The Grant soccer squad held off a late charge from Tri-County and notched a 5-4 victory over their CSAA rivals.
For the first 20 minutes the two teams went scoreless but the Tiger’s offense started clicking and by halftime they had found the nets three times to take a 3-0 lead. The second half saw the Vikings...
...get on the scoreboard with a goal that was quickly answered on Grant’s end. TC scored again and once again the Tigers put the margin at 3 as they scored to make it 5-2.
The Vikings put on a rally scoring twice to pull within a goal but the Tiger defense held off the charge and Grant came away with the win.
“Both teams played a very competitive game,” said Tiger Head Coach Ron Wight.
Miguel Cisneros and Dakota Arsenault each notched a pair of goals and Christopher Barendreght booted in the other Grant score. Defender Michael Frey had 33 steals, Albert Macias collected 27 and Colin Margin added 26. Goal keeper Javie Jasso had 7 saves and Luis Corona had 1 save.
The Tigers will make the short trip north on Monday to face the Newaygo Lions.
