Alpena rallies past Cadillac

CADILLAC–Aidan Day scored twice and the Alpena High boys soccer team rallied past Cadillac on Thursday, defeating the Vikings 3-2 in a Big North Conference game.

Cadillac scored six minutes into the contest to take an early lead, but two quick goals from Day and another from Caleb Burger gave Alpena a 3-1 lead at halftime.

All three goals were unassisted.

Lawson Labean made eight saves for the Wildcats (10-9-1, 2-7 Big North) who earned their second win over the Vikings this season.

“Our keeper and back line played well. It was a good character win for us and good for the 14 players on the field,” Alpena coach Tim Storch said. “It shows we can play with anybody when we don’t self destruct.”

Cadillac scored again with about 20 minutes to go on a free kick to make it 3-2.
