The New Boston Huron soccer team traveled to Gibraltar Carlson to face Grosse Ile in a Huron League opener for both schools on Tuesday. Playing conditions at both Grosse Ile and Huron forced the game to be played at Carlson.
Grosse Ile scored midway through the first half for a 1-0 lead. The score remained 1-0 until the Red Devils punched in the second goal with 10 seconds left in the match.
“It was a very good game and both teams played hard in the horrendous wind,” said Grosse Ile coach Amy Rossow. “We thank Carlson for allowing us to use their field. It allowed us to guarantee a playable game.”
Grosse Ile's young defense held strong, limiting the scoring opportunities of the Chiefs. Senior co-captain Olivia Koklanaris helped to control the action on the defensive line along with sophomores Olivia Reckley, Melissa Brick and Katie Williams, juniors Nicole DeSana and Annette Marchewka and freshman Alyson Lemerand.
Grosse Ile's offense kept the ball rolling and battling the wind in the first half managed to put a goal between the posts about 20 minutes into the game.
Freshman midfielder Abby King took the ball deep sending a ball toward the net. Fellow freshman Kelsie Krauss finished the shot and put GI up 1-0.
This score remained for the majority of the game no matter the hard attacking set ups that sophomore Kate Tobin and sophomore Caroline Fleming created.
Both teams continued to battle until the last 10 seconds of the game when King once again set up a GI forward; this time assisting sophomore Maddie Thompson to help GI earn their first league game 2-0.
“It was a very tough game to open the season,” said Huron coach Dan Rossow. “Grosse Ile was a very quick and well coached team. The first half was played mainly through the midfield and was fairly even.
“In the second half we didn’t generate much offensively. Carley Ames played well in goal and the first one they scored was a rebound after she made a very tough save. Sydney Toth played well in the midfield.
“Our defense played a solid game as well. We have some kinks to iron out on the offensive side that will come with more practice.”
Huron plays at Carleton Airport on Thursday.
Grosse Ile plays at Jefferson on Friday.
