For the sixth time this season, the DHS soccer team tied a game, the most recent tie coming last night in a 2-2 tie with Flint Powers Catholic. The Chargers were winning 2-1, but a red card followed by a successful penalty kick ended the match in a draw.
“All the ties have been frustrating,” junior Shane Huisman said. “Especially because we know we can play better, but we’ve started to pick up momentum heading into districts.”
Juniors Brandon Derstine and Nick Coon scored for DHS. Derstine’s goal gave the Chargers a 1-0 lead, and Coon’s goal gave the team a 2-1 advantage at the time.
The Chargers played the final 14 minutes of the second half without a player, due to a red card on senior Ethan Loftis.
The Chargers begin district play next Monday against Bay City Central, a team that DHS mercied 8-0 in their only regular season meeting. The game is at Bay City Central.
“We think this is obviously a winnable game,” Huisman said. “Hopefully we take care of business and move on to the next round.”
