ALLENDALE — Ludington’s boys soccer team won its seventh straight game, shutting out Allendale, 3-0 in a non-league match on the road Saturday afternoon.

The Orioles, ranked No. 13 in Division 2, figured on getting a good test against the Falcons, whose three losses coming in were to Unity Christian and Holland Christian, two of the top teams in Division 3, and Division 2 power Spring Lake.
Ludington scored its first goal about seven minutes into the game, and the next came six minutes later.
“We scored two goals relatively early on them in the first half, which is huge,” said Orioles head coach Kris Anderson. “Scoring early is important, because that makes it an uphill battle for the other team.
“It was a game that we knew was going to give us an idea of where we’re at. We rose to the challenge, played well and accomplished what we wanted to accomplish. A good, solid game for us all around.”
Spencer Holmes had two of Ludington’s goals, both of which came in the first half, and Parker Wendt tallied the third goal 12 minutes into the second half as the Orioles out-shot the Falcons, 13-11.
Yebe Boerema had two assists.
Connor Rudzki started and played the whole game in net for the Orioles, finishing with 11 saves.
“He made the saves he needed to make, and on some of them our defense was making it challenging (for the Falcons) so they were shots he could easily see, be in position and be ready for,” Anderson said.
The Orioles (13-1-1) next host Fremont in a West Michigan Conference-Lakes contest at home on Monday night.
