As rain drizzled among the excited faces of the Cedar Park Christian fans, the Eagles stunned both sides of the crowd by scoring the first touchdown of the night on their way to a 30-14 victory over Charles Wright. With the plays of Zach Dinsmore and Justin Girgus, Cedar Park exhilarated the fans as they celebrated their Homecoming football game. Fans triumphed in glee as their team took a much-needed win.

The Cedar Park defense only surrendered 21 yards of offense in the first half while Dinsmore carried the ball 47 times and ran for 215 yards and scored three touchdowns. Girgus completed six passes for 103 yards, including three to senior fullback Eddie Moldovan.

The defense forced six turnovers, including a crucial interception by Dinsmore to end the first half. Junior linebacker Casey Ronnasi led the team with eight tackles on defense while Cedar Park had five sacks.


After losing 3-2 to Bellevue Christian in the teams’ first meeting, Cedar Park found its opponent’s weakness to obtain a 3-0 win last Tuesday. Though the score remained close during the first two sets, the Eagles took a big lead in the final round. Lindsay Palmer contributed 34 assists, 12 digs and four aces, while teammate Cydnee Dufenhorst added eight kills and four aces.

On Homecoming eve, the Cedar Park volleyball ladies took on Overlake School. In another three-set win for the Eagles, senior Candice Whipple had 12 kills, while Palmer added 23 assists.

Boys soccer

Against its rival school Bellevue Christian, Cedar Park fought for an unassisted goal in the 43rd minute by junior Addison Parker. Both goalkeepers, Lucas Chadwick and Kevin House, saved all shots for a 1-0 shutout.

Fans stood amazed, baffled and exhilarated as the boys soccer team defeated Seattle Christian, 5-0. Parker scored first in the 14th minute assisted by Victor Sviridyuk, and again minutes later assisted by Stefan Verburg. Scoring three goals earned Sviridyuk a hat trick: The first came in the 31st minute assisted by Lawrence Triff, again in the 37th assisted by Triff and, finally, right before halftime assisted by Will Baldwin. Cedar Park moves its record up to 4-4-1.

Girls soccer

Sparks flew as Cedar Park notched a 4-1 victory over University Prep last Tuesday. In the first minute, freshman Danica Granard maneuvered the ball through three defenders to score a perfectly aimed shot and made the score 1-0. Later on in the 48th minute, senior Hannah McPhee scored off a beautiful cross from Cassie McFadden. Just before halftime, U-Prep scored, but Cedar Park kept drilling shots. McFadden had her own goal of the night assisted by Granard in the 60th minute, and Alyssa Lundberg scored the final goal of the night.
