On Monday, September 17th, CAC hosted a Flood The Field with girls' and boys' home soccer teams. The CAC varsity girls' soccer team played AIMZ girls' soccer academy and the varsity boys' soccer team played AIAX boys' soccer team.

The CAC boys team won the game against AIAX boys' soccer academy 2-1. AIAX was ahead with the score of 1-0 at halftime. The CAC boys scored early in the 2nd half to tie the game then continued pressing and scored again later in the 2nd half.

The girls' team played with AIMZ girls' soccer academy to a 4-4 draw. AIMZ academy jumped to a 3-0 lead after the first half. At the start of the second half, AIMZ scored on a penalty shot to go ahead of CAC 4-0. The CAC girls then stormed back in the second half with 4 unanswered goals and continued to press hard in the last 5 minutes of the game, ending in a 4-4 draw.
