Northern Michigan Christian kicked off its girls’ soccer season with a win in Clare on Friday, topping the Lady Pioneers 3-2 in Northern Michigan Soccer League Southern Division play.

Kylie Lanser scored the games’ first goal off an assist by Anna Shaarda, giving NMC a 1-0 lead at the half.

The Lady Comets pushed their lead to 2-0 early in the second, getting Emily Morgan to assist a goal by Shaarda.

Clare came back to tie it at 2-2 but with eight minutes left to play, Allison Mentel booted in the game-winning goal off a pass from Lanser.

Lauren Eisenga was in goal to earn the win.

NMC (1-0 overall, 1-0 NMSL) had its game at Crossroads on Tuesday canceled and was scheduled to host Cheboygan on Thursday. The Comets resume play at Crossroads on April 22.
