The Men’s Soccer team defeated the visiting team from Cuyahoga Community College, 6-2 to open Region XII play.
Tri-C scored the first goal of the game, but Bright Olaoni (UK) won a PK and Jake Wright (UK) put it in to tie the score at 1-1. MCC scored off a corner kick with Austin Hall (UK) hitting the top right corner for the 2-1 lead at the half. Isaac Saavedra (Dowagiac Union HS) made it 3-1 with an assist to Adrian Tamargo (West Ottawa HS), but Cuyahoga took advantage of a bad pass in front of the goal to pull close. After that it was all MCC with goals from Olaoni, Caue Oliveria (Brazil) and Wright.
“We were dominant in possession and outshot the opponents 14-6,” said Head Coach Sam Felicioni.
MCC is now 1-1 on the season. They return to action on Wednesday, 9/7 with a home contest vs. Schoolcraft College at 2:00 pm.
