WEDNESDAY’S PREP GIRLS SOCCER ROUNDUP: Unity Christian fends off Holland Christian; Gull Lake blanks Lakeview; Trenton cruises; Groves-Seaholm battle to draw


HUDSONVILLE, Mich. – Even though Hudsonville Unity Christian returned single digits in terms of players who spent all of last season on varsity, the Crusaders’ train keeps rolling.


Unity Christian stayed perfect on the year, as Division 3 top-ranked Unity Christian defeated Ottawa Kent Conference-Blue Division rival Holland Christian 2-1 to clinch the No. 1 seed in the upcoming conference tournament in two weeks.


After a scoreless first half, Kyra Kobrzycki scored in the 42nd minute for Unity Christian (10-0-0, 7-0-0). Stella Desmit netted what proved to be the game-winner in the 52nd minute for the Cruaders.


Holland Christian spoiled the shutout when Sarah Geerlings scored off a free kick in the 78th minute for the Maroons (5-4-1, 4-2-1).


Anna Newhof recorded the win in goal with three saves.


RICHLAND GULL LAKE 5, BATTLE CREEK LAKEVIEW 0: With multiple schools still involved in the title chase for the Southwestern Michigan Athletic Conference title, Gull Lake added to its win total Wednesday night to remain alive. Four different players scored in this conference victory for the Blue Devils, who now own a 28-5 scoring edge this season with six shutouts and no team scoring more than one goal on the Gull Lake defense. Bella Carr notched the clean sheet between the framework and Taygan Corstange scored twice for Gull Lake (8-1-2, 5-1-1), which is just behind Portage Central in the 10-school SMAC standings. Gull Lake defeated Portage Central (8-1-1, 6-1-0) last week.


TRENTON 3, DEARBORN EDSEL FORD 0: Trenton is really playing like a side that wants to defend its Downriver League championship. Claire Gonyea scored her 21st goal of the campaign, Chloe Wishart netted her 14th marker on the campaign and Avery Schultz booted home her third gola of the year in the Tojans’ league victory. Wishart also added her 11th assist and Alyssa Brandy also picked up an assist. Leila Gorno recorded her 11th shutout of the season for Trenton (11-2, 7-0).


BIRMINGHAM GROVES 0, BIRMINGHAM SEAHOLM 0: These two arch-rivals and OAA-White Division foes decided nothing following this league draw Wednesday night in Birmingham.  Ava Loiselle notched the clean sheet for Groves (6-4-1), while Sydney Ryan recorded the shutout for Seaholm (4-5-3).


WOODHAVEN 2, GIBRALTAR-CARLSON 1: Woodhaven tripped up Gibraltar in Downriver League play Wednesday night.


BOYNE CITY 5, KINGSLEY 1: Braydin Noble finished with two goals and three assists as Boyne City rolled to this Lake Michigan Conference victory. Gabby Dunlop added two goals, Mackensy Wilson also scored and Piper Oliver and Allie Wilson split time in net to share the win. Bailey Charter scored for Kingsley.


HARTLAND 1, NORTHVILLE 0: Hartland rebounded from a non-league loss to fellow state-ranked side Midland Down over the weekend to down Northville in this key KLAA-West Division contest.

Katie Swirczek scored on a penalty kick in the 34th minute and Jenna Brock made it stand with nine saves for the league-leading Eagles (9-2-1, 8-1-1), which still sits in first place in the eight-school division. Two-time defending champion Northville, fresh off a tournament title on Saturday at the Rochester Falcons Friendlies, slipped into fifth place in the league with the loss.


MARSHALL 3, GRAND LEDGE 3: This non-conference match ended in a draw as the two teams combined for six goals to light up the scoreboard. Stefanie DeLong scored an unassisted goal, Ollie Rozell scored off a breakaway feed from Addie Waito and Rozell tied the game in the 73rd minute with her second goal of the night for Marshall (5-3-2). The RedHawks had led 1-0 early and 2-1 at the half only to fall into a 3-2 hole midway through the second half.
