Defending Division II champions also had a field day on the soccer pitch, as Christian Academy Japan’s boys and Yokota’s girls finished Wednesday unbeaten, with the Knights taking the top seed entering the boys double-elimination playoffs.

But boys D-II host Perry may have suffered a huge loss on opening day – senior Kai Lange, who leads the Pacific 32 goals, suffered a deep bone contusion above his right knee, his coach and father Mark said.

Lange still managed to score two goals, “but he can hardly move,” the elder Lange said. “It is what it is. We’ll see tomorrow.”
