Life Christian Academy Defense Pitches Second Half Shutout in Road Win
By Steven Dion
Cedar Park Christian played host to 1A Nisqually division opponent Life Christian Academy/Seattle Christian Eagles. The home team from Bothell was celebrating homecoming on Bergh Field at Juanita High School. CP rewarded the crowd with an interception which would later result in the first score of the game, an 18-yard run by speedy Andrew Rickman. It wasn’t until the second frame that Life Christian got on the scoreboard. Senior quarterback Taylor Roelofs ran and threw for a touchdown in before halftime. Another long TD scamper by Rickman and a 37-yard field goal by David Grigoryan rounded out the scoring in the first half. Cedar Park led 16-14 going into the locker room.
Life Christian Academy returned from halftime with a noticeable hunger to win the game by turning up the heat on the defensive side of the ball. Jarel Jones, Logan Devries, and Luke Grocott put heavy pressure on Cedar Park’s freshman QB Rowan Parmenter. The momentum began to shift in favor of the visitors even though the third quarter was scoreless for both sides. However, a long drive by CP that was thwarted by a 4th down stop resulted in a lead-changing score under the legs of Roelofs. Less than a minute later, the LCA player of the game ran another touchdown, this time from 45 yards. Cedar Park ran back the ensuing kickoff into LCA territory and moved the ball to the 4 yard line, but failed to score. The visiting squad picks up a crucial league win as Life Christian moves to (2-1, 3-4 overall) and Cedar Park falls to (2-1, 5-3 overall).
