Wendi's Word A column by Wendi Reardon
Support your local Wolf
May 19, 2010 - The stands at Clarkston High School were silent - a still hush of fans watching the lacrosse game between the Wolves and Lake Orion.
Silent until the beginning of the second quarter, when Joe Puertas tied the game.
Clarkston fans were charged – banging their feet against the aluminum, cheering their hearts out to the boys on the field.
Their reward – goals from Sam Bell, Hunter Layson and Jordan Kincaid sealing Lake Orion's doomed fate.
And now another Clarkston team goes against Lake Orion this week - the girls soccer team.
The Lady Wolves have counted down to Thursday's big game since the beginning of the season.
With their highest record, 12-1, to date in the last few years - they have something to prove to the Lady Dragons (10-3-1).
Besides playing a rival - another 21 reasons are the players on the team. The girls work as a team and keep every competitor on their toes especially with Demaree Wells in the net.
But to see is to believe so grab your Blue and Gold gear and head over the Lake Orion soccer field on Thursday night.
Then catch the girls on Friday night when they host Youth Night and play Brandon High School.
