Windham Christian Warriors win championship

Windham Christian Academy's varsity soccer team won the Maine Christian School
Sports League (MCSSL) soccer championship. The MCSSL is made up of 14
Christian schools throughout southern Maine.

Windham Christian Academy faced Seacoast Christian School of South Berwick in the championship game played at Memorial Field in Portland. The two teams had split two games during the regular season both winning at home. The loss to Seacoast Christian had been Windham Christian's only loss on the year.

In the championship game, Windham Christian's offense was back to full strength after having lost three starters to injuries during parts of the season. The Warrior's offense controlled play for most of the game and came away with the 7-2 championship win. Leading the way were: Noah Seavey, four goals, two assists; Christian Twombly (captain) one goal, three assists; Alex Williamson (captain) two assists; and Brandon Berry two goals.

The defense for Windham Christian was solid all season allowing just 17 goals on the season, by far the fewest in the league. Led by defensive captain, Jason Gulstrom in goal, the defense consistently turned back the Seacoast attack and put the ball back on the feet of the Warrior offense. Defensive standouts were Matt Fletcher, Ausashia Day, Katie Willard and Seth Strout.

Coach Roy Mickelson stated, "This was a total team effort, every player gave their all and every player contributed to the team's success. I am so very proud of this team for how they have embraced the team concept, honored one another, and for the lessons they learned doing so."
