The Bobcats had five different players score, including Justen Sales, Jeron Body, James cook, Muaz Asperger and Bohdan Boers. Asperger had two assists, while Shea Connor and Keegan Hobson had one each.

“Our defense of Keegan Hobson, Andrew Holley, Blake Peterson and Ryan Raybuck played very well limiting Carman to just two shots the entire game,” said Grand Blanc coach Greg Kehler. “Jacob Whitmore and Jack Anderson shared time in goal for the shutout.”

Last Thursday, Grand Blanc took down an undefeated Goodrich with a 4-1 win. Gavin Miller found the net first on an unassisted goal. Quincy Blake, Body and Boers added a goal each. Body, Hobson and Miller each added an assist.

Last Wednesday’s game against Utica Ford was canceled due to the heat and will be rescheduled.

Grand Blanc, 8-4, hosts Davison at 7 p.m. today. – K.R.

GOODRICH: The Martians tied 0-0 with Pontiac Notre Dame Prep on the road Tuesday.

Last Thursday, Goodrich fell 4-1 to Grand Blanc on the road.

The Bobcats shot out ahead with a three-goal performance in the first half to take a commanding lead. In the second half, Goodrich scored its first goal of the contest thanks to Trevor Taylor on an assist from Ben Flotemersch late in the game, but Grand Blanc also added one to its total in the half to secure the win.

“Overall, it was a good contest for us to find where we are on the measuring stick,” said Goodrich coach Evan Huizenga. “It was good for us to see a high-level team so that we are able to correct our flaws, learn from them and get better every day moving forward. We can easily credit the Bobcats for their solid play and precision. They made dangerous plays and benefited from quality scoring chances that they created. They earned our respect.”

Goodrich, 5-1-1, is at Fenton tonight at 6:15 p.m. – A.V.
