TUESDAY’S PREP GIRLS SOCCER ROUNDUP: Notre Dame Prep blanks Genesee Christian: Petoskey edges Gaylord; Cedar Springs upsets No. 1 South Christian

PONTIAC, Mich. – To his own estimates, Pontiac Notre Dame Prep girls soccer coach Jimmy Stachura felt like his team overall had a little bit less experience as compared to some of his other teams in the last decade-plus.

Even last year’s team won a Division 3 district crown. In 2022 and 2017, the Fighting Irish reached the regional finals. The 2016 version captured the state title in a shootout just to mention a few of the top teams the school has produced in recent campaigns.

On Tuesday in a battle of Independents, Division 3 10th-ranked Notre Dame Prep cruised to a 4-0 win over Burton Genesee Christian to remain unbeaten. The Fighting Irish improved to 6-0-2 this season in a year after graduating 10 players and losing some other key players to year-round club soccer.

Junior Adriana Lorenz scored all four goals to lead Notre Dame Prep. Maggie Maher and Ellie Whalen had assists and Giulia Morreale and Leila Mains shared the shutout in goal for the Fighting Irish.


PETOSKEY 2, GAYLORD 1: For the first time this season, an opposing team was able to scored on the Norsemen.


Gaylord senior Claire Gorno converted a shot in the first half to break the shutout streak by Petoskey. The visiting Norsemen still found a way to persevere in the end.


Haidyn Wegmann scored on a goal-mouth scramble following an Annika Gandhi free kick into the box with 20 seconds to go which proved to be the game-winner for Petoskey (7-0-0, 3-0-0), which has outscored the opposition 21-1 this season with six shutouts.


Lauren Cole tied the game in the 69th minute for the Norsemen.


CEDAR SPRINGS 1, GRAND RAPIDS SOUTH CHRISTIAN 0: Cedar Springs pulled a huge upset in OKC-Gold Division play Tuesday, stunning the Division 3 top-raked team in South Christian. Albion College commit Kelsi Green scored for Cedar Springs (4-2-1, 3-1-0), which is now tied with South Christian (6-2-1, 3-1-0) in second place in the OKC-Gold behind Middleville Thornapple-Kellogg.


MILFORD 6, SOUTH LYON 0: Rylee Felton scored twice and Milford kept up the pace in the Lakes Valley Conference with the six-goal outburst.

Oxford slipped to 4-4-1 and 2-2-0 in the OAA-Red.

AUBURN HILLS OAKLAND CHRISTIAN 8, SOUTHFIELD CHRISTIAN/NOVI CHRISTIAN UNIFIED 0: Rowan Klein and Jessica Reyes each scored two goals and added an assist apiece to lead unbeaten Oakalnd Christian (5-00, 2-0-0) to the MIAC win.
