Fremont’s boys soccer team is on the cusp of a West Michigan Conference title.

With a 4-1 home win over Whitehall on Monday, Fremont put itself in position to capture at least a share of the conference championship.

Fremont (15-1-1 overall) is 7-1-1 in the WMC, tied atop the standings with North Muskegon, which defeated Ludington 2-1 on Monday. Ludington is lurking in third place at 7-2-0.

On Wednesday, Fremont visits Manistee, North Muskegon heads to Montague, and Ludington hosts Shelby in three intriguing matches that should settle the conference-title race.

In Monday’s win over Whitehall, Deagan Klimek got Fremont on the board on an assist by Redick Powell 10 minutes into the game. Whitehall answered when Evan Jud connected with Mason Mulnix with six minutes remaining in the first half.

Fremont took the lead for good eight minutes into the second half when Chaz Miller found Klimek. Four minutes later, Miller assisted Silas Rinne. The Packers put it away with nine minutes left on a goal by Powell.

Fremont outshot Whitehall, 15-6. Packers keeper Caleb Vissia made five saves, while Vikings keeper Andon Palmer made 11 stops.

Whitehall is 6-8-0 overall and 5-4-0 in the WMC. The Vikings close out the conference season Wednesday night with a home game against Ravenna.
