FOREST HILLS NORTHERN HIGH: 1
The JV Eagles matched up against a difficult opponent in Forest Hills Northern on Wednesday night for the second game of conference tournament play.
In a rematch from a previous Eagles loss, the boys came to play today looking for some redemption. With a high energy style of play, the boys pressed high and looked to send the ball to the wings to get some attacking options. However, both teams struggled to create any clear cut chances on goal and nothing separated the teams at the half.
Again, the Eagles came out hard in the second half, but had some nervy moments on some Northern set pieces. Grand Rapids Christian produced some chances on the break but just could not capitalize. The deadlock was broken by Forest Hills Northern after a failed clearance and they were able to put the ball into the net. The JV boys kept their heads up however and kept pressing. The game was tied up after a throw in that landed to Peter Borst. He launched the bouncing ball from 30 yards out that rifled into the Huskies goal to tie it up spectacularly. The deadlock remained the rest of the game with Chase Harmelink coming up with some big saves in goal and Tyler DeBoer putting in a shift to shut down the Huskies offense in the midfield.
The last game for the JV boys will be Monday, October 11 at 6pm at Eagle Stadium.
