The Fruitport Trojans will be vying for their first Division 2 boys soccer district title thanks to Thursday’s 4-0 victory over Kenowa Hills.
Fruitport will take on Spring Lake at noon Saturday at the home of the Lakers. Spring Lake is undefeated and ranked No. 1 in Division 2.
On Thursday, the Trojans scored all four of their goals in the opening half.
Colin Sparks opened the scoring at the 21:12 mark of the first half by scoring on a penalty kick.
Sparks’ corner kick 10 minutes later also found the back of the Kenowa Hills’ net.

In the latter stages of the half, Fruitport received two goals by Zach Gilson. The first came on a shot from 20 yards out. The assist went to Dalton Mullenix.

Three minutes later, Gilson scored after a scramble in front of the Kenowa Hills net. Taylor McLaughlin drew the assists.

Fruitport had a 14-6 advantage in shots with goalkeeper Loghan Stong making four saves.

“The entire team is playing beautiful soccer and we are having a lot of fun,” Fruitport coach Greg Kobylak said. “We didn’t score in the second half, but we were more concerned about ending the game without any injuries. We are excited and confident heading into our next game – it should be another classic.”
