Haslett beats Williamston, 2-1, in penalties

WILLIAMSTON – The scene was all too familiar for Audrey Archambault.

In last year’s CAAC Gold Cup final, the Haslett senior scored the fifth and final penalty kick to give the Vikings the championship.

And in Thursday night’s championship game against Division 3 top-ranked Williamston, the midfielder was asked to do the same thing.

And just like last year, she delivered.

Archambault’s PK gave Division 2 No. 7 Haslett a 2-1 win over the Hornets to give the Vikings the Gold Cup title for the second consecutive year and set off a pitch invasion from the visiting fans.

“I did get a little bit of déjà vu when I was running back after I scored that goal and saw everyone running at me,” Archambault said. “I thought it was a full-circle moment. It was incredible.

“It definitely helped having the returning team that’s been in big games before. And (they) all want to win and know what it feels like to win those games. I’m just so proud of everyone. Everyone worked so hard during this game and we all worked together to get the outcome that we did.”
