Ramzey Hamzey was able to bury a ball in the back of the net in the second half from 25 yards out to lead Dearborn to a 1-0 win over Melvindale in boys soccer Thursday.
Hamzey was a big part of a Dearborn attack that pressed Melvindale all night long to the tune of 13 shots on goal.
Dearborn is 7-4-2.
“This is a game we deserved to win,” Dearborn coach Aaron Pfeil said. “We possessed the ball well and moved upfield with intent.”
The loss was Melvindale’s first of the year, dropping it to 7-1-3.
“It’s always nice to get these quality wins,” Pfeil said. “I saw a mental toughness to go forward. It’s all in preparation for the playoffs.”
Jamil Chami picked up his fourth shutout of the season with eight saves.
Bashar Ahmed racked up 12 saves for Melvindale.
