Senior night was everything it should have been; Ceremonies went smoothly, the weather was great, and Saline played great in their 1-1 tie against AA Pioneer.
The majority of the game featured strong defensive play on both sides, especially the play of goalkeeper Kyler Jacobs. The senior made tons of saves the whole game, including a penalty kick.
The first goal of the game came at 23:20 by Kevin Souders from an accurate corner kick from Mark Sulavik. This seemed to secure a Hornet victory, but proved to be not enough. Pioneer responded to Saline’s goal with an incredible 25-yard lift over Saline goalkeeper Kyler Jacobs to make the score 1-1.
The JV beat Pihi 3-0.
Besides the allowed goal in the second half, the Hornets showed that they could easily beat Pioneer tonight in the first round of districts. Kickoff is at 7 PM at Pioneer, so bring your family and friends as we cheer Saline through what should be a great start to the state tournament.
