Time hasn’t run out on Clay’s boys’ soccer team.

The Eagles are in the midst of a rough stretch, but Coach Justin Guy said the team can still make corrections, get healthy and get on a roll starting now.

“We have a stretch of games where where we can get some wins and get a respectable record, so we can get a decent seed in the tournament,” Guy said. “We’ve competed against some of these teams, even though the scores don’t reflect what we did. I think we will surprise somebody in the tournament. We have the talent and the heart to steal one from somebody.”

The Lake boys’ soccer team is off to a 6-1 start this year, but the team is still in the process of finding leadership and responding to expectations while looking to build toward a tournament run.

“We’re going to have to learn how to handle the pressure at times,” Lake coach Chad Lillich said. “When you’re coming off a 16-1-1 season, you think you’re going to do it again. We’re going to have to understand there will be bumps, but it’s how we respond to it.”

Last year, Lake won the program’s first Northern Buckeye Conference title before falling to state-ranked Ottawa Hills in a sectional final. This year, the team has started 6-1 with its lone loss to Ottawa Hills on Aug. 26.

        On plenty of occasions this season, Oak Harbor junior Jaclyn Wojciechowski has been the best golfer on the course.

        Wojciechowski, who was a district qualifier last year, has been one of the area's top golfers, consistently shooting in the low 40s with scores in the 30s sprinkled in. She leads a club that includes Hannah Genzman, Madison Glaser, Belle Majoy and Delaney Hayes and has helped to revive the program, leading the team to a 9-5 record and a 4-5 mark in the Sandusky Bay Conference as it enters the stretch run of the season.

        Wednesday, Wojciechowski was medalist, shooting a 39 at Oak Harbor Golf Club, as her team defeated Danbury 196-225. She had six pars and three bogeys.
