Boys Soccer Districts
Skyline (15-3-3) was able to stave off a second-half comeback by Pioneer to win the district title. Skyline scored two first-half goals and added one in the second half to extend the lead.
Pioneer's Cal Kirchen scored two second-half goals to bring the Pioneers to within one.
Max Amann led Dexter, scoring twice and adding one assist. Bobby Toth had one goal and Nils Valdmanis had one assist in contribution.
Goalkeeper Rhys Moller made seven saves for Dexter.
"In the first half both teams had good possession and good opportunities," Dexter coach Scott Forrester said. "We had a defensive breakdown on our side when our defense tried to tackle the ball away, and South Lyon lofted a pass to an open man and capitalized on it."
Greenhills won the district title with a 1-0 victory over Newport Lutheran South. Payam Dehkhodania headed the ball off a cross into the box during the first half and the Gryphon defense held the shut out.
“We were able to put a lot of pressure on them,” Greenhills coach Lucian Popescu said. “Because we were putting so much pressure on them and possessing the ball so well, we were able to keep them from developing many scoring chances.”
