Prior to that, it lost at Pontiac, 7-1, after drubbing Mt. Morris 6-3. Now the Hornets enter next week’s postseason, playing in a district with a few teams that are going to be tough to take down.

The district is hosted by Goodrich (11-2) and also includes Clio (1-7), Holly (2-8-1), Owosso (8-4), Flint (0-1), Fenton (4-6-2) and Linden (10- 5-1). Linden is ranked No. 5 in the state in Div. 2, making them the favorite to move on to regionals.

Kearsley will begin the playoffs at home against Flint on Tuesday at 6 p.m. with the winner advancing to play either Fenton or Linden at 5:30 p.m. at Goodrich on Thursday. Clio travels to Goodrich on Tuesday and the winner takes on either Holly or Owosso in the other semifinal at Goodrich on Thursday at 7:15 p.m. The title game is slated for 12 p.m. on Sept. 21.

Andy Ruhstorfer, Dakotah Doman, Carlos DeMacedo, Trent Desrochers, Logan Loyer and Seth Varner have been a few of the pivotal players for Kearsley this season. Kearsley will likely top Flint in the opener, which they’ve already beaten on Sept. 14. The semifinal, however, will be a stiff task as they’ll more than likely be facing off with Linden.
