Cedar Park Christian sports roundup

It was a week of surprises for Cedar Park Christian High as the Eagles won their first games of the season.

Football

Eagles supporters came out Sept. 11 to witness the first league win against La Conner, 68-28. Away at Darrington, Cedar Park never let down, but sensed the tension as the score remained close all four quarters. Cedar Park took a 2-0 record with a 16-14 win over Darrington, and set a new tone for the 2009 season.

Volleyball

Working as a team, many players stepped up against Forest Ridge last Monday and showed their enthusiasm to play and win, including senior Candice Whipple who delivered 11 kills, 10 digs and four aces. Lindsay Palmer added 25 assists, while teammates Mattie Shelford and Carley Ridout each contributed four aces. The Eagles secured a 3-0 set win to start off the season.

Girls soccer

After competing in their first tournament Sept. 11, the Cedar Park soccer girls felt confident with their 3-2 win over Montesano. Junior Morgan Green slammed two goals in the net early in the game, while fellow junior Ryan Miller added one more in the 57th minute on a free kick. The inspiration carried over to their season opener against Bellevue Christian last Saturday, when they defeated the rival school, 3-1. Freshman Cassie McFadden created excitement when she ripped a high shot right over the keeper’s head in the 38th minute. Junior and forward Nicolette Clark almost obtained a hat trick, but settled with two goals in 64th minute and in overtime.

Boys soccer

Matching Overlake on Monday, Cedar Park struggled to take home a win and instead fell defeated, 5-1. With the first goal coming from Overlake in only the 16th minute, the Eagles began to feel pressure. After the first 60 minutes passed, Cedar Park was able to hold them off and even add a point to their side in the 70th minute by Darrell Holmquist.
