The Muskegon HS Boys Soccer Team was back in action Tuesday night visiting the Fruitport Trojans.
Fruitport had the bulk of the possession early in the first half, and were able to capitalize on a pair of goals around the midpoint of the half. Muskegon fought back, scoring a goal of there own when a cross from Diego Godoy landed at the feet of Sebastian Cuevas. Cuevas unleashed a hard shot that was too much for the Trojans keeper to handle as it trickled into the goal. Fruitport held a 2-1 lead at halftime.
The second half remained scoreless for the first 35 minutes, with Muskegon getting few chances at the equalizer. Fruitport was finally able to put the game away with 5 minutes remaining. They would hold on for the 3-1 victory.
“I told my guys at halftime, I didn’t recognize the team I was coaching” commented Muskegon Coach Jeff Holmes. “We were playing fantastic soccer, finally playing to the level we’re capable of. We’re such a young team, it’s like a JV team facing Varsity every time out. I’m proud of the work these players have put in recently, and I hope it serves as a motivator to the players of what they are capable of. If they continue to play this way, we’ll have a great next few years ahead of us.”
Muskegon will finish the season on Thursday when visiting GR Union.
