Lady Wolves host Youth Night, April 27

Kickers posted their first win and shutout in Royal Oak last Thursday, 2-0.
“The last couple games were really good,” said Damian Huffer, head coach for Clarkston Girls Varsity Soccer. “We took our chances and worked hard.”
The Wolves took the lead in the first half with a goal from sophomore Sonia Kinal into the far corner of the left side of the net.
They added one more before the half closed from freshman Rielee Fetty as she broke from the halfway line and didn’t stop until she put the ball into the bottom corner of the net.
“It was a great finish and just reward for Fetty, who’s had a great start to the season,” Huffer said.
He added junior Elle Vondette and senior Katie Schrei were great on defense.
“Basically every attack Royal Oak had, they stopped,” he said. “Pleased to see them finally get a ‘W.'”
The Lady Wolves opened last week with a 1-1 tie at Oxford. The Wildcats took the lead five minutes into the game. Clarkston controlled most of the possession during the first half.
It was with ten minutes left in the game the Lady Wolves finally broke through when junior Anna Lebourdais won a free kick from 25 yards out. She shot the ball into the roof of the net to tie the game.
“We switched to a 3-4-3 formation and tried to chase the game a bit and be offensive minded,” Huffer said. “As a result Anna went down the left side.”
With less than a minute to go, senior goalie Kristen Page made a save to keep the game tied.
“It was a fair result for two evenly matched teams,” Huffer said.
The Lady Wolves opened the week on Monday against Troy Athens with a 2-1 loss.They continue the week on Thursday when they host Farmington.
“We get Michaela Rodriguez back, she is going to a massive threat. She is probably our quickest forward,” Huffer said.
“There is enough talent on the team to take chances as long as we continue to play good defense we will be able to win a lot of these games. As long as the effort is there then I really can’t complain. It’s been good. I have been able to get everyone a fair amount of playing time. Every girl has played a big part and there is a fair amount of team spirit,” he said.
They host West Bloomfield next Tuesday when they will also hold Senior Night for their seven seniors and honor their parents.
The Lady Wolves invite the community to join them April 27 for Youth Soccer Night which includes a 50/50 raffle and trivia questions with plenty of prizes. Kids will also enjoy the popular halftime shoot out for a free hot dog.
Admission is free for kids wearing their soccer jerseys and the young players can join the varsity players as they enter the field for introductions and the national anthem.
