Wolves 00 Blue Chip Recap:

Friday's Match:

In the first match of 3 at the adidas Blue Chip Showcase.  The 00 Wolves lost a hard fought match against the Chicago Sockers 4-2.  Wolves started sluggishly giving up 2 goals in the first 20 minutes.   Before An inspired group fought back to equalize to start the second half.  A fantastic left footed finish from Tony Yazbeck off a beautiful Jason Warras cross followed by a penalty that Drake Midgley drew and Avery Olson finished to knot the game at two a piece.  The Sockers then regained their advantage and zapped the momentum before scoring a late goal that ended the game 4-2.

Saturday's Match:

In a defensive battle between Michigan wolves and Fc United the game ended in a draw. Wolves carried an large edge in possession, shots and scoring chances but couldn't covert.  Wolves came the closest to breaking the deadlock, Hitting a crossbar in the first half and then nearly scoring on 2 rebounds.  Then, hitting a post in the second half to go with a few other half chances.  However, the wolves couldn't solve United's backline or keeper and the game would end with a 0-0 tie.  Russell Noble made one notable save to keep the shut out intact.

Sundays Match:

The third and final match for the 00 Michigan wolves had them squaring off with SCS united of Pennsylvania. Wolves started strongly in the first half carrying play and breaking SCS down with crisp passing in midfield.  Eventually they went up after a good spell on the left flank ended with a good interchange between Ethan Park and Jason Warras.  Warras then scored the goal off a park pass to put wolves ahead 1-0.  The Wolves ended the half with most of the chances and the better of the play but weren't able to put more distance between them the Pennsylvania East opponent.  The second half was a completely different game.  There was a big wind to deal with and due to sloppy passing and unlucky bounce SCS was able to break through on a  penalty.  The goal seemed to rattle the boys along with a powerful wind and they were never able to regain their grip on the game.  Shortly after the penalty, they conceded a second goal, and the game would end the that way 2-1.

April 22-23 ECNL Recap

on .

This last weekend proved to be a positive start for all the Hawks' teams as they started into the spring portion of their ECNL Spring Season.

The U14 Hawks 03's had no problem dismantling MTA. Both games featured lots of goals, with the Hawks winning 5-0, 5-0 and securing all 6 points and move into first place in the conference.

The U15 Hawks 02's, struggled through a very tough game on Saturday, only a goal by Joyelle Washington in the first half, that would end up proving to be the difference. Sunday was much easier as they scored early and often, winning 5-1 to remain on top of the Midwest Conference table.

The U16 Hawks 01's, lost on a close match on Saturday. MTA got an early goal in the second half to hand the Hawks their first conference loss of the season. The Hawks responded on Sunday with 2 goals by Sydney Kloosterman and 1 by Gabby Tremonti to get the points and remain in first place in the Midwest.

The U17 Hawks 00's, got two big wins as they look to climb into the National Playoff picture. They got all 6 points with a 1-0 win on Saturday on a goal by Kelsey Adams and then an easy 5-0 win with 3 goals by Michelle Cooper.

The U18 Hawks 99's, had the featured night game on Saturday night. In a game that featured over 300 fans 8 goals and two U20 National Team players, the Michigan Hawks prevailed in a very exciting 5-3 win. Superb goalkeeping by Maya Bellomo and goals by 5 different Hawks, Lexxe Lipsey, Maddy Wolfbauer, Izzy Rodriguez, Maggie Samanich and Maddie Myers made for a great night for all that attended. Video of the game. Sunday's game had less fans and less goals but still ended in a Hawks' win, 2-1, with goals from Maddy Wolfbauer and a extra time winner by Maddie Myers. With the points, the 99s qualified for the National Championship playoffs and will have a chance to repeat as National Champions!!!
