Photo by Brandon Pope LAPEER – Davison boys’ soccer has tangled with some of the best teams in the area during the regular season and has recorded numerous shutouts. Senior keeper Drew Fleming has been a catalyst to the Cardinals’ success and his supporting cast of veteran seniors that includes Thomas Alband, Darion Ferrell, Mickey Clifford, Zach Simpson, Jacob Thick, Adam Gabriel, Todd Craton and Spencer Schwellenbach have been instrumental in either scoring the goals in those shut outs, or in keeping the opposition from returning the favor. Supporting cast members for Davison include junior Cameron Gouin, Noah Gulledge, Levi Hair, Alex Peariso, Dominic Wendel, Colton Brown and Mathew McDonald.

It’s postseason time and now the Cardinals will vie for a district title with one of the perennial favorites in the mix in Grand Blanc. Host Lapeer also has had a successful year under an equally impressive corps of boys that have played together since the age of 10. That cohesiveness will give fans from all the schools something special to watch at this district.

Hosted by Lapeer (9-4-3), the district includes Grand Blanc (9-7-1), Carman-Ainsworth (2-8), Flushing (6-12-1), Davison (6-3-2), Saginaw Arthur Hill (2-11) and Swartz Creek (6-5). No teams are state ranked.

Tuesday marks the beginning of postseason play with Grand Blanc hosting Saginaw Arthur Hill, Lapeer hosting Carman-Ainsworth and Swartz Creek hosting Flushing. All first-round games are slated for 6 p.m. The semifinals will be held Thursday, October 19, at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. The first game will feature either Grand Blanc or Saginaw Arthur Hill against Carman-Ainsworth or Lapeer while the nightcap will feature either Swartz Creek or Flushing against Davison, which had a first-round bye. The championship game will be held Saturday, October 21, at noon at Lapeer.
