Owosso High School
Corunna High School
Owosso Trojans Boys Soccer defeated their rival Corunna Cavaliers 3-0. Owosso outshot Corunna 19-5 in a dominant performance. Keeper Brendan Ihm recorded his ninth shutout of the season as the Trojans improved to 9-6-2 on the season.
Owosso controlled play for most of the game and scored when Michael Snow buried a rebound off of a great shot by Sam Roose in the 31st minute.
Eight minutes later in the 39′ Parker Omer curled a beautiful corner kick that came out to Nolan Thews-Aguirre. Nolan buried the shot in the upper left corner with a well placed left footer.
Gilby Lentz had a great opportunity on a free kick just inside the box but Owosso’s keeper Ihm made a great diving save on Corinna’s best chance to score.
The game went into halftime with Owosso leading 2-0.
In the second half Owosso kept pressing and finally in the 74′ off of a rocket shot by Sam Roose on a free kick outside the box was mishandled by the keeper Colin Drury pounced on the rebound and buried it into the Corunna goal.
Owosso’s defensive line of Trajan Smith, Zach Crane, Parker Omer and Jacob Wood was on point all night and did a great job of helping Brendan Ihm get his 9th shutout of the season.
Owosso hosts Linden next Tuesday at Willman Field.
