Alcona soccer team beats Saginaw Nouvel

SAGINAW — The Alcona soccer team earned a huge victory on Tuesday defeating Saginaw Nouvel on the road by a score of 5-2.

The Tigers were led by Jordan Steiner who recorded a hat trick scoring three goals. Brett Nelson and Josh Kilbourn each added a goal apiece in the victory.

Alcona goalkeeper Conner McCoy turned in another impressive evening in net as he made 25 saves.

The Tigers held a 3-1 halftime lead and didn’t look back as they knocked off an opponent that they will see later down the road during district play.

“It was a very good win for us. To play and beat a district opponent is always great because we didn’t get the chance to see anyone from our district during the regular season last year. It was a great win for us,” Alcona coach Tim Munro said.

The Tigers improve to 3-5-1 with the win and will be back in action on Tuesday when they travel to Kalkaska.
