GRAND LEDGE, Mich (WLNS) – 6 Sports Team of the Week night and this week’s selection finished conference play in soccer not only undefeated but recorded six shutouts during the season and won again last night with a goose egg in the CAAC Gold Cup after aleady winning the regular season title.
Congratulations to the 6 Sports Team of the Week, Grand Ledge Comets boys soccer team.
Yes, the Comets earning their first CAAC Blue title and the nod as our latest Team of the Week.
Grand Ledge is off to an undefeated start and with a win over Holt last week claimed the crown and is now the top seed in the Gold Cup.
Then the Comets beat Jackson 1-nil last night and, according to the players, this year has been a perfect mix of chemistry on and off the field.
The head coach says this is an exciting time for Comet soccer. “Oh, it’s really great we’re having a lot of fun,” says coach Scott Dane. “I think the boys are performing really well on the field, they really like each other it’s a great team camaraderie and it’s been a lot of fun to be around them. It’s been really great just spending time with the guys and being undefeated, it feels good. We don’t go through the season thinking we’re going to be undefeated but shooting to win every game as much as getting better every game, I think the undefeated part has really been an added bonus and I think we’ve taken some great pride in knowing we haven’t lost yet.”
