HENRY FORD II HIGH SCHOOL: 0
The Lady Eagles hosted Ford II in a MAC Red showdown at Swinehart on Monday. The game did not disappoint as an evenly matched battle entertained a great group of fans through the first half, ending scoreless after 40 minutes of play.
The second half of the game things started leaning a bit in Ikes favor and with about 17 minutes left in the game, Senior Captain Nina Ferraro took a shot from the top of the box on an assist from Junior Lily Arcari, finally breaking the deadlock and putting the Eagles up by one. The offense continued to role, finding the combination to breaking through the strong Falcon back-line and a couple of minutes later, Junior Lexi Morrison scored on an assist from Senior Captain Maria Riggio. Senior Marissa Marlett capped it off with a 3rd goal on an assist from Morrison, ending tha game in a 3-0 victory.
Ike, who is 3-0-1 in the MAC Red Conference and 5-1-4 overall, out-shot Ford 8-2 and earned 3 corners to their 2. Sophomore Amy Sidaway recorded a shut-out in net, but the biggest play of the night was when Junior right back Natalie Tangelder, came up with an goal-saving stop on what was likely Fords best scoring opportunity of the night and sealed the shut-out.
Eisenhower hosts Grosse Point North on Wednesday, in another MAC Red match-up. Game time is 6pm.
