Soccer roundup: WMC blanks Norsemen in battle of state-ranked teams

In a battle of two state-ranked Division 4 teams, host Western Michigan Christian scored early and late Wednesday night for a 2-0 win over North Muskegon. The Warriors, rated No. 6 in the state, raised their season mark to 3-1-1. WMC outshot the 10th-ranked North Muskegon, 30-4, but had trouble connecting with the twine. The Warriors got on the board six minutes into the game when sophomore Alex Rop fired a throw-in to senior Zach Meyers, who sent it past the keeper.
