C-I boys soccer earns second win of season

The Cambridge-Isanti boys soccer team found their second win of the season.

On Sept. 12, the Bluejackets traveled to Big Lake for some Mississippi 8 soccer action.

With both teams sitting at the bottom of the conference table, it was crucial for the Bluejackets to pull out a win, and distance themselves from the bottom of the pack.

It was a high scoring day for a soccer game, as the Bluejackets pulled off the 4-3 win. Until their game in Big Lake, the team had only scored six goals on the entire season.

The boys found a way to execute their game plan. They controlled a fair amount of possession, while making the right passes and runs to find the open space.

The Bluejackets will still look to shore up their back line after another multi-goal game.

The next test for the boys was a home game against another M8 rival, Monticello, on Sept. 14. The Magic came to town and gave the Bluejackets a run for their money.

The boys played well, creating a few counter opportunities. In the end though, they were not able to find the back of the net.

The Bluejacket defense played well, despite being on their heels much of the game. The Magic dominated possession, but C-I did a good job of winning balls at midfield.

Despite their effort, the Magic were able to sneak four goals past sophomore keeper Tahtan Kassa and pull off the 4-0 win.

Coming up for the team will be one of their biggest tests of the season, when they travel to Buffalo on Sept.. 21. Buffalo is currently tied with Monticello on top of the M8 table, with a 3-0 record in conference play.
