Prep Roundup (9-9-13)

HARBOR SPRINGS-The Alpena boys soccer team battled back from an early deficit to earn a 2-2 tie with Harbor Springs on Monday.

Alpena (2-5-1) fell behind 2-0 in the first 15 minutes of the game before Kyle Supiran scored his first career goal to put Alpena on the board. Willie Santos Perez earned an assist.

Peter Guest scored the tying goal in the second half with an assist from Mitchell Day.

“Sometimes, there’s good ties and there’s bad ties. On paper this was a bad tie because this is a team we should have handled,” Alpena coach Tim Storch said. “When we started to employ all our players, we had periods of dominance, but we didn’t do that enough. It was a little bit of a mixed bag for us.”

Alpena hosts Ogemaw Heights at 5 p.m. tonight.
