Chelsea soccer in hunt for league championship

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Michael Zivsak for the information in this story.)

Chelsea boys soccer had two hard fought games on Thursday night.

The varsity squad had a strong showing against a visiting Ypsilanti team.

Bulldog defenders held Ypsi to 2 shots on goal while the offense tallied 6 goals in a shutout effort.

After the game, Coach Jordan Miller said, “The team is building in a really positive direction. Ypsi has some great players and we worked very effectively as a team to shut them down in our defensive half and connect to make scoring chances in theirs. I am proud of how the boys played smart soccer with high intensity.” Chelsea is in a position to compete for the league championship and has big games next week.

The JV team came up a bit short against Tecumseh. Despite near-constant pressure applied by our Bulldog offense in the second half, they could not erase a first half deficit of 2 goals.

The defense came alive in the second half and allowed the offense to put 8 shots on goal but none would find the net before the final whistle.

Please come out to support the team against rival Dexter at home Sept. 26. JV kickoff at 4 and varsity at 5:30.
