Falcons dominate in finale

Andreas Zeischegg scored his second hat trick of the season Monday in Forest Lake Christian’s 12-3 victory at Vacaville Christian.

The win was the Central Valley Christian League finale.

The Falcons (18-3-2 overall, 11-0-1 CVCL) will host the first round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Div. VI playoffs Nov. 7.

Ben Sparling, Taylor Bigelow and Zack Rose each scored two goals in Vacaville, while Caleb O’Brien, Matt Rose and Mitch Seman each struck once.

Jason Pulliam recorded eight saves as keeper.

Vacaville Christian struck first, getting on the board in fewer than three minutes.

At the 10th minute, Sparling tied the game with FLC’s first goal, but Vacaville Christian regained the lead with another score at the 24th minute.

The Falcons, however, scored three goals in an eight-minute period to make it 4-2 at halftime.

“We blew them off the field,” Forest Lake Christian coach Thad Kopec said.

Lauren Juric served nine aces and had eight kills in the Bruins’ 25-15, 25-11, 25-11 win at Whitney.

Elsie Bisnett finished with seven kills and three aces and Beth Arnold added four kills, three aces and two digs.

Milada Balohlavek helped Bear River with a team-high 20 assists, while Kristen Bestelmeyer knocked in four aces.

The Bruins improved to 8-3 in the PVL with the win. They host the regular-season finale at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday against rival Colfax.


Miners compete at sub-sections

Brittanie Miller survived until the second round at the sub-section singles tournament in Roseville. Miller won the first round, but lost in the second to a player from Del Oro.
