WMC Roundup: Soccer storms back to salvage tie

The Warriors trailed the Eagles throughout the entire second half, 3-1, but put two balls into the goal in the final 75 seconds to gain a tie.

Freshman Alexis Riksen, who had been out with a knee injury suffered early in last Wednesday’s game against Covenant Christian, got the Warriors rolling. She was inserted in the lineup with about five minutes remaining in the game and scored with 75 seconds left to make it 3-2.

Senior Timera Crosby then tied the game with 20 seconds to play.


The WMC boys finished sixth and girls ninth Saturday out of 12 Christian high schools from Michigan and Illinois competing in the Houseward Invitational held annually at Hudsonville Unity Christian.

Deon Fox had a strong day for the Warriors’ boys, as he took second in the high jump (6-2), second in the 110-meter hurdles (16.2 seconds) and fourth in the 300-meter hurdles (44.3).

For the girls, Rachel Bruinsma had a first-place showing in the high jump, as she cleared 5-feet. Elyse Ray tied for fifth in the event, as she cleared 4-8.
