DOWAGIAC — Visiting Otsego blanked Dowagiac 2-0 in a Wolverine Conference match Wednesday night.

“We played hard and controlled most of the game, but were unlucky on the goals against,” said Dowagiac coach Mike Williams.

The Chieftains are back on the pitch Monday when they host South Haven at 5:30 p.m.

Cole Weller had both goals for the Chieftains, while Ethan Saylor had an assist.
