The Blissfield High School Royals varsity men’s soccer team, which has thrilled local fans all season long and won the ISL championship for the first time in the program’s history, saw its season end on a rainy Tuesday afternoon at the hands of Lenawee Christian School, 4-1, in district action.
LCS went into halftime up 2-0 in the game, played in Blissfield.
Royal Josiah Makula scored Blissfield’s only goal in the second half with 8:36 remaining, trailing 3-1 at that point. Ultimately, LCS won the postseason game with two goals from Chris Drewery and a goal each from Jessie Maguire and David Park.
Blissfield had beaten LCS twice earlier in the season, but the third time did not prove to be a charm for the Royals in 2014.
