Goal in Final Minutes Propels McBain NMC to 1-0 Win Over Clare

McBAIN – Brant Winkle’s goal with just over a minute left broke a scoreless tie and propelled McBain Northern Michigan Christian to a crucial 1-0 victory over Clare on Wednesday night.

The win elevates the Comets to the top spot in the Northern Michigan Soccer League West Division standings.

The two teams played to a scoreless tie in their meeting earlier this year. It appeared headed for a similar result in round two before Winkle redirected a shot by Logan Hart past the Pioneers keeper for the game-winner in the final minutes.

McBain Northern Michigan Christian will test themselves with a non-conference matchup at Traverse City Christian on Monday.  Clare will look to get back on track when they host Shepherd on Monday night.
