Trevor Taylor and Garret McGuffin scored two goals each to lead the red-hot Goodrich offense that featured goals from six different players on the night.

Joining Taylor and McGuffin was Garrett Doud, Paul Gannon, Hunter Haffner and Owen Clary, who all added one goal apiece. Kyle Fisher and Haffner had two assists each and Cole Petit and Doud each had one assist. Goalie Nolan Robb was in net for the Martians to record the shutout.

Goodrich now sits at 3-0 in the Genesee Area Conference, 3-1 overall. The Martians are at Clio today before heading to Brandon on Monday. – A.V.

GRAND BLANC: The Bobcats fell for the second straight time at home on Thursday with a 2-0 loss to Plymouth Salem. It was a deadlock for almost the entire game, going scoreless for 70 minutes. Salem, however, scored two goals in the final 10 minutes of the contest to take the win.

“We played well at times but need consistency for the entire match, especially against the top KLAA teams,” said Grand Blanc coach Greg Kehler.

Grand Blanc was at Livonia Tuesday but the game details did not reach us in time for our early Wednesday morning press deadline. – B.P.
