CLAWSON — While the turf may have still had a winter feel to it, the Clawson High girls soccer team sure had no problem heating things up when the 2018 season began.

And the Trojans haven’t looked back since.

“I really didn’t know a ton about this team,” first-year coach Tyler Jugon said. “I had heard some good things, but you never know.”

Jugon, who is a 2013 Clawson grad, coached the boys program this past fall, but he had never worked with any of the girls on his current team.

“We held some workouts, and there were so many of them there,” Jugon said. “It was obvious how hard they wanted to work, and how hard they did work to get better. … Last year was a deep team, but they graduated some very important seniors.”

The new crop started quick.

At press time, the Trojans were without a loss in five games, sitting with a 4-0-1 record.

“It’s been a real quick transition, which has been great,” Jugon said. 

Jugon was quick to credit keeper Macy Williams, saying she’s been stellar in goal.

But the offense has also been dynamite, scoring 17 times in the first five games.

“The thing I like is we’re winning, but we’re not at our best,” Jugon said. “We know we can get better. We know we can improve. If we keep working at this, this team is going to be very good.”

Good enough to contend for a Macomb Area Conference Gold Division crown, and beyond, Jugon said.

“I think the district is something these girls want and they are capable of,” he added. “We know it wont be easy, but when we’re playing at the top of our game, we feel like we can beat anybody.”
