Men’s soccer defeats Bruins for first win

On Oct. 16 the Wildcats received their second win of the season against George Fox with a score of 2-1. After losing Oct. 14 against Pacific with a score of 2-0, the Wildcats didn’t let that discourage them and achieved their goal of winning another game.

“[The] score didn’t really reflect how well we played that game,” freshman Grant Loriaux said about the Oct. 14 game against Pacific.

The Wildcats were able to play good possession throughout the game, but were “not getting good opportunities.”

They didn’t let this get their hopes down, however, and continued on to the Oct. 16 game with a better outlook on the game.

“Everyone felt like we were going to win because we were playing so well,” Loriaux said.

The Wildcats were able to score the first goal, but were tied when half time came around. They didn’t let this discourage them, and as the minutes began to tick away, they scored another goal. Playing possession and defense after scoring the second goal, the Wildcats were able to successfully keep the ball away from the other team, and were then able to score another win for the team.

“Everyone was really happy,” Loriaux said about the Wildcats’ win after a streak of nine losses and one tie. “It was weird [to win again].”

After winning this game, the Wildcats’ have gained their confidence back and hope to continue their winning streak and making more goals. The next game is a home game Oct. 22 against Puget Sound.

“Hopefully we can keep it going,” Loriaux said.
