Portland Christian has long been the team to beat in small-school boys soccer, but Corbett broke that grip Monday night with a 2-1 comeback victory that completed a season sweep in the three meetings between the teams this fall.

The Cardinals regained their form and kept pressure in the Royals' half through the final whistle, scoring twice in a two-minute span to take the win.
