Ogemaw Heights Eyes Top Spot as Race for NMSL Title Tightens
OGEMAW HEIGHTS – The race for the Northern Michigan Soccer League Championship is heating up. Ogemaw Heights sits in third place right McBain NMC in second and Gladwin who is in first atop the standings.
Last week’s shutout win over McBain NMC (9-1, 7-1) was the biggest win of the season for third-place Ogemaw Heights (8-2, 7-2).
It will take some help from other teams for Ogemaw Heights to win the league title, but the Falcons said after the big win they feel they have a real shot at another team goal.
“Overall I think what we’re doing now is going to carry us into the end of the season. I mean obviously we’re going to work on things but tonight was a really good total team effort all the way around,” said Ogemaw Heights head boys soccer coach Tom Zaske.
“We’ve got to just push. Push and be better than we have in the past. Especially to get that — we haven’t gotten a regional win. Our goal is to get that first regional win in school history,” said Ogemaw Heights senior Cameron Miller.
After winning the district championship last season, Ogemaw Heights fell to Elk Rapids 3-0 in its first regional game.
The Falcons will take on NMSL opponent Clare (3-6-2) in its next contest on Wednesday, Sept. 22.
