WEDNESDAY’S PREP GIRLS SOCCER ROUNDUP: Byron Center edges Forest Hills Northern; Saugatuck downs Constantine; Grosse Ile rallies against New Boston Huron

BYRON CENTER, Mich. – Grand Rapids Forest Hills Northern is the defending champion in the Ottawa Kent Conference White Division girls soccer circles.

Byron Center made sure that it will be a huge factor in the race this season after finishing third out of eight schools last season.

Byron Center outduled Forest Hills Northern 3-1 Wednesday in the OKC-White Division opener for both schools.

Senior forward Claire VanZanten scored bookend goals and assisted on the other to lead the Bulldogs (2-1-0, 1-0-0). Senior Makenna Lange scored the other goal for Byron Center.

Junior Auden Stauffer scored for Forest Hills Northern (3-1-0, 0-1-0).

SAUGATUCK 4, CONSTANTINE 1: Sophomore Neave Rewa scored just 22 seconds into the game and Saugatuck cruised to this Southwestern Athletic Conference-Lakeshore Division road victory Wednesday.

Rewa, CeCe Atkins and Avery Smith all scored in the second half, while Rewa and Jennifer Schrock had assists.

Kennedy Gustafson picked up six saves in the win for Saugatuck (1-2-1, 1-1-1).


GROSSE ILE 3, NEW BOSTON HURON 3: Grosse Ile goalkeeper headed home a Mallory Botten cornerkick with seven seconds remaining in the contest, as the Red Devils pulled even with New Boston Huron in this Huron League clash Wednesday.

Aubrey Korody scored in the third minute off an assists from Cassidy Eblin, but the lead didn’t last long..

Huron freshman Miley Skamiera netted an equalizer in the 13th minute for the Chiefs.

New Boston Huron took a 2-1 advantage in the 41st minute when Ava Banko scored an unassisted goal, while Maggie Mentzer gave the Chiefs a 3-1 advantage in the 55th minute.


Ella Gatti punched one in off an assist from Korody in the 61st minute and Grosse Ile continued to press until Arndt’s unlikely last-minute heroics.


AUBURN HILLS AVONDALE 3, NORTH FARMINGTON 3: Goals have been hard to come by so far this season for young Avondale. Lainey Pruzinsky made sure that changed in this OAA Blue Division contest Wednesday. A returning sophomore All-League player, Pruzinsky netted all three goals for the Yellowjackets.


NORTH MUSKEGON 3, HART 0: Hart goalkeeper single-handily kept the game close against one of the premier Division 4 programs in the state in this West Michigan Conference game.  Jeffries made 10 saves, including a full-extension save late in the first half, and was active in patrolling the box in the defeat.


TRENTON 3, WOODHAVEN 0: Trenton scored two first-half goals, added another in the second half and even halted a penalty kick in this Downriver League rivalry game pitting the top two teams in the nine-school conference last year. Claire Gonyea (Eastern Michigan) scored what proved to be the game winner off a pass from Maddie Reamer. The same duo hooked up for the second game of the contest, this time Gonyea serving up Reamer for a goal, her first varsity career tally, in the 29th minute for the 2-0 advantage. Gonyea set up senior classmate Kira Johnson with the third goal – a 35-year banger – while Gorno stopped four shots, including a penalty kick save in the 70th minute for the Trojans (4-0-0, 2-0-0). Trenton held a 22-4 shots edge in the contest and also held a 7-1 advantage on cornerkicks.
