Prep roundup: McBain NMC scores late goal to finish 16-win season | Local Sports
MCBAIN – Usually a last minute goal for winning a soccer game is not scored in the 59th minute.
But that’s how McBain Northern Michigan Christian ended his regular season with a 2-1 win over Traverse City Christian at home. It solidifies a 16-1-1 record for NMCS, with the only blemishes being a 2-0 loss to Ogemaw Heights and a 3-3 draw with Glen Lake.
Due to the bad weather, the game was delayed by an hour. Coaches and ADs decided to cut the game down to two 30-minute halves after 7pm due to darkness issues
“Tonight was a silly game,” said NMCS coach Taylor Mulder.
McBain’s Tucker Tossey scored in the 53rd minute, assisted by Seth VanHaitsma.
The Sabers goal came after a corner kick from Henry Reineck to Cole Wierda, which sealed the game in the 55th minute. It was the first time the Comets had allowed a corner goal in the entire season.
NMCS’s Mekhi Harris scored the green goal with a penalty in the 59th minute to take the lead and win. Blake DeZeeuw made four saves for the Comets.
“Our defenses have shown the fruits of our training and performed well against all attacks,” said Mulder.
The Monday game is the last time the two schools meet for this year. The Comets are number 1 in their Division 4 district, with LeRoy Pine River traveling to a semifinal game on Tuesday, October 19 at 5pm
