Carlos De Macedo tallied the only Kearlsey goal with help from Andy Ruhstorfer. That lead, however, came to a close at 23:50 of the second half when Fenton converted a corner kick. The Tigers would take the lead and then pad it with an insurance goal.

Logal Loyer made 12 stops in net for Kearsley.

The Hornets were at the Ogemaw Heights Invitational on Saturday, opening up with an 8-0 win over Standish Sterling. Ruhstorfer scored four goals in the game. Kearlsey then got a 1-1 draw against Tawas with De Macedo scoring the only goal, assisted by Matt Limon. They were forced to settle the tie in a shootout with Ruhstorfer, De Macedo and Dakota Dohman each scoring while Loyer made a pair of saves in the shootout.

The final game of the day was the title game, which Kearsley lost to Swartz Creek, 3-0.

At home last Thursday, Kearsley suffered its first loss of the season, 2-1, to Lake Fenton. The defensive battle didn’t see a goal until the Blue Devils notched one with 7:15 remaining. Dohman evened things up for Kearsley just 20 seconds later before Lake Fenton got the game winner with 2:45 left in the game.

In net, Logan Loyer turned aside 15 shots as the offense scored on its lone shot on goal.

The Hornets had a big showing at home last Wednesday, trouncing Clio, 5-1. The Mustangs were the first to jump on the board with a successful penalty kick before Doman answered with a goal on a free kick. Kearsley went into the half with a 3-1 advantage after De Macedo buried two goals to end the half.

De Macedo capped off the hat trick with a goal on a penalty kick in the second half and senior Josh Patrick connected from 18 yards out with less than two minutes remaining. Trent Derochers was key on the night, ending the contest with two assists.

Kearsley hosted Brandon on Wednesday, following press deadlines, and hosts Flint today.
