ROCHESTER HILLS – Two-time defending Oakland Activities Association Red Division champion Rochester picked up where it left off inside league play.


The Falcons upended visiting Oxford Thursday night 2-1 in the league opener for both teams.


Rochester captured the league crown the past two seasons and were undefeated in league play both times. The Falcons were also third in the standings back in 2021.

Rochester‘s only losses the last two years came in the state semifinals in 2022 and in the district finals last season.


Stella Marrow scored the first goal and Katelyn Guolla notched the eventual game-winner I the second half off a banger from distance for the Falcons (1-0-0, 1-0-0).

Rochester finished 18-1-2 last season and 4-0-2 in league play with 14 points. The Falcons outscored its opposition 54-13 last season with 11 shutouts.


Ella Boyd scored for Oxford (1-1-0, 0-1-0).


The Wildcats were the OAA White Division champions last season, edging Birmingham Seaholm on points (15-14) and were elevated to the OAA Red Division this year for the first time since leaving the Flint Metro League in 2010 and joining the Oakland Activities Association.


HARTLAND 3, NORTHVILLE 0: Hartland grabbed the early driver’s seat Thursday with an impressive shutout over two-time defending KLAA-West Division champion Northville, which reached the Division 1 Final Four the last two years.


Northville finished 11-0-3 inside the division last season for 36 points and went on to win the KLAA Tournament championship as well. Hartland finished second in the eight-school KLAA-West last year with an 8-3-3 record, good for 27 points.


Freshman Claire L’Esperance, junior Alye Daavettila and junior Addie Frantti scored the goals for the Eagles while junior Jenna Brock notched the clean sheet in goal on the strength of six saves.


Junior Emma Kastamo and Daavettila added assists for Hartland, which led 2-0 at the half and limited the Mustangs’ scoring chances throughout the game.


ROYAL OAK 8, FARMINGTON 2: After finishing in sixth in the OAA White Division last season, the Ravens made quite a statement with this league win Thursday. Royal Oak scored five times in the final 28 minutes to break the game open. Katilyn Eberhardt scored two goals, while Caroline Bowman, Reagan Mason, Jordan Hills, Ceci Irwin, Mary Coburn and Jordan LaBarge also scored for the Ravens (1-1-0, 1-0-0). Teah Tremonti scored twice for Farmington (0-3-0, 0-1-0).

TRAVERSE CITY ST. FRANCIS 3, ELK RAPIDS 0: Nearly 10 months after being knocked out of the Division 3 districts by Elk Rapids, St. Francis gained its measure of revenge with three first-half goals Thursday and the defense made it all stand. Lilianna David gave St. Francis (1-0-0) the 1-0 lead in the 20th minute, which proved to be the game winner. Riley Collins scored the second goal before the half and then Collins inserted a pass from Sidney Peters just before halftime for the Gladiators. Paisleigh Upshaw notched shutout between the pipes.

 

ROMEO 2, UTICA 2:  Romeo and Utica battled to this draw in a MAC crossover contest Thursday. Freshman Lexi Meier scored both goals for Romeo.

HARBOR SPRINGS 8, BOYNE CITY 4: Two of the better Division 3 programs faced off Thursday and combined for 12 goals.  Lizzie Bassett and Stephanie Reskevics both netted a brace, while Francis Warren, Sophie Barnadyn, Grace Hallock and Genevieve also scored for Harbor Springs.

SALINE 0, WALLED LAKE NORTHERN 0: A pair of defending league champions squared off Thursday with this key non-league matchup and both walked off the field with nothing settled in a scoreless draw. Saline won the Southeastern Conference-Red Division last season and advanced to the Division 1 Final Four. Walled Lake Northern finished as the Lakes Valley Conference regular season and conference tournament champion and also won a Division 1 district.

TRAVERSE CITY CENTRAL 3, MT. PLEASANT 0: Tessa Petty scored two goals and assisted on the other to lead the Trojans to the non-league victory. Lucia France also scored, Sofia Bird had an assist and Amelia Jordan notched the clean sheet in net.

BYRON 5, POTTERVILLE 1: Kelsey Stiver scored for Potterville in this non-conference defeat.

TRAVERSE CITY WEST 2, LUDINGTON 0: The Titans posted a 32-3 shots advantage over Ludington and cruised to the non-league win. Avery Plummer and freshman Nora Buttleman score for Traverse City West. Claire Minor had three saves in goal for the shutout.

LAINGSBURG 1, OVID-ELSIE 1: Evalyn Cole scored for O-E and Ava Bates had eight saves in goal for the Marauders. Cole has signed with Cleary College for soccer and Bates has committed to Northern Michigan University for basketball.
