The Clarkston Girls Field Hockey team tied their home opener against Edsel Ford last Wednesday, 0-0.
The Wolves kept their opponents down to five shots on the net, down from the 17 shots Rockford made in the season opener.
“It was a major improvement,” said Cary Exline, head coach, adding the girls had more opportunities to make shots on the goal. “We had very few chances in last Saturday’s game. The first game jitters are gone and they started playing as a team, like they are supposed to. They are on the right track.
Players of the game were Larkin O’Donnell and Mackenzie Fazekas.
“They deserved it,” Exline said. “They both were all the things we talked about in the days leading up the game. We asked them to be more aggressive, be more decisive and move the ball. Both of them were aggressive and took control of the ball.”
The Wolves host Bloomfield Hills on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. They head to Edsel Ford on Thursday, 6 p.m., and West Bloomfield on Monday at 7 p.m.
“I am optimist,” said Exline.
