Though Calvin Christian generated more opportunities than the Warriors, Mast played strong to keep all shots out of the net as the Warriors and the Squires played to a scoreless 0-0 tie.

At this point in the season, WMC coach Debbie Pekel is looking ahead to navigate a worn down team.

I feel like every high school coach is in a similar predicament where you play so many games with little recovery that you use non-league games to create that time,” said Pekel. 

We have some key players starting to develop nagging injuries and my job is to balance that as best I can. We were able to do a little bit of that tonight against a competitive team.”

Western Michigan Christian (4-4-3, 3-0-1) will take a short rest then be back on Wednesday to battle Manistee in Lakes 8 Activities Conference action.
