The Michigan Premier Soccer Club’s U19HI team captured the WSSL Division 2 title this fall going undefeated with one draw against a tough Garden City Express team. Coached by Hilal “Al” Ismail and Brian Fitzgerald, the team welcomed seven new players ranging from freshmen to juniors after graduating eight players last year. Senior captain and GK Audrey Dorman provided superior leadership while only giving up five goals. She was joined by fellow seniors Kathryn Driscoll, Hayley Clock and Haley Wagner in mentoring the new players. Club Director Piotr Westwalewicz praised the team’s resiliency and ability to play the MPSA Way with a focus on possession, creativity and defense, and last year’s team for setting a high standard of teamwork.
The team was one of four MPSA units entered into the high school open divisions, where the U19AW team captured a share of the Division 3 championship and the U19MF and U19PW finished second and tied for third in Division 1 respectively. Go Crush and go WSSL!
