Not too many seasons ago -- two, to be exact -- Seattle Christan Schools made it a long ways in boys soccer, having gone to the championship game of the 1A WIAA Dairy Farmers Of Washington state tournament for high school play.
"We played Lake Chelan, and they played soccer at a really high level," said Trent Siedenburg, a Warriors' senior captain. "We let in a couple early goals; they had a guy who could dribble and score really well, they had a good team. They played a really high level of soccer. They deserved it."
Final score was in favor of Lake Chelan, 3-1.
SCS, in that 1A title game two seasons ago, went into it, undefeated, according to Siedenburg. But, the team, last year, followed up that stellar campaign with a much lesser mark of 10-7-1, overall, with no return trip to state.
So, what's in store for this season, with a Warriors' team that is very young, with only two seniors that played, that helped them, in a 4-1 loss to host, Foster, in non-league preseason action on Wednesday?
"I think we can be a notch better than last year, but we're young," said David Peters, the Warriors' head coach.
