Cambridge Christian wrapped up their third-straight Christian Athletic League soccer championship by sweeping its three games in the tourney hosted on the home pitch Oct. 25-26.

The Warriors began play on a chilly Friday morning, staying warm enough to notch a 9-1 win over Faith Foreston. Jack Swenson supplied three goals in the win, and Riley James had a pair of goals. Netting solo goals were David Fryc, Anders Boyum, Justin Roble and Micah Bonkoski.

Friday afternoon, CCS kept on pace with a 9-2 win over Hope Christian. Fryc and Araya Doble both scored twice in the match. Additional goals came from Swenson, Roble, Boyum, Jake Bergman and Danielle Heiderscheid.

The final piece of the championship puzzle came on Saturday morning when the Warriors worked past Valley Christian 3-0 in a match tied 0-0 at the half.

“While we had dominated possession and control, we simply could not find the back of the net in the first half,” replayed CCS Coach Peter Newton. “Then, 7:30 into the second half, senior captain Justin Roble found the upper right corner of the goal from 18 yards off a beautiful pass from fellow senior captain Anders Boyum.  After cracking open the doors on the goal, CCS added two more scores from Syfah Doble and senior David Fryc eight minutes apart. Senior captain  and goalkeeper Grant Taylor logged his eighth and final shutout of the season, recording 18 saves.”

Coach Newton finished, “I couldn’t be more proud of our team. They worked hard, and relentlessly for every inch in the finals.  Our seven seniors delivered great play and hustle, and made sure to set the bar high for the underclassmen.  As wonderful as it is to win 1st place, it is much more rewarding to watch four teams come together and honor God in their play, their interactions, and their attitudes. It was great to be a part of giving God the glory this weekend.”
