It was a rough week for Orchard Lake St. Mary’s, as the Eaglets lost and drew a tie in two matches last week.
St. Mary’s began the week at home with a 5-3 loss to Dearborn Divine Child on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
Senior midfielder Kyle Richards scored the Eaglets’ first goal with an assist from junior Brandon Fagnani. Striker Mavis Gappy also scored a goal on a header from a cross by freshman Jonathon Stoneback.
Richards then scored his second goal on a penalty kick.
The Eaglets then traveled to Macomb Lutheran North on Friday, Sept. 30 and played to a 1-1 draw.
Fagnani scored unassisted in the second half for the Eaglets, who are now 4-7-1 overall and 2-6-1 in the Catholic League.
“After suffering through the past several week with players nursing various injuries, Friday’s game was the first time in five games that the entire team was back as a unit,” said St. Mary’s Head Coach Joe Ruffolo.
The Eaglets hosted Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard on Tuesday, Oct. 4 after press time and will welcome Summit Sports Academy on Thursday, Oct. 6.
At the end of Thursday’s game, St. Mary’s will be honoring its seniors and their parents.
The Eaglets’ seniors are defender Dillon Attisha, goalkeeper Alex Brown, Gappy, midfielder Dustin McAllister, and Richards.
