The CCC men's and women's soccer teams wrap up the regular season portion of their schedule this week with a pair road conference games on Wednesday and Saturday. The Tigers start off the week in Bethany, Oklahoma against Southwestern Christian University. The SWCU Eagles, who joined the conference just a few years ago, have rapidly climbed out of the basement to the top echelon of the MCAC.
The SWCU Eagle women find themselves at 6-8-1 on the season and 1-4 in the MCAC. The Eagles' lone MCAC win came back on September 29 against Waldorf. The Eagles defeated the Vikings 2-1. Last season the Tigers and Eagles played in McPherson. The Eagles defeated the Tigers 1-0 in overtime. The Tigers are currently 2-13 on the season and 0-5 in the MCAC. The Tigers are looking to improve upon last season's record and get their first conference win of the season.
The Tiger men are still in the hunt for a berth in the MCAC conference tournament. The Tigers need two wins this week and then a little help from some of the other teams in the conference. The Tigers are 8-6-2 on the season and 1-2-1 in the MCAC. The SWCU Eagles come into today's game holding down the 3rd spot in the MCAC with a 5-10-4 and a 2-2-1 conference record. Over the last three seasons, the Eagles have been near the top of the MCAC. They literally went from the bottom of the standings to the top overnight. The Eagles have defeated the Tigers in each of the last three seasons. The Tigers are hoping to end the streak today, and keep themselves in the hunt for a spot in the conference championships.
Game times today are 1:30 and 4:00 this afternoon.
