The Woodhaven girls’ soccer team has a checklist of big opponents to cross off the season and with 10 games under its belt, the team is sitting pretty comfortable.

A win against Carlson; check.

A win against Anderson; check.

A win against Trenton: check.

The latest Downriver League heavyweight opponent came Monday night when the Warriors traveled to Trenton.

Woodhaven came back from an early deficit to score five unanswered goals for the 5-1 win.

And it seems to be the theme of the season. The Warriors are 8-0-2 so far this spring and have overcome some rough starts and less than ideal playing situations to gain their wins.

As the only girls’ soccer team to ever win the Downriver League title, the Warriors are always playing with a target on their back, but it doesn’t seem to bother them.

Especially this year. The girls are scoring goals left and right, a few even with some hat tricks under their belt and it looks to be a promising year that wont be stopped by even a pesky Saline team in districts.

“It’s probably the best way to go into spring break,” Coach Scott Hoye said after his team’s win over Trenton. “The girls have accomplished a lot so far, but it’s early; it’s only 10 games into our year.”

Hoye and his Warriors knew how important it was to get first-round wins over the other DRL heavyweights.

“The checklist is Southgate, Carlson and Trenton,” he said. “We had to get through them, but of course we’re not done yet; we have the crossover games coming up in May.

“We’re celebrating of course. We’ll celebrate all the way to the 28th when we play our next game.”

Hoye and his team will take almost a two week break over the holiday vacation but they won let up their focus.

“We know nothing’s for granted yet,” Hoye said.

But he’s optimistic.

“It’s just a special team,” he said. “Over break we’ll have a couple days of conditioning and a mandatory practice when all the girls are back in town.”

The Warriors take on Truman, which would prove to be another tough opponent the first day back from spring break.

“They’ll be ready to go for the Truman game,” Hoye said. “Truman’s no slouch either.”
