TRAVERSE CITY — Traverse City Christian played its way back into a game it trailed by two goals.

Then Elk Rapids shut the door.

Terran Peterson's goal from 18 yards out on a Landen Knight cross gave Elk Rapids the lead for good in a 3-2 win Tuesday over the Sabres on Championship Field at the Keystone Soccer Complex.

Elk Rapids (9-2-2) led 2-0 at halftime on goals by Preston Ball (unassisted) and Mason Travis (from Drake Collins).

"We switched off and they scored two goals to tie it," Elk Rapids head coach Nate Plum said. "But we came back. Sometimes you have to win those ugly games."

Marcus Rysztak scored Christian's first goal and assisted the second with a cross to Nathan Mustard. The Sabres used both Patrick Gallagher and Kobe Kolarevic in goal.

The Elks (9-2-2, 4-0 Lake Michigan Conference) host Grayling at 6 p.m. Thursday, while TC Christian (5-2-1) plays in Saturday's Alpena Invitational.
