The Central women's soccer team opened up MCAC play with a 2-5 loss on the road at Central Baptist College. The Mustangs led 2-0 at the intermission and then added 3 more goals in the second half before the Tigers were able to get on the board. Krystina Powell
, who leads the Tigers with 7 goals on the season, got the Tigers' first goal in the 80th minute off an assist from Susan Alt
. The Tigers scored their second goal moments later off of a corner kick. Stephanie Street
played the ball in to a waiting Susan Alt
who found the back of the net.
The Tigers were outshot 21-5 by the Mustangs, and took 4 more corner kicks. Amanda Curtis
was in goal for the Tigers, filling in for the injured Bri Horstmann
. Curtis recorded 9 saves in the loss. Coach Reimer commented, "Tough first conference game. It's little mistakes that lead to goals that are killing us right now. We played much better in the 2nd
half, we got down 5 goals but the ladies continued to fight through and scored a couple of goals. We possessed pretty good, and attacked well. We'll continue to work. We're close to getting a couple of players back from injuries this week, one we haven't had all year. We're hoping that will make a difference as we get deeper into conference play."
The Tigers are now 1-10 on the season and 0-1 in the MCAC. CCC will be back home again on Wednesday at 3:00 against Southwestern Christian University.
