5 out of the 7 goals on the night for FHC were scored by seniors, fitting for a dominant last home game for the 13 seniors on the boys varsity soccer team as FHC defeated the Ottawa Hills Bengals 7-0 on Senior Night. Big goals came from seniors Kai Hagadorn, Ryan Collins, and Nathan Hartline.

“We had a goal to come out with the personnel that we have,” Head coach Caleb Postlewait said. “We have 13 seniors this year, and it’s going to be hard to replace them next year. But we knew if we came out and played a good game that we could put them away.”

The game started with FHC easily getting into Bengal territory and getting early shots on goal. Kai led the charge offensively and helped the rest of the offense fill in by scoring the first goal of the game. His goal was followed by a penalty kick goal from none other than junior Sammy Postlewait. Sammy would score later in the second half, and he totaled the most goals on the night for FHC.

Senior Alec Norris would tap in a goal only 40 seconds into the second half, which was the start of a 5-goal second half for the Rangers. In that half, Sammy would score his second goal of the night, Ryan Collins scored his first of the night, and Nathan Hartline scored his first goal of the season.

“After the first half we really came out strong,” junior goalie Kyler Williams said. “We just really started exploiting the other team’s weak points.”

This win puts FHC at 10-4-1 on the season. The Rangers travel to Grand Haven Saturday to take on the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers pose a challenge on both sides of the ball and should be a good challenge for the Rangers before a big game against FHN next Tuesday.
