Mona Shores Sailors boys soccer team captures OK Black title

Local Sports Journal

The host Mona Shores Sailors secured exclusive claim Wednesday night to the OK Black Conference boys soccer title, downing Zeeland East 1-0.

But it wasn’t exactly easy.

The match progressed scoreless into an overtime period, where Shores’ Christian Zurchauer goaled the game winner off a cross from teammate Grant Forterbaucher.

Sailor goalkeeper Joey Wolffis nabbed his 13th shutout, a new school record, and has allowed just four goals in 17 games. The Sailors are now 15-1-1 overall and 9-0 in the conference.

One day earlier, Wolffis turned back five shots to first break the school shutout record, in a 3-0 victory over Kenowa Hill. The Sailors bombarded the Knight defense with 15 shots-on-goal, as Jake DeRemer, assisted by Jeremy Szost, and Jacob Carlson, assisted by Nate Hoover, recorded first-half goals, followed up a second half score by Nate Majeski, assisted by Carlson.
