SCA routs Grandview in Belton soccer tournament

Special to the JournalApril 18, 2014 

The Summit Christian Academy girls soccer team played a perfect “10” in the first round of the Belton tournament.

The Eagles never gave Grandview a chance in April 16 game, putting up 10 goals for a 10-2 victory over the Bulldogs.

Give the credit to Kassi Ginther. Ginther scored six of the Eagles’ 10 goals.

“I couldn’t have done it without all my teammates,” Ginther said. “They passed really good balls to me.”

Ginther wasn’t the only contributor for Summit Christian. Rachel Bacon chipped in three goals, and Madson Sallas added one more.

With a record of 5-2 after the win, the Eagles are having a very good year.

“It’s been going really well,” Summit Christian coach Amber Seimsen said. “We only have two losses, and those losses were good because we learned a lot from them.”

Summit Christian next faced Ruskin on April 17, which had an 0-6 record and had yet to score a goal this season. If they win against Ruskin, the Eagles will land in the championship game and potentially face Pleasant Hill, a team they already defeated earlier this season 6-1.

“This is a very good tournament for us to be in,” Seimsen said.
