The Griffins, who are a combination of players from Nashua Christian and Mount Zion, achieved yet another victory on the cold, rainy afternoon of Wednesday, Oct. 28. The team faced Jesse Remmington High School in this playoff game, with the final score being 5-0. The Griffins are nearing the end of their season, leaving only the championship game to be played. Being undefeated champions last year as well, the team hopes to maintain their title.
Although the team is undefeated, they focus on more than just winning. Players are encouraged in their spiritual walks with the Lord, to have good sportsmanship, and to give everything they’ve got on the field. The team always prays before and after games to give the glory to God no matter what the score.
In addition to bonding with each other on a spiritual level, they also get to experience awesome bonding with other teams and players. After the game on Wednesday, the two opposing teams had a chance to join together as a captain from Jesse Remmington led them in a prayer of gratitude.
“I really appreciate how even though we are rivals, we can come together like that,” said junior Hannah Keldsen. “Knowing that they are supporting us going into the championship game is a great feeling.”
The Griffins are very excited to be heading to the championship on Saturday at Gill Stadium. What a blessing the past soccer season has been to everyone involved, and everyone is excited to finish off at the championship game where the team will be well supported by their family and friends. As the team’s chant goes, “One God, one family, one goal!” Go, Griffins!
