For the sixth consecutive year, the Woodhaven Warriors are the champions of girls soccer Downriver.

Scott Hoye and the Lady Warriors clinched the title by downing Trenton 4-0 in front of their home fans on Wednesday night.

Mike Hatfield-coached teams are always a struggle to play against, and the effort was there for Trenton, they were just unable to muster much of an offensive attack against unbeaten Woodhaven.

Alexis May scored on a high-floating goal that dipped just under the crossbar and into the goal three minutes into the game and Woodhaven never coughed up the lead.

However, Hoye said he thought his team played like they were satisfied after tallying the early goal.

“The communication was great those first few minutes of the game,” Hoye said. “The connections on the passes were solid, and so were the combinations. Then we kind of flattened out and Trenton’s too good to take lightly. That goal perked Trenton up and they really came at us.”

Although Woodhaven would not score again in the first half, they came out in the second recharged and repeatedly tested Trojans’ net minder Haley Osbourne in the second half.

Osbourne played well, making plenty of key saves, but the Warriors wore Trenton down late in the contest, tacking on three more goals to finish the Trojans off, 4-0.

Abbey Lorenz and Katlyn Varney scored the second and third goals of the night, respectively, while May picked up her second goal of the evening on a penalty kick with only eight seconds left in the game.

The loss drops Trenton’s record to 8-6-2. They’ll tangle with Southgate Anderson on Friday.

The Warriors (14-0-2) will play Carlson next before visiting Ann Arbor Gabriel-Richard, returning home to face Garden City, and then diving into district action.
