Prep Roundup (10-1-13)

SAULT STE. MARIE-Zack Kendziorski’s goal midway through the second half was enough for the Alpena boys soccer team to come away with a 1-0 victory over Sault Ste. Marie on Tuesday.

Kendziorski’s tally came unassisted on a free kick and helped the Wildcats (5-9-1) snap a four-game skid.

“It was a very physical game, but our goaltender Gray Martin and our defense played well, especially our defenders Mitch Mead, Jacob Gapske, Jacob Kozlowski and Dakota Knechtel,” Tim Storch said.

Alpena plays at Ogemaw Heights on Thursday.
