Walled Lake Northern appears to be at the top of its game with two convincing victories last week.
The Knights (5-5-1) began with a 5-0 shutout of Bogie Lake Road neighbor Huron Valley Lakeland on Tuesday, Sept. 11.
Spencer Viksne scored two goals for Northern while Gage Coder, Ricky Carter and Kyle Boulier each found the back of the net.
Goalkeeper Zach Haapala was credited with the clean sheet in net.
Northern then followed up with a 6-0 thrashing of Waterford Kettering at home on Thursday, Sept. 13.
Carter and Connor Rutz each scored two goals while Chris Armstrong and Kyle Knight each also scored a goal.
“I thought we had a good week. We created and finished a lot more opportunities that we have not done until this point,” said Northern Head Coach Chris Stevanovic. “Hopefully this will help us for the coming couple of weeks in division play.”
Northern is the four-time defending champion of the Kensington Lakes Activities Association (KLAA) North Division.
The Knights now currently find themselves tied with Walled Lake Central for first-place in the KLAA North with 10 points each and similar division records of 3-0-1.
Kettering at one point was tied with Northern atop the North Division with 4 points, but then forfeited a 1-0 victory over Central on Sept. 6 due to playing an ineligible player.
The Captains began their week with a 3-1 loss at Walled Lake Western on Tuesday, Sept. 11 and now find themselves winless at 0-5-1 with only one point in KLAA North play.
Northern played at Mott yesterday, Tuesday, Sept. 18, and will host a showdown with Central on Thursday, Sept. 20.
