Boyne City Falls in State Championship Against Detroit Country Day

EAST LANSING — Boyne City made its first appearance in the state championship in girls soccer on Friday, but the Ramblers couldn’t bring home the title, losing to Detroit Country Day, 3-0.

“We worked really hard for this and spent lots of hours training and our community as supported us all the way through it,” Boyne City senior Jordan Noble said.

The Ramblers didn’t see many great opportunities to score in the game, recording just one shot in the game.

Detroit Country Day found the net in the first half on a goal by Calihan Bearden on a penalty kick at the 29:49 mark. Both goals in the second half came from Madison Salzenstein.

“Probably the grittiest group of players I have ever gotten to work with. Just a no-die attitude and they are what got us here. We need to walk off that feel knowing that we accomplished what we did and that to me is the most important of everything,” Boyne City coach Ed Fantozzi said.

Boyne City ends its season with a 21-2-2 record, while accomplishing one of the most successful seasons in program history.
