Listen live online Monday around 6:30 p.m. on the Slocum Sports Network to high school boys soccer with the Lakeview Spartans hosting the Kalamazoo Central Maroon Giants. It will be the first Southwestern Michigan Athletic Conference (SMAC) and East division match for both squads.
The last two meetings between these schools were decided by one goal. Last season, Lakeview earned a 2-1 road victory. In 2015, the Maroon Giants grabbed a 3-2 win in Battle Creek.
Kalamazoo Central returns both of their 1st-team All-SMAC East selections from 2016. Ryan Halloran is back for his senior campaign with Paulo Alcala set for his sophomore year. The Maroon Giants also return honorable mention Dailon Brown, who is splitting team captain duties with Halloran. Lakeview returns one of their four 2016 1st-team players with senior defender Patrick Thang, along with honorable mention choice Chris Singh.
