FERNDALE over Seaholm, 3-2
Ferndale scored three unanswered goals in the second half against Seaholm on Thursday at home to win a key Oakland Activities Association Blue matchup 3-2.
The Maples came out of the gate looking really sharp. They were trying to avenge a 1-0 loss from earlier in the season against the Eagles.
“They really took it to us in the first half,” Ferndale coach Mike Kuznair said. “We like to push the ball and they were stopping us. I thought we were a little nervous in the first half and we needed to get more aggressive.”
In the second half, Kelsey Wilson started to turn things around for the Eagles with a goal on a direct kick from about 30 yards out.
Ferndale’s leading scorer Lexie Brisson-Fast gave her team a lead with back-to-back goals.
Her second goal put the Eagles ahead 3-2 with about 15 minutes to go in the game. She stole the ball on the wing and pushed it up the field. The senior scored on what her coach called a “beautiful shot.”
“We didn’t panic,” Kuznair said. “That was the first time we really faced adversity in the first half. Instead of letting us effect us, we pulled together and had a great half.
Ferndale is now 9-2-1 overall and 7-0-1 in the Blue. Seaholm is 5-3-1 and 3-2-1 in the Blue.

ATHENS over Adams, 4-1, 5-1
Patch Athlete of the Week nominee Haley Zemmer was at it again on Wednesday in a doubleheader at home against Adams.

In the second game, Athens (8-3; 4-0 OAA White) didn’t have a cushion until it scored two runs in the seven inning. Adams threatened a couple of times and Zemmer had to work her way out of trouble.

Emmit came up to bat later in the inning with the bases loaded. He put his team ahead 6-4 with a grand slam over the left field fence.

The Ferndale senior scored three more goals on Monday night in a 4-2 win over Harrison to keep her team undefeated in the Oakland Activities Association White at 6-0-1 (8-2-1 overall).
“She’s incredible,” Eagles coach Mike Kuznair said. “She’s our go-to player and she’s certainly developing a knack for putting the ball in the net. She’s taking on two or three defenders at a time and still scoring. She’s staying patient and very focused.”
Brisson-Fast now has 22 goals in 11 games for Ferndale. Her three goals Monday pushed her career total to 80. She also assisted on a goal from Molly Breen-Bondie.
“They played a very physical game, but we didn’t let it affect our play,” Kuznair said.
The game was tied 2-2 at halftime and with the wind at their backs, the Eagles scored two unanswered goals in the second half.
