Cedar Park Christian sports roundup


Fighting for a win last Friday, Cedar Park let down in the first three quarters, but was able to rouse the crowd with 14 points in the last few minutes despite losing 34-14 against Orting. Cedar Park sports a 2-3 record.


With a wonderful team effort, Cedar Park picked up a three-set win over University Prep last Tuesday. Kayla Zacharias added 11 digs and seven aces, while teammate Cydnee Dufenhorst tallied six kills and six aces.

With a 1-3-1 record, the Eagles knew they needed a win against Bush. Unfortunately mistakes produced goals, and Bush walked away with a two-goal advantage at halftime, but not before Addison Parker hit the net unassisted in the 48th minute. Knowing they were still in the game with only a point to tie, Cedar Park fought, but lost to a 70th-minute goal by Bush to leave the score 3-1.

Challenging Seattle Academy last Friday, both teams were left in a finishing match. A goal from Seattle Academy in the 44th minute didn’t stop Cedar Park from finishing. An unassisted goal by senior Lawrence Triff tied the game in the 58th minute. Both teams strove to score the final goal, but the defensive sides stayed strong and ended the game in a 1-1 draw.

Girls soccer

Cedar Park and Overlake battled last Tuesday through both regulation and overtime to find the net. Even though the Eagles persevered, a swift header by Overlake in the 89th minute gave the Eagles a 1-0 loss.

With an early goal from Danica Granard against Northwest School, Cedar Park held its opponent off and took a 1-0 victory last Thursday.

During Saturday’s game against Forest Ridge, Cedar Park looked a little shaky, but after halftime, intensity sparked in the Eagles’ eyes. Off a Forest Ridge handball, junior Ryan Miller soared the ball into the net in the 41st minute. With so many opportunities to score in the second half, Granard, assisted by Nicolette Clark, finally gave the Eagles a 2-0 lead in the 60th minute to end the game. Junior goalkeeper Kari Johnson was outstanding and currently holds four shutouts for the year.
