TRAVERSE CITY — The Traverse City Christian Sabres are a game away from shutting out districts.

The Sabres earned a 6-0 win over Grayling in Monday's district semifinal at the Keystone Soccer Complex, advancing to a district final against Elk Rapids Wednesday.

Henry Reineck scored four goals, and Luke Montney and Preston Jaworski each scored a goal. Marcus Rystak, the Sabres captain, had three assists, while Reineck added one.

TC Christian gave up five goals in their season-opening game to Glen Lake, but allowed just that many against all other opponents in 19 games since.

"We've really improved, we keep developing, that's the key," first-year head coach Roy Montney said. "We just keep moving forward."

Two of those five goals, however, were against the Sabres next opponent.

Elk Rapids beat Cheboygan 7-0 Monday night, setting up a neutral-site district final at Boyne Mountain Soccer Complex. The Sabres lost to Elk Rapids 2-0 earlier this season.

Montney called the Elks a good team, but he thinks his team absolutely has a shot.

"Can we control? Yes," Montney said. "If we play our game, it's going to be a very good game, no question about that."

Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. Wednesday.
