Final Score: Ionia 4 – Owosso 2
Well, it was a long time coming but the boys finally capped the regular season with a win over Owosso to post a respectable season record of 9-6-3.
Tonight’s match was wet/muddy and it ws fun to watch. But it must have been even more fun to play in it.
We hadn’t been playing much as a team the last few games but tonight was a much better team performance. The messy pitch made it difficult to control the ball, but considering the conditions, we did a pretty good job of moving the ball and supporting each other.
There was a lot of attacking in the game, with both teams combining for a total of 35 shots. Skyler Metzger registered 15 saves. One of his biggest tallies on the season. The goals came when we needed them and even though there was a brief moment where Owosso struck back with two quick goals late in the half, Ionia was not going to allow the game to slip away.
