Gaylord 1, Alpena 0
GAYLORD-Gaylord's goal with nine and a half minutes remaining in the game was enough to send the Blue Devils by the Alpena girls soccer team on Friday.
"The girls showed a lot of heart and tenacity. We were shorthanded due to some injuries and some of the bench players really stepped up," Alpena coach Tim Storch said.
The loss was the fourth straight Big North Conference loss for Alpena (3-6, 1-4 BN).
Alpena will host Petoskey tonight at 7 p.m.
