In a wet Saturday morning contest, Father Gabriel Richard (Ann Arbor) visited Oakland Christian in a non-conference match. In the first half, both teams kept it tied with it being an even match throughout. However, late in the first half, the Irish capitalized and scored 3 goals before the halftime horn.
In the second half, OCS came out in an effort to regroup. Gabriel Richard netted 2 more goals to go up 5-0. However, the Lancers did not give up and scored four goals: Junior Connor Butcher with 2, freshman Avery Almy with 1, and Junior Toño Muñoz with a brilliant volley.
Unfortunately, OCS ran out of time but showed character and heart by not giving up until the final horn.
The Lancers take the road on Tuesday as they visit MIAC conference leader, Roeper at 4:30pm at Ultimate Soccer in Pontiac.
