In the last game of the season, the team came ready to play. Mac jumped out to an early 2-0 lead off goals by Isaac Lorenz and Lacey Freeman. Before the end of the half, Nolan Jones scored with an assist from Isaac Lorenz, but N. Miami was able to get on the scoreboard with a long shot into the wind that just squeezed past the Mac goalie. In the second half, Jackson Jones dribbled past the defense and goalie to hit the net. The second goal for N. Miami came from a corner kick in which an errant header by a Mac player accidentally went into our own goal. To finish the night, Micah Hyde scored his first goal of the season with a shot from the left side after a beautiful assist from Isaac Lorenz.
This game closes out the Mac Middle Soccer season. The team ended the year 13-3-1 and showed amazing improvement from the beginning of the year to the end.
