Petoskey soccer meets 2023 exit in D2 district opener

MOUNT PLEASANT — Over the course of the 2023 season, the Petoskey girls’ soccer team never seemed to shake the struggle of putting the ball into the net. 

It led to multiple scoreless draws and missed opportunities, which ultimately had them on the road to open the postseason.

After Thursday evening in Mount Pleasant, it also had them exiting their 2023 campaign. 

In a match that played out closer to a district final than an opener, a full 80 minutes of effort came up blank for the Northmen in a 1-0 Division 2 district victory for the host Oilers.
