It has been a long week for the Thunderbirds. The Melvindale Cardinals took no pity on the home team as they rolled into town for a Windsday afternoon game. It was blustery to say the least. The T-Birds took the wind and the lead in the first half off the foot of sophomore Sadie Gerlach. Edsel dominated possession but were unable to build on the lead. Melvindale knotted the score on the second half as they enjoyed the wind at their backs. Sophomore Peyton Marion put Edsel up 19 minutes into the second half. Then Gerlach added the insurance goal with just under 5 minutes to go. The Cardinal goalie was put to the test and held up well, but the T-Bird attack was a little too much. Edsel earned a well deserved day off and will begin preparing for their final DRL game Wednesday as the Allen Park Jaguars come calling. JV kicks off at 4:30 while varsity plays at 6:00
