HOW IT HAPPENED

Jordan Miller put Adrian on the board in the 27th minute of the game when he scored off an assist from Dolan Bonkowski to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead over the Scots.

The Bulldogs held Alma to only four shot attempts in the first half, one of which was on goal and saved by Adrian keeper Spencer Brown (W, 5-2-2), and kept the Scots scoreless in the first.

Adrian continued to pressure the Alma defense in the second half, but the Alma defense prevented an insurance score by the Bulldogs. Much like the first half, Adrian only allowed the Scots to have one shot on goal in the second in the shutout.
