South Lyon girls soccer tied Pinckney and lost to Walled Lake Central last week.
The tie came March 25, a 1-1 decision. Meghan Pfile score off an assist from Rachael Sweigard for South Lyon’s lone goal.
“Wednesday was a step in the right direction as we played to a 1-1 tie with Pinckney,” coach Brian Elliot said. “Our defense started meshing together like we had hoped they would and things are looking up going into this week.”
The loss came a day earlier, a 3-0 decision.
“They had a really talented team and were very well-coached,” Elliot said.
The Lions open division play against powerhouse Northville this week and Elliot wants to see how his girls measure up.
“I’m excited for (this week’s) game against Northville,” he said. “Last year, they mercied us both times we played them, so we definitely know what we’re up against. They have a lot of talent and were the D1 state champs last year and were ranked third in the country.
“I’m curious to see how our girls deal with the adversity and I think how we play will show a lot about our team’s character.”
