Hartland High School
Northville High School
What a game for Hartland Varsity Soccer last night! Hartland upset Northville, a top-ten state ranked team, finishing at 8-4-1 in the KLAA. The Eagles travelled to Northville, who sits atop the KLAA gold standings, to win its seventh league game in a row.
Ben Martin scored the winning goal from an assist by Anthony Tamas for the Eagles with 16:04 left in the first half. Kieran Malachino and Kyle Ford each had four saves to secure the shutout. It was a very intense game with tough defense, great ball movement, and lots of talking on the field, all important factors for coming home with the win.
The Eagles march into the post-season on a 7-game win streak. Hartland will host a KLAA crossover this Wednesday, kick off at 7:00, before entering District competition next Tuesday 10/17 at home against Lakeland with a 6:00 start time.
