Game Date
May 18, 2022
Score
EAGLES: 1
GROSSE POINTE NORTH HIGH SCHOOL: 1

The Eisenhower Girls Varsity Soccer team hosted Grosse Pointe North at Swinehart and celebrated the last time the Six Seniors will step on the field in a regular-season game.  The game kicked off with a beautiful, LIVE rendition of the National Anthem, sung by the Senior IKE ensemble - consisting of Conde Gonzalez, Angelina, Kashmikha, Hailey Nichols and Lydia Mervar.

Ike maintained possession for the better part of the first half, outshooting GPN significantly, but as the Eagles learned earlier in the season, the GPN Keeper was not allowing anything past her, and just prior to the half the Norseman were able to score one,  heading into the break with a slight advantage.

Halftime was spent honoring the teams six Seniors, starting with #2 - Senior Captain Lexi Morrison - 4 year Varsity Player and Valedictorian.  Lexi plans to attend The University of Michigan to study Biomedical.  # Engineering.  Next up #9, Senior Captain Lily Arcari who has played Ike Soccer for 4 seasons and plans to continue playing at Delta College while studying Sports Medicine.  #12 Sadie Zyczynski has played 4 years with the Ike Soccer program, the past two years with the Varsity squad and is graduating Magna Cum Laude and as an AP Scholar, planning to attend MSU to study Biology at the College of Nursing.  #13 Senior Captain Natalie Tangelder has been with the Ike Soccer program for 4 years, the last two with the Varsity squad and will graduate Valedictorian and as an AP Scholar.  She plans to attend Bowling Green University to study Criminal Justice and Forensic Science.   #14 Zoya Dimovich has played soccer with the Ike Program for four years, the last 2 with the Varsity team.  Zoya will graduate as Valedictorian and and AP Scholar and plans to attend Oakland Universities Business School.  #21 Amanda Stout has been a member of the Ike Varsity Soccer program for 3 years and plans to attend Cosmetology school, after graduations.   All of these great players and students were honored along with their parents.  We have appreciated having these families as part of the Ike Soccer program and were able to wish them well in their future plans. 

The second half continued much like the first half.  Ike dominated possession and continued to keep the GPN Goalkeeper very busy.   Late in the half, a collision between the GPN keeper and an Ike Forward, resulted in a game stoppage -- giving the teams some time to catch their breath.  That seemed to be just what Eisenhower needed, as with just over 3 minutes left in the game, Junior Marisa Merski was able to strike the ball from the left side (but with her right foot - - she's a lefty), hitting open net and earning the equalizer and that's how the game ended in a 1-1 tie.

The Lady Eagles kick off post-season play on Thursday, May 26th at Swinehart - vs. Utica.  Gametime is 7pm.  Come on out and support the Eagles in post-season play.   Just a reminder that for MHSSA hosted post-season games - your UCS/Booster passes will no longer be accepted.

Looking forward to seeing a BIG CROWD to support the girls!!
