MILLINGTON – The Millington girls soccer team lost 8-0 to Garber on Monday. The loss for the Cardinals was the second straight defeat and drops the teams overall record to 1-3. Garber (7-1-2) picked up its first win in Tri-Valley East Conference play and is half a game behind Frankenmuth (3-2-1, 2-0 TVC-East) in the early season conference standings.
“We knew going into these past two games that it would be rough,” Millington coach Andrew Selich said. “Garber has a really experienced team this season, and Frankenmuth is always a handful. The conference champion this year will most likely be one of those two teams.”
Against Garber, freshman Danielle Kociba made her first career start as goalkeeper in the absence of Hannah Bees, who was still recovering from surgery from late last week. Kociba made 15 saves in the loss, and played well against one of the highest scoring teams in the area.
“We never really generated any offense in this one,” Coach Selich said. “We need to find an ounce of consistency on offense, and we to find it soon.”
Millington’s next game is Wednesday, April 24, at Standish-Sterling High School. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30pm.
