MONDAY’S PREP GIRLS SOCCER ROUNDUP: West Catholic returns home to down Hamilton; Saugatuck, Eisenhower, Romeo all posts shutouts


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Life on the road has been somewhat tough over the last two and a half weeks for Grand Rapids West Catholic.

The xxx played Ottawa Kent Conference-Blue Division road games at Division 3 top-ranked Hudsonville Unity Christian (4-0 loss) and Division 2 top-ranked Spring Lake (2-2 tie), not to mention Division 3 No. 2-ranked Flint Powers Catholic (2-0 loss), Division 3 12th-ranked Milan (2-1 win) and Division 4 third-ranked Muskegon Western Michigan Christian (2-1 loss).

As it has been said, life on the road has been tough, difficult, challenging.

West Catholic returned to home sweet home to face OKC-Blue Division foe Hamilton, which was formerly listed as honorable mention in the Division 2 rankings and came away with a 5-0 shutout of the Hawkeyes, who do have an NCAA Division I center back in their lineup.

Abby Druelle got her team going in the second minute with a unassisted goal, which proved later to be the game-winner. Claire Arends added a goal in the 13th minute, Hadley Giradot scored in the 16th minute and Claire Smith the 32nd minute as the Falcons led 4-0 at the half.

In the second half, Natalie Kwaitkowski converted in the 50th minute to cap the scoring for West Catholic (8-4-2, 2-2-2).

Katelyn Adams recorded six saves for her team’s fourth shutout on the campaign. The Falcons own a 32-24 scoring edge despite their brutally tough schedule.

Hamilton is 3-5-1 overall and 1-4-1 in league play.

SAUGATUCK 1, SOUTH HAVEN 0: The Trailblazers kept pace in the Southwestern Athletic Conference-Lakeshore Division with this shutout win Monday over South Haven. Jennifer Schrock extended her goals-streak to six games with her tally coming in the 23rd minute. Neave Rewa drew the assist on the game-winner. Kennedy Gustafson made six saves for the shutout for Saugatuck, which moved to 7-0-1 in the month of April. The Trailblazers (7-2-2, 3-0-1) control their own destiny in the SAC-Lakeshore, as they stand in second place one game behind league leader Holland Black River. If Saugatuck can win out they will at least share the division crown.

UTICA EISENHOWER 3, MACOMB DAKOTA 0: Eisenhower scored three unanswered goals in the second half after a scoreless first half and posted the shutout win in the Macomb Area Conference-Red Division. Sophomore Ellera Jakubowski scored a penalty kick goal and assisted on Ava Dukaj’s goal for a 2-0 lead. Dukaj added an insurance tally off a pass from Sonja Peterson for Eisenhower (6-1-1, 3-0-0). The Eagles have now outscored MAC-Red opponents 10-1 so far this season, as they are trying to defend their league title.

ROMEO 4, GROSSE POINTE NORTH 0: Goals have been hard to come by for Romeo this season, but the Bulldogs erupted for four goals Monday against defending Division 2 state champion Grosse Pointe North in Macomb Area Conference-Red Division play. Sam Sackfield, Taylor Hunt, Jillian Wilkinson and Allison Szalewicz scored for Romeo while Hunt, Sackfield, Clare Carmody and Ava Blomquist recorded assists. Chloe Witte notched the shutout for Romeo (3-5-2, 2-1-1).

STERLING HEIGHTS STEVENSON 6, FRASER 1: Presley Jones continues to find the back of the net and Stevenson continues its turnaround job from last year’s sub-five-hundred record with this win Monday in Macomb Area Conference-White Division play. Jones netted the hattrick to give her 15 goals on the season and lead the Titans. Lilly Kulczycki, Maria Micakaj and Lexi Curzydlo also scored one goal apiece while Jones drew two assists, Isabelle Reda had two assists and Ava MacGowan and Mailee McKnee had single assists for the Titans. Lexi Curzydlo, Chloe Niassan, Sophia Gibala and McKnee starred defensively for Stevenson (6-5-0, 3-3-0). Stevenson has outscored its foes 30-19 this season after and have only surrendered two goals during a four-game win streak. Last year the Titans only finished 6-11-3 and have already matched last season’s win total in April.

MATTAWAN 2, BATTLE CREEK LAKEVIEW 1: Mattawan, the defending SWMAC champion, moved into fifth place in the 10-school league with this narrow in Monday.

PORTAGE CENTRAL 2, PORTAGE NORTHERN 0: The Mustangs remained in a first-place tie in the Southwestern Michigan Athletic Conference with Kalamazoo Loy-Norrix with this win over their arch-rivals from Portage Northern..
