After coming off a 10-0 win against the Victory Christian Vikings, the boys’ soccer team looked to pick up another one on their home field when they faced off against the Forest Lake Christian Falcons, Dec. 7.

Although it wasn’t another blowout, the Cavs still shut out the Falcons, 3-0.

In the beginning of the first half, the boys had a couple shots on goal, but they sailed high over the crossbar.

The rest of the half remained stagnant until only seconds were left.

Then junior Theo Kaufman put a bullet across the goal into the side of the net, putting the Cavs up, 1-0, at halftime.

But the Cavs weren’t going to let up.

About five minutes into the second half, sophomore Nate Jakobs broke away from the defense downfield.

Jakobs juked the goalkeeper and put in the Cavs’ second goal.

According to Jakobs, the Cavs passed the ball well the whole game, which set up their third and final goal for senior Aidan Cunningham.

Cunningham got the ball, dribbled past the defender and slightly curved a perfect shot into the side net from the top of the goal box.

In fact, the Falcons had only one shot on goal the entire game, giving senior goalie Zane Jakobs an easy day.

According to senior Emil Erickson, the Falcons never had a chance to score.

“We played really strong defense and put away some good chances in the second half,” Erickson said.

Before the next game with Encina Prep, Kaufman said the boys need to work on passing and connecting while they are attacking.

The Cavs will face the Bulldogs at Encina on Friday, Dec. 9, at 3 p.m.
