MIDLAND — Both Traverse City West and Central were slated to play district soccer games Tuesday in Midland.

Traverse City West got its game in, but Traverse City Central had to turn around after a positive COVID-19 test at the high school canceled all sports through Thursday.

Central head coach Mark Fiegel said he hopes the game can be rescheduled, but "it looks like we're at the mercy of the Health Department now."

West defeated Midland Dow 2-1 Tuesday, while Central had just reached Midland when the news broke and had to head back home without playing its district semifinal.

Gavin Michael scored both goals in the win over Dow (10-6-1), which advanced last Thursday with a 2-1 shootout win over Saginaw Heritage.

Kaden Ales and Colin Blackport picked up assists and Blade Kalbfleisch made three saves.

TC West (18-1-2) moves on the district final, which gets hosted by the winner of TC Central (11-3-3) and Midland (8-3-4). That game is scheduled for Saturday at 1 p.m., pending when TC Central can play again.

As of Tuesday night, Central's result against Midland was "postponed," not a forfeit. Trojans athletic director Zac Stevenson said he'll be working on a reschedule date Wednesday.

SOCCER

TC Christian 6

Grayling 0

The Traverse City Christian Sabres are a game away from shutting out districts.

The Sabres earned a 6-0 win over Grayling in Monday’s district semifinal at the Keystone Soccer Complex, advancing to a district final against Elk Rapids Wednesday.

Henry Reineck scored four goals, and Luke Montney and Preston Jaworski each scored a goal. Marcus Rystak, the Sabres captain, had three assists, while Reineck added one.

TC Christian gave up five goals in their season-opening game to Glen Lake, but allowed just that many against all other opponents in 19 games since.

“We’ve really improved, we keep developing, that’s the key,” first-year head coach Roy Montney said. “We just keep moving forward.”

Two of those five goals, however, were against the Sabres next opponent.

Elk Rapids beat Cheboygan 7-0 Monday night, setting up a neutral-site district final at Boyne Mountain Soccer Complex. The Sabres lost to Elk Rapids 2-0 earlier this season.

Montney called the Elks a good team, but he thinks his team absolutely has a shot.

“Can we control? Yes,” Montney said. “If we play our game, it’s going to be a very good game, no question about that.”

Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. Wednesday.
