REETHS-PUFFER HIGH SCHOOL: 1
The Dux JV soccer team made their second trip to Muskegon this week, earning a hard fought 1-1 draw against Reeths Puffer. Micah Henry scored the lone goal for the Dux in the first half. Brayan Alonzo cut the ball back on the right side at the top of the penalty box and crossed the ball to Sam DiLaura. DiLaura beat a defender before slipping the ball in to Henry for the goal. Less than 10 minutes into the second half, Reeths Puffer got the equalizer.
"We played well enough to win tonight against a solid Reeths Puffer team. We possessed the ball well and moved the ball from flank to flank much better than we did on Tuesday against Mona Shores. Unfortunately, we continue to struggle in the final third - finding that final pass, cutting the ball back or taking one too many touches near goal. The energy and effort were solid, and our defensive back four managed their speed up top and counterattacking direct style of play reasonably well all night. Not the result we were hoping for, but we continue learning and growing as a team."
Lucas Smith made 7 saves in net for the Dux. The Dux are 3-1-1 on the season.
