State Finals 2017
In a great start to a good day for field hockey both teams came to play. The Forest Hills team from Grand Rapids was the home team. University of Liggett was listed as the visitor. The game was tight with Forest Hills having more offensive corners but unable to convert with good defense from Liggett. Regular time ended with the score tied at 1-1. After Forest Hills starting with the ball in the 7 vs 7 overtime, Forest Hills progressed the ball quickly earning a corner. The first corner was all Forest Hills needed scoring inside the first minute. Well played by both teams a great ending to a very good Division 2 year.
The second game featured the home team Huron vs the visitor from Dexter. The scoring started by the River Rats. Dexter unfazed by the goal came back quickly and scored a goal of their own. The score remained tied through most of the second half. Late in the second half Huron provided the second goal. Dexter again did not give up with the coaches making adjustments to earn the goal back but in the end the goal did not come. Dexter fought with great heart, but Huron proved to be to much as they were all season. Huron wins ending a dream season with no losses.
Congratulations to all four teams You represented Michigan Field Hockey State in an ending to the season we all can be proud of.
