IMLAY CITY: The Spartans were edged out 3-2 by Rochester Hills Stoney Creek on Tuesday. The game started fast-paced, strong and physical, according to Imlay City coach Luis Hernandez.

Neither team scored until the final two minutes of the first half when Stoney Creek grabbed a 1-0 lead heading into intermission.

At 22:24 in the second, Stoney Creek took a 2-1 lead. About eight minutes later, Imlay City’s Alfredo Rodriguez found the net on a cross from Omar Cardenas, but Stoney Creek answered almost immediately, scoring just a minute later. The Spartans then cut Stoney Creek’s lead to just one with 1:54 left in the game when Cardenas rippled the mesh, assisted by Alejandro Zepeda. Victor Galindo had 10 saves in net.

“The final two minutes were all Spartans, but it wasn’t enough,” added Hernandez. “We had them against the ropes, but could not get the equalizer in time.”

LAKEVILLE: The Falcons set aside Durand 3-1 Tuesday.

LakeVille led 3-1 at the half. Durand tried to erase the deficit in the second half with a goal, but fell short as time expired.

“Goalkeeper Kohl Jobson played the entire game with 23 saves, four of them coming from the same play,” said LakeVille coach Krista Daniels.

LakeVille’s first goal was scored by Sam Selesky at left wing. The second came from Mathis Schneider, center midfield. The game-winner was a penalty kick completed by Chris Mims. Zane Lloyd had two shots, senior Austin Williams added two and Kory Knickerbocker attacked offensively with four shots. Lloyd and Mims had four steals each and Schneider had five.
