Hartland earned a spot in the regional finals this Saturday by defeating Grand Blanc in round two of the playoffs Tuesday night at Lake Orion High School. Final score: 15-7.

Leading 7-5 at the half, Hartland outscored Grand Blanc 8-2 in the second half of the match-up. This is the third time this season that Hartland beat Grand Blanc.

Ryan Skomial led Hartland with five goals — including a nifty behind-the-back shot late in the game. Scoring two goals each were Haley Crouse, Courtney Lee, Taylor Pryde and Rachel Sharpe. Annie Quinn and Natalie Sochacki added one goal each.

Senior captain and goalkeeper, Kelsey Lavalley, was absolutely amazing in goal for Hartland. Kelsey stopped 26 Grand Blanc shots!

Hartland will face league foe Brighton on Saturday for the Regional Finals as Brighton beat Clarkston earlier today, 17-10. The game starts at noon Saturday back at Lake Orion High School.
