Dow Football Edges BCW, Creek Volleyball Sweeps

Dow High senior Danny Safadi scored in the 75e minute Monday to lead the Chargers to a key 1-0 win over visiting Bay City Western in Saginaw Valley League men’s soccer.

After the Chargers controlled play for much of the game, Safadi retrieved a stray ball in the box during a scramble and buried it in the net for the only goal of the game. Justin Alade was credited with an assist.

“BCW played strong defensively, and their goalie made some great saves to keep them in the game,” Dow coach Drew Emrich said. “I was happy to see Danny take that game-winning game. He’s an anchor in our back line and he doesn’t appear on the scoreboard often, so that was even more special.

Dow finished with a 24-4 advantage in total shots and an 11-1 advantage in shots on goal.

The Chargers (7-4-0 overall, 4-1-0 SVL) travel to Saginaw Heritage on Wednesday.
