Watchman slam Central Christian
With much of its schedule front-loaded with the best teams in OSAA 3A/2A/1A Special District 6, the C.S. Lewis Academy soccer team has taken more than its fair share of lumps this season.
With that stretch behind them, though, the Watchmen had a chance to turn the tables on someone for a change in a 6-2 home win over Central Christian Oct. 5.
"It was nice to play on the other end of the field," said CSLA coach Brett Vernon. "Most of the time we play pretty defensive. That's our style. We're one of the youngest teams in the whole state with all freshmen, all juniors plus two seniors. It's worked a few matches and couple of times it's gotten us good, but that's what happens when you're young."
Trevor Ambrose scored late in the first half to put CSLA on top, but for the most part, the Watchmen misfired on their many scoring chances in the first half.
That wasn't the case in the second half however, as Ambrose added a second goal and Elizabeth Warren and Bryson Lee chipped in with two goals apiece.
"Lizzy is all over the field all the time," Vernon said. "She really doesn't have a position. She's just stays with the ball. It's unbelievable what she does for us, so it was nice to see her score because most of the time she doesn't get those chances to shoot because she's always in the midfield."
C.S. Lewis (2-7-1, 1-7-1 SD6) fell behind Grand View Christian 4-1 early in the second half Monday, but got goals from two goals from Ambrose and a penalty kick from Ben Swan to rally for the draw.
