The Raptors may have a flair for the dramatic, but so do our U14 Girls soccer team! The girls won in dramatic fashion against Montcrest Monday afternoon in the dying minutes of a 2-2 game compliments of a Chiara Codron goal, her third for the day. But Chiara was only as good as her hard-working midfield, led by the likes of Tina Otchere and Taija Sta. Maria, who looked for loose balls in the middle of the field and created good scoring chances for the offense. Not to be outdone, the defense, led by Taylor Howell and Jolie Drummond, and backstopped by the acrobatics of Abby Mintz, kept the game close enough for the team to pull off the victory in the end.
The U14 Girls’ Soccer team beat the visiting Trafalgar team 1-0 Wednesday afternoon to guarantee its place in next week’s playoffs. The win represented the team’s first shutout and continued to demonstrate how well the team has gelled and overcome adversity in such a short time. Kudos to each and every player who battled each and every ball, with particular shutouts going out to Abby, Taylor, Olivia, Tina, Taija, Corinna, and Chiara. We wish the team continued success. GO CPC!

Monday, the U14 Boys Softball finished their regular season against a very tough first place UCC team. Although the boys ultimately lost 22-13, the game was not without its share of highlight reel plays for CPC. Patrick Shain got the offense started with a huge three run home run. Not to be outdone, Jack Van Volsen matched Patrick later in the game, with his own 3 run home run. Finally, Marcus Green completed a big rally in the bottom of the 4th inning with a slicing triple down the first base line that cleared the bases.
