Lansing Catholic High School
An MHSAA Regional first round game saw Holt High School traveling to Waverly High School for a match up of CAAC foes on Friday night. The Warriors are seeded third in their region while Holt was seeded 6th. The Warrior jumped off to a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals by Anthony Stone off a nice feed by Jake Roberts. Roberts scored his only goal of the game 3 minutes later off a pass by Noah Usiak. It was more of the same in the second period as the Warriors scored twice more on goals by Everett Thomas and Santiago Diaz (ass’t by Stone) giving the Warriors a 4-0 half time lead. A much improved Holt team came to life in the third scoring two goals but Ezra Leppanen got his first of the night and Thomas added #2 give his team a 6-2 lead going into the 4th quarter. Thomas scored twice more before Griffin Hotchkiss scored to secure the 9-4 victory for the home team.
Next game action for the Warriors will be Wednesday, May 24 at Parker MIddle School in Howell, MI. Game time will be 7 pm vs South Lyon Unified, the #2 seed in Region 2. See you there!
