Almont girls soccer rolls Yale, advances to district semi vs. Richmond

ALMONT — Something about the postseason electrifies the Almont girls soccer team.

Maybe it’s the memory of last year’s improbable run to a regional semifinal. Maybe it’s the confidence of having a player with 68 goals since 2022.

Or maybe it’s because when the lights shine bright at this stage, the Raiders do too.

Almont rolled past Yale, 8-0, in a Division 3 district quarterfinal at home Wednesday.

Jesse Kautz had four goals and two assists for the Raiders, who improved to 12-3-3 overall and advanced to Tuesday’s district semifinal against Richmond. The Bulldogs finished the season at 6-11-2.
