NORTON SHORES — North Muskegon’s girls soccer team defeated Western Michigan Christian 2-0 twice on the Warriors’ home field this season.

The first time, the Norse did it in blizzard-like conditions in the season opener March 24. On Friday, they did it under sunshine and comfortable conditions with a district championship on the line.

Above are several images from the reigning Division 4 state champion Norse’s victory. Here are the details with video highlights and reaction below:

Next game for North Muskegon:

The Norse advance to Tuesday’s 7 p.m. regional semifinal at Cadillac, where they will face the winner of Saturday’s district final between Grand Rapids NorthPointe Christian and Grandville Calvin Christian.


North Muskegon has shut out four straight opponents and seven of the last eight with the lone goal in that stretch coming in a 1-1 tie with Royal Oak Shrine, which the Norse beat in last year’s state finals. The Norse have a dozen shutouts in 18 matches this season.
