The Forest Lake Christian girls soccer team tuned up for its first ever postseason appearance with a 9-0 win over visiting Trinity Prep of Napa in Tuesday regular season finale.

The Lady Falcons (17-4 overall, 12-2 Central Valley Christian League) finished second in the league behind Sacramento Country Day to earn a spot in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV playoffs.

FLC will play Southern League champ Central Catholic in Modesto, 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“We’re all so excited. The girls have worked hard all season. They earned it,” FLC co-coach Coleen Winans said.

Amanda Cederloff put the hosts on the board early with a solo goal in the second minute. She finished with two goals and an assist.

Amber Harman and Sam Van Winkle scored two goals each.

Brittney Gilfillan, Andrea Lowe and Kelsey McKeever also scored.

FLC clinched the postseason berth with Friday’s 2-1 home field win over Country Day.

The cheers changed to concern three days later when two of the Lady Falcons’ top players went down in Monday’s 1-0 win at Faith Christian of Yuba City.

Katelyn Gilfillan, who was on crutches Tuesday, and Kelly Ginney had to leave the game early.

“We’re not sure about Katelyn. We’ll have to wait and see. Kelly will be back (for the playoffs),” FLC co-coach Ron Hutchinson said. “Right now we’re just trying to get ready for the playoffs. We’re trying to get our confidence back after a rough game Monday.”
