Warrior Soccer wins two on the pitch

Cambridge Christian soccer opened its 2012 campaign with two non-league victories at the end of last week.

The Warriors kicked off Aug. 30 with a 4-1 win at Fourth Baptist. Anders Boyum scored in the fifth minute with a beautiful left-footed bender. Josh Roble then assisted Syfah Doble who scored in the 20th minute and again in the 56th minute. Boyum then fed Roble who netted the fourth goal in the 70th minute. Fourth Baptist scored a lone goal in mop-up time, and the Warriors held for the victory. Grant Taylor, back in goal for the team, stopped 18 shots.

On Aug. 31, CCS posted a 6-0 win at Liberty Classical. Boyum scored twice and had 1 assist. Roble scored and also had two assists. Doble netted one for his team-leading third of the year, and David Fryc and Isaiah Hurd both netted single goals as the Warriors cruised to a 2-0 overall record.

Warrior Volleyball begins 2-1

After opening the season with a 3-1 win over visiting St. Cloud Christian, CCS volleyball ran into a tough Fourth Baptist squad Aug. 30 which prevailed 25-23, 23-25, 25-17, 25-19.

Coach Rachel Newton: “They covered the court excellently with a very skilled libero, and we just couldn’t get the kills that we needed to win. Caitlin Walburg led in digs with 19. Kristin Bergman and Kellie Pedersen each had 4 kills. Shelby Doble scored 8 points and had 1 ace, and Caitlin Walburg had 7 points with 3 aces.

CCS 3, Liberty Classical 0

Aug. 31, the Warriors over-matched host Liberty Classical 25-7, 25-12, 25-5.

Coach Newton: “The games were easily won because of Liberty’s inability to serve-receive. Karly Wiek led the team with 14 points/9 aces, C. Walburg scored 13 points with 7 aces, and Shelby Doble scored 9 points with 6 aces.  Kim Walburg had 6 assists, and Pedersen led the team with 5 kills. I was able to play many of the varsity subs, which was nice, and we were able to try out some different rotations and offensive plays.”
