ST. CLAIR SHORES — The St. Clair Shores Lake Shore boys soccer team will have a shot at its third straight Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 2 district title after it took down St. Clair Shores South Lake 8-0 in  2013 MHSAA D-2 district semifinal.

The match took place Oct. 16 at Lake Shore.

The Shorians (12-4-2) advance to face the winner of a matchup between St. Clair High (9-3-5) and Marysville (12-1-6) in a battle set for noon Oct. 19 at Lake Shore.

"I haven't seen (Marysville or St. Clair), but I know both are defensive teams and they're both good teams," Lake Shore coach Dave Lount said. "We're just going to have to finish like we did in the second half."

The Shorians tallied six goals in the first 15 minutes of the second half against the Cavaliers (4-12-0) after notching two in the first half. Lake Shore senior midfielder Josh Scott led the Shorians with three goals in the district semi.

"We fought really hard in the first half," South Lake coach Paul Voydanoff said. "They're a good team. I take my hat off to them and wish them the best of luck."

Lount said he thought his team did a solid job of controlling the ball during the contest, which was called with 25 minutes remaining due to the score. The Lake Shore coach said his team wants to keep winning.

"This is really good group of guys, and they really want to succeed," said Lount, who has led Lake Shore to regional-final appearances in each of the last two years. "Hopefully, our success continues on (during the playoffs)."
