Pleasant surprises of boys soccer

Believe it or not, the regular season for boys soccer is over halfway through, so Kosmo felt this was a good time to take a brief break from football and post something about soccer. The whole Academy issue has made this one wide open season where anybody can beat anybody on a given night more than the K-Man can remember. So far though, here are the teams that have stood out to Kosmo. Troy Athens - Is there any doubt that Todd Heugh is one of the state's top coaches and the perfect successor to the legendary Tim Storch? Athens had a lot of graduation losses from last year's regional final team yet sits atop the standings in the brutal OAA Red. Max Klitzke has been as good of a player as anyone so far. Stoney Creek - Throwing so man young players onto the field the last two years seems to be paying dividends for the Cougars, who are right behind Athens in the Red Division following a win over Clarkston on Tuesday. There aren't many better leaders in the area than senior Scott Alampi. Auburn Hills Avondale - The defending Division 2 state champions have proven to be worthy defenders so far with the way they have controlled the OAA White. Despite key graduation losses, Dave Muczynski's boys look ready for a run at a repeat. Birmingham Brother Rice - The Warriors would've been maybe the state's No. 1 ranked team at the start of the season, but that changed when their best players decided to play Academy ball. Still Brother Rice has plugged along, as evidenced by the fact its first loss came on Tuesday to Catholic Central.
