Prep roundup: Salem routs Ann Arbor Huron at home; Plymouth trounces Lansing Sexton.
Last season, Salem hoped a close Week 1 win against Ann Arbor Huron would be a sign the fledgling football program was about to turn a page. The Rocks, however, failed to capitalize on its momentum, struggling through an injury-plagued season en route to a disappointing 3-6 record. After Friday's 41-17 win over the River Rats in a Week 1 rematch of last 2011's season-opening matchup, Rocks coach Kurt Britnell feels his team is better poised to have the kind of breakout year that has eluded Salem, which shares a campus with football powerhouses Canton and Plymouth. "This year, we're expected to make that next step," Britnell said after his team's win. "Last year, injuries kind of bit us in the butt a little bit. This year, we're healthy. …

Canton's varsity soccer team advances to the MHSAA Division 1 semifinal against Troy.
The captains led the way for the Canton Chiefs, who defeated the host Saline Hornets 2-0 in Friday’s regional final. The ever-dangerous Allyson Krause broke a 0-0 tie on a pretty goal on the second half, and Megan Trapp iced it on a corner kick deflection. Danielle Schendel made several saves in the shutout victory, but was never really tested. Krause spent the game’s first 55 minutes putting the Hornets on their heels. Finally, with 14:50 to play, Krause broke free of the Hornets defense and beat goalie Hayley Reynolds with a terrific shot. The goal came after about 90 seconds of Saline pressure in Canton’s end. “Megan Trapp put a great ball into the left corner. I had two players on my back. I pulled the ball back with one foot and …

The Canton Chiefs advanced to Friday’s MHSAA regional soccer final with a 4-0 win over Dearborn Tuesday at Saline High School. Megan Trapp converted a corner kick 16 minutes into the game to give Canton a 1-0 lead and the Chiefs never looked back.
