Fenton scored three goals in the second half to complete the comeback.

“Fenton got a penalty kick and from there on out they completely took over and crushed us in the second half,” said Andy Rishmawi, Flushing coach.

Bryn Butler and Brooklyn Thuma each rippled the mesh once.

Flushing tied Goodrich 0-0 last Thursday. AC Fox had four saves in net.

“The game was controlled a lot by us, but our defense of Brooke Butler, Josie Wilette, Katie Varney, Emma Bentley, Julia Hagler, Brooklyn Grissom and Ashley Whaley again played well to earn another shutout,” Rishmawi said.

Last Wednesday, Flushing saw another 0-0 tie, this time against Midland. Aubrey Marsh recorded four saves in net with the help of the Raiders’ solid defensive front.

“Play was good both ways and I thought we controlled a lot of the ball,” Rishmawi added.

Flushing was at Clio on Wednesday and hosts Kearsley Monday. — K.R.
