LIVONIA, MIâ€“ On two separate occasions, the Ancilla soccer team had defeated Schoolcraft College, but in the quarterfinals of the NJCAA Region XII Tournament, the Ocelots were victorious over the Chargers. Losing by a score of 2-0, Ancilla soccer had their season ended, just one game after winning the Michigan Community College Athletic Association conference championship.
In a physical match up, Schoolcraft scored in the 28th minute and maintained the 1-0 lead through the first half. Ten minutes into the second half, the Ocelots added another goal to their lead, while Ancilla was unable to answer with a goal of their own.Â Â
â€śThis was a tough game for our team and we played well, unfortunately it didnâ€™t end in our favor. We can return home proud of our MCCAA championship and work to go farther next season,â€ť reflected Charger coach Adam Hall.
Ancilla finishes the season with a 10-8 record, recording the most wins in a season in school history.
