TIGERS: 2
LAKEVILLE HIGH SCHOOL: 0

The CARO Tigers were hosting the team from Lakeville for the first District game. The game had to be delayed by 20 minutes due to a passing thunderstorm with lightenings. The game started with some convincing efforts from the home team. The fight for the ball wether on the ground or in the air was equally demonstrated by both teams. However, the Tigers came on top with a couple breakaways and close misses to score but without any outcome. Then, Captain and Junior Tanner Smith took a free kick from outside the box and his shot surprised the Lakeville goalie who could not save the ball cruising on top of him towards the net. Captain Smith put his team ahead with a 1-0 lead and his teammates responded well to this advantage. The center midfield was well managed by Captain and Junior Marik Phillips who was able to contain his opponent and support his defense who was led amazingly by Sophomore and Sweeper Jeremiah Anderson. With 10 minutes to go to the half, Captain and Senior Blake Spencer who had various opportunities to score deflected a ball cleared by one Lakeville defender to find Captain Smith who with a nice shot found again the back of the net for his second goal of the game. The first half verdict stayed unchanged at 2-0 in favor of the Caro team.

The coach's speech was encouraging and congratulated his team who put in the effort and set the tone first. However, he warned his players not to relax with this 2 goal lead and stick with the game plan and basics and more passing transitioning from left to right of the field.

Second half was again dominated by the hosts and the Caro team came close in many occasions to score more goals but without any impact on the scoreboard. The score stayed unchanged and the Tigers advance to the next round with this 2-0 win against Lakeville.

Sophomore and goalie Logan McGarry earned his 3rd shutout of the season thanks to his amazing saves and the tremendous support from his defense. 

The MVP award/trophy was presented to Captain and Junior Tanner Smith who scored the 2 goals for his team and played a spectacular defensive game all along.

The coach is very pleased with his team performance and will prepare his players for the next game at tomorrow's practice at high school from 12:15 to 1:30 pm.

Next round will be played at Atwood Stadium in Flint where the Caro Tigers will be facing the Flint Power Catholics on Monday October 18th at 5 pm. Bus will leave at 2:40 pm from the high school on Monday.
