Agony of defeat: HL beats Clare and Pinny before finale
By Clint Kern
The Lady Bobcats met their match against a big, physical and well oiled Tawas Braves soccer machine in the district finals, losing 4-0. The weather was cold and rainy, the ball and field were slick, these elements favor a bruising, power team more than they do a team based on speed and fluid skills such as Houghton Lake. Tawas was crisper with their passing and their spacing was better. The Cats never seemed to capture their gusto, they appeared to be out of synce.
