Detroit Catholic Central's Evan Haeger runs during a soccer game against Chippewa Valley on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2022.

Can the Shamrocks find the finishing touch?

Detroit Catholic Central coach Dan Anderson didn’t give too long a speech after the game following a 20-16 Week 1 loss to Clinton Twp. Chippewa Valley.

“We have to play for all four quarters,” he told them.

Thanks to a 65-yard rushing touchdown by Evan Haeger, a 40-yard field goal by Jake Matigian and an 18-yard TD reception by QB Beau Jackson’s DJ Lee, the Shamrocks took a 16-6 halftime lead. .

Coming out of the locker room, Big Reds coach Scott Merchant looked as low as he could get.

And then the momentum changed.

Kameron Lloyd blew up a 57-yard run. It would have been a 58-yard TD. But as he was about to cross the goal line, Chippewa Valley’s Kaelin Shaw stripped the ball naked and forced a touchback as the ball rolled out the back of the end zone.
