CLINTONVILLE — Katie Matott took off on a breakaway with just over 12 minutes remaining and snuck one past AuSable Valley’s Bryce Douglass to score the game-winning goal in Northeastern Clinton’s 2-1 Northern Soccer League girls’ soccer victory.

Rachel Knapp gave the Patriots a 1-0 lead when she scored on an assist from Kendra Niemann with 27:21 remaining in the first half.

Then, Matott scored her game-winner with 12:09 remaining in the game.

“Both teams played well and controlled the game at different times,” AuSable Valley coach Bruce Bourgeois said. “Coach (Tim) Surprenant kept his team focused in the second half to keep the pressure on the AuSable side.
