PCA Downs Clarenceville 1-0
CANTON, MI (October 15, 2020) – The fall winds began to blow this afternoon, but that didn’t cool off the Eagles as they topped visiting Livonia Clarenceville, 1-0.

PCA controlled the pace of the play throughout the game but found the net only once. Weertz had a golden opportunity late in the half, but his shot hit the crossbar.
Goalie Dillon Morby made a sparkling save early in the contest to keep the score at 0-0.
The second half saw no scoring, but Bobby Dotson had a great chance midway through, but could not get a strong shot away.
PCA dominated the second half as well – they controlled the ball and tackled wisely.
