Head coach Skip Mukhtar can't catch a break.

On Monday evening, his Grosse Pointe North boys' soccer team played St. Clair Shores Lakeview.

Sophomore Don Robertson scored at the 19:03 mark of the second half to tie it 1-1, but with 4:53, left, the Huskies' Gjonson Biblekaj was awarded a penalty kick after he was tackled in the box.

His penalty kick sailed high, hit the crossbar and came right back to him. He kicked the ball again into the net, but he was the first person to touch it, so the goal was disallowed.

Not more than 10 seconds later, Biblekaj found himself open again and this time didn't miss, scoring the game-winning goal as the Norsemen lost 2-1.

North lost 4-2 to Anchor Bay last week, dropping to 0-10-2 overall and 0-6-1 in the Macomb Area Conference White Division.
