The Cambridge Christian soccer club won its opening Christian Athletic League match with a 6-0 effort over Valley Christian on the home field Sept. 10.
Jack Swenson and Diether Modina both scored two goals, with Swenson adding an assist. Netting solo goals were Araya Doble and Syfah Doble, with more assists going to S. Doble, Justin Roble and Jake Bergman.
“We spaced the field well, and were very patient with our offensive attack. We played controlled and focused on possession. Our team showed poise and determination for all 80 minutes,” described CCS Coach Peter Newton.
• On Sept. 17, it was a tale of two halves as the wind and misty rain picked up at CCS during the match between the Warriors and Fourth Baptist. The Warriors controlled the action out of the gate by taking advantage of a corner kick. Anders Boyum was fed at the top of the box, and he shifted the ball to his left foot and lined home the opening score.
Just 1:30 later, A. Doble pushed the ball to S. Doble who crossed it to David Fryc, and Fryc touched the ball past the FB keeper. Minutes later, Juice Solomon worked a nice give-and-go with Fryc which resulted in a quality shot on goal.
Fourth Baptist began applying pressure on the CCS net as keeper Grant Taylor was kept active with saves. Defender Bergman added a key kick-out stop on one shot that got behind Taylor. Fourth Baptist took advantage of a penalty kick to make it 2-1 in the half, then they added two goals in the second half to earn a 3-2 road win. CCS is now 2-3 on the season.
CCS Coach Peter Newton: “While we hate to come out on the losing end of any competition, we can take away some big positives. Our team is continuing to space the field well, control the ball, and attack with precision. We had plenty of goal scoring opportunities, and our defense did a great job containing a very potent attacking squad.”
