Boys soccer team ties in non-league action

The boys soccer team ended in a draw with Cedar Park on Wednesday, with a 2-2 final score.

The Warriors scored early, with Andy Lee taking a great pass from Brian Paulson to score in the fourth minute. Paulson also got an assist near the end of the half when he sent a corner kick toward goal and Josh Kriefels scored on a diving header. Cedar Park scored both its goals in the second half.

“All of the team played a hard game today against a good 1A school,” coach Jason Meeder said. “I’m extremely happy with the way we played today.”

The team lost a 2-0 lead over Tacoma Baptist last Thursday, ending up on the short end of a 4-3 decision.

Paulson had another big game in the loss, scoring twice and making one assist. He hit the games’ first goal on an assist from Lee. Paulson then shot a crossing pass to Jordan Cooper who scored to make it 2-0.

Tacoma Baptist fought back for one goal in the first half, then drilled three straight before King’s West scored again in the second half. Paulson notched that goal on a penalty kick after a hand ball inside the 18-yard box by Tacoma Baptist.
