CADILLAC — Cadillac found some offense as it beat Alpena 6-3 in a Big North Conference soccer contest Thursday at the CASA fields.

"I'm very proud of the way we played tonight," Cadillac coach Ian Wolf said. "Our attack is starting to click and we're moving the ball extremely well in the final third of the field.

"We made mistakes on set pieces which Alpena is always dangerous at but with training, we will clean those up and look to improve next time."

Bryan Farley led the way for the Vikings with three goals while Brady McLaurin, Mike Mollohan and Alex King also scored. McLaurin, Mollohan (2), Ben Drabik and Brendan McRoberts recorded assists.

"The player of the match for me was Bryan," Wolf said. "His finishing was exceptional.

"We were able to give some younger players time tonight, too, and I thought they did very well."

Elliot Lavigne made 13 saves in goal.
