ADAIR VILLAGE — The Santiam Christian boys soccer team improved to 2-5 on the season with a 5-3 victory over Crosshill Christian on Saturday in an endowment game.
The game was tied 2-2 at halftime but SC pulled away with three straight goals – all by Robin Lee.
“We basically put in a lot of players in the first half that weren’t getting a lot of playing time,” SC coach Ron Brooks said. “In the second half, we put in people who were playing in their normal positions and we basically started working as a team, working the ball.”
Luis Palacios had one goal and two assists in the victory. Ryan Almen also had a goal and an assist.
SC will play at East Linn Christian on Tuesday.
