Thunder Soccer Split At Spurgeon
Both Thunder soccer teams opened up play this past Friday at Spurgeon College, where we saw them split with the home team.
The Manhattan Christian ladies got things started off, a little short handed in their first game of the season MCC fought hard all 90-minutes. Freshman forward, Bella Logsdon got the Thunder on the scoreboard but MCC struggled to keep the Knights from scoring. Manhattan fell 4-1.
The men were next up in the double header game. With a sluggish start to the game MCC saw themselves down in the first half to the Knights. But what seemed to be first game gitters out of their system, freshman midfielder, Chris Smith got things rolling for the Thunder scoring two goals. Those two goals were just enough to pull ahead and take the game 2-1 over Spurgeon. This win was also the first win for newly appointed head coach Joe Lopez here at Manhattan Christian College.
Up next for our Thunder soccer, the men will host Arkansas Baptist College at home September 2. While the women's next game will be September 17 at Faith Baptist Bible College.
