In the first year of Bloomfield Hills High athletics, its soccer team will be going to the state semifinals.
With less than five minutes left in the contest, Conor Wahl was able to deflect a loose ball in the box after a corner kick to score the game-winner for Bloomfield, as the Black Hawks defeated Utica 2-1 Friday evening.
"It's fantastic. They seem to be getting stronger and stronger, not just on the field but off the field," Bloomfield coach Dougie MacAulay said. "The dream is coming a little bit closer."
The two sides exchanged goals late in the first half to set up the dramatic ending.
Bloomfield's Kyle Petrovich opened the scoring with 6:27 remaining in the first half. Utica's Matt Wilkie responded immediately by scoring on a rebound with 5:19 left before intermission.
Utica finishes the season with a 17-6-3 record, while Bloomfield Hills (15-2-5) advances to play the winner of Rochester Adams and Traverse City West in a state semifinal game on Tuesday night.
