Senior Lindsey Adams boosted her team with three goals last week.

The three goals came as a result of scoring one goal per game as the Clarkston Girls Varsity Soccer team beat Andover, 3-0, and Oxford, 2-0, and lost to Waterford Mott, 5-1.

During the Lady Wolves home game against Oxford last Thursday, both teams remained at zero on the board.

Junior Pearl Brochu passed the ball to Adams. Adams took the chance and made a shot on goal with 14:44 left in the first half. Her shot went past Oxford's goalie and put Clarkston on the board.

Adams kept Mott from scoring a shutout with her goal in the first half on Friday night.

Adams signed her letter of intent on Feb. 7 to continue her soccer career at University of Indianapolis after she graduates in June.

"I am really excited," Adams said. "I have played soccer my entire life. To move on to the college level is really exciting."

She verbally committed to the college last August after talking to the coaches and attending one of their camps.

"They were all really nice and welcoming," she said. "I felt like I would fit in really well down there."

"We are excited," said mom, Kelly. "She has worked all her life playing soccer. She always wanted to play while she was in college. It is exciting to see her dream come true."

Adams was split between secondary education and a history major or study health to become a nutritionist or dietitian.

Catch the team April 26 as they host Soccer Youth Night, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Free entry for kids wearing soccer jerseys, plus half-time Soccer Shootout.
