Ogemaw Heights Hands McBain NMC Its First Loss of Season
MCBAIN – The Ogemaw Heights Falcons topped McBain Northern Michigan Christian 2-0 on Wednesday night behind two goals from Cameron Miller.
Miller scored about midway through each half and the Falcons defense and keeper Ryland McDaniels turned away several good scoring opportunities from McBain NMC down the stretch.
After the game, Miller said this win was a step in the right direction as the team looks to make a deep playoff run.
“We’ve got to just push. Push and be better than we have in the past,” Miller said. “We haven’t gotten a regional win. Our goal is to get that first regional win in school history.”
“Coaches love when kids are coachable and today they were very coachable. They listened and they executed everything to the best of their ability that we talked about all week,” said Ogemaw Heights head coach Tom Zaske. “Moving forward we do play a lot of teams that play a similar offense [to McBain NMC] so it’s good for us in the long run.”
With the win, Ogemaw Heights improves to 7-2 (6-2) on the season. The loss was the first of the season for McBain NMC. At 9-1 (7-1), the Comets are now tied atop the conference with Gladwin. Ogemaw Heights is in third.
