Mustangs Fall Prey to Fowl Play
October 19, 2013
EL CAJON, Calif. – A San Diego Christian goal at the 60:57 mark, coupled with a goal off a penalty kick at the 66:25 mark gave the Hawks a 2-0 victory, and lowered The Master’s College men’s soccer team’s 2013 record to 3-8-1 and 2-4 in GSAC play.
Notably, the loss snaps TMC’s two game winning streak, the longest of the squads’ 2013 campaign.
“We struggled in the first half to get a rhythm,” commented Mustang head coach Jim Rickard. “In the second half, we played better but made one mistake. SDCC played really well, and we struggled on their field. Overall, we didn't take care of our chances so we weren't able to put any real pressure on them.”
Jorge Serano (Sylmar, CA) led TMC with 3 shots and 2 shots on goal. Freshman standout Zach Klindworth (Valencia, CA), followed with 2 shots and 1 shot on goal. Despite allowing two goals, Mustang goalkeeper Kyle Cunningham (Saugus, CA), tallied four saves.
Looking to right the ship, TMC will now attempt to rebound against Westmont College on Tuesday in a 3:00 PM match at Reese Field. The Warriors currently boast a 7-5 (3-3) overall record.
“Westmont is a very solid team with a great coach who has some momentum after beating Arizona Christian,” assessed Rickard on the upcoming GSAC showdown. “This match has big playoff implications, and should be an entertaining game to watch.”
