Five Challengers found the frame as Cascade Christian also registered its third straight shut out in Saturday’s match with Rogue River.
Cody Havniear scored his first goal of the season in the 15th minute off of a feed from Justin Fairbanks. Things hit a lull for a while until David Flores- Hernandez scored in the 52nd minute, thanks to a pass from Isaac Armstrong.
Two minutes later, JJ Thomas banged a goal home from near the left sideline with an assist from Kai Coster. Then in the 61st minute, JT Knobloch-Scott connected on a smash. Jonny McCoy moved up from his sweeper spot for a little time at striker, and wove through traffic to put the icing on the cake with 7 minutes left to go.
Seth Thomas, Brandon Parker, McCoy and Fairbanks anchored a defense that made goalkeeper Caleb Knight feel a little bit like the Maytag repair man. Knight collected three saves on the day that he fielded with ease.
