State Rank: 14 Northwest 2B Rank: 2
Head Coach: Chris Grafmiller
2013 Record: 9-8-0
– Offense – 3rd in League, 12th in State
– Defense –2nd in League, 16th in State
Offense – Young Kim will be looked to as the offensive leader on a team that lost two All-District players. Kim has good strength and passing, and makes good decisions with the soccer ball. Replacing the departed goal scorers will be of some concern, but like always the midfield should be a strength for Shoreline Christian.
Defense – The defense was very solid last season for the Crusaders and will likely look to improve this season. The Crusaders had three shutouts in 2013. A couple of starters return at defense with experience and they will look to be in good positions to make plays. One of those players is Seth Eises. Isaac Ensz shared time patrolling the goal last season and returns.
Final Evaluation – The schedule for all of the Northwest teams requires that you be on your game every match, but Shoreline does play a number of very winnable games. They sit in a good position to make the postseason. The offense should find ways to score and the defense will improve as the season progresses, all signs of a solid season.
