Warrior Soccer stays on roll

Cambridge Christian hosted a wildly-entertaining, up-and-down match against Rosemount Baptist Sept. 18. The Warriors improved to 11-0 on the season with a 5-1 victory, handing their Crusaders their first loss of autumn.

In the early going, CCS keeper Grant Taylor was tested on a full-field solo rush and shot. The Warriors answered back with good pushes and shots by Anders Boyum, Jack Swenson and David Fryc. Isaiah Hurd also hustled on a play which ended in a collision with the Rosemount keeper, and Syfah Doble just missed a goal when the ball sailed over the cross bar with both players down.

The Crusaders resumed pressure afterward and took a 1-0 lead with a perfectly-lofted free kick over a fully-extended Taylor. As the game became more physical, Josh Roble settled things down nicely for CCS when he chased down a ball in the corner, turned and rocketed a shot inside the left goalpost to knot the game at 1-1.

With just one minute remaining in the half, Boyum took on three defenders and ripped a low shot for a 2-1 Warrior lead.

Boyum kept on rolling in the second half, scoring at the 51st, 56th and 68th minutes to help keep the Crusaders at bay as the team defense stiffened.

“Grant Taylor was fantastic in net, stopping 22 shots (including several point-blank blasts),” said Warrior Coach John Newton. “Peter Maring and Josh Roble also performed exceptionally as the Warriors played an excellent all-around game.”

• On Sept. 14, the Warriors shut out visiting Christian Life 9-0 to raise their CAL record to 2-0. Scoring two goals each were Hurd and Diether Modina. Adding solo goals were Justin Roble, Jake Bergman, Maring, Araya Doble and Bill Enos.
