There was a storm delay in Freeland to start the day, canceling the JV match. A second storm came through at 7pm though– in the form of Frankenmuth soccer. As in the past, it was a physical battle from the kickoff. There were over 25 fouls whistled in the game, along with a host of yellow cards. The teams battled back and forth, until in the 20th minute, senior Evan Baker sent a dime across the face of the goal to the foot of freshman Braeden Mossner. The Eagle defense continued to hold steady, despite the onslaught of dump and chase balls that Freeland sent through. In the 33rd minute, however, Freeland was able to convert on a through ball that made it to the foot of their speedy striker, resulting in a 1v1 breakaway against the stalwart Muth keeper Austin Hergenreder. Both teams went into the half with the score knotted at 1.
