The Grosse Pointe North boys’ soccer team outplayed visiting Warren Cousino last week, but lost 1-0.“You have to score to win,” head coach Skip Mukhtar said. “It’s a tough loss because the guys played hard and had chances to win this game, but we just couldn’t score.”The Patriots scored the lone goal early in the first half and that would be their only real threat in the game.The Norsemen defense played well and kept the scoring chances to a minimum.In the second half, Mukhtar’s squad badly outplayed the Patriots and had four golden chances to score, but those shots either hit the crossbar or the goalie saved them.In other recent league and non-league games, the Norsemen lost to St. Clair Shores Lake Shore 2-0 and L’Anse Creuse North 3-1, falling to 0-8-1 in the Macomb Area Conference White Division and 0-13-2 overall.
