Listen live online Wednesday at 6 p.m. on the Slocum Sports Network as the Gull Lake Blue Devils host the Hackett Catholic Irish in boys soccer. It will be the regular season finale for both teams and serve as one last solid test prior to the postseason.
Hackett moved up to the #2 spot in the latest Division 4 Coaches Association poll, their highest mark of the season. At 14-0-3, the Irish secured the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SAC) title with a 4-1 win over Fennville Monday, giving them a perfect 8-0-0 mark against league foes.
Gull Lake sits at 7-8-1 overall, finishing 5-4-1 and sixth in the regular season in a very tough Southwestern Michigan Athletic Conference (SMAC). They won the seventh place tournament game Tuesday over Loy Norrix, snapping a three-game skid. The Blue Devils have had some strong showings, including victories over Kalamazoo Central and Lakeshore (third and fourth in the SMAC), and a draw with SMAC champion Portage Central two weeks ago.
