Photo by Mike Wilson EAST LANSING - The Bad Axe Hatchets got off to a strong start at the Division 4 Regional Tuesday night when Juan Castrillon scored on a breakaway at the17:32 mark in the first half. However, Bloomfield Hills Roeper’s Cam Robinson hit an outside shot with 8:44 to go in the half to tie the score at 1. The score remained tied until, with 23 seconds to go in the game, Roeper’s Jacob Gladney went unchecked in the middle and hit a perfect shot that eeked over the outstretched hands of Hatchet goalie Mitchell Rowland. Bad Axe made a run with the clock winding down and was awarded a corner kick with 15 seconds to go. However, when the sideline ball boy was unable to retrieve the ball the clock expired and Bad Axe’s opportunity was gone.

Coach Adam Sutherland was very disappointed in the series of events at the end of the game, but was very proud of his team and their play.

“We’re creating young men who play the game hard, who play the game the right way,” said Sutherland after the game, “Really happy to see some success; this is a really nice payoff for them (the players) - they are happy kids.”
