Siloam Springs, Ark. (Sept. 12, 2017) – Trying to rebound off a string of three straight one-goal losses, Central Baptist College men's soccer returned to pitch tonight for a match with in-state rival John Brown. The Mustangs (0-5) were able to draw with the Eagles (2-3) in the first half, but allowed five second half goals in route to a 5-0 defeat.
"We played extremely well all game," said head coach Taylor Carnahan. "They executed perfectly. Once the first goal came, we had to get higher pressure and that caused gaps and they exposed the gaps. We look to take the positives of our midfield rotation, combining up the field and defensive discipline into our first conference match on Saturday."
CBC attempted 10 shots in the game, with four by Callum Morris (SR/Leicester, England). Cobi Johnson (SO/Vilonia, Ark.) was able to direct a shot toward goal that was saved by John Brown's keeper. Bryce Deaton (SR/Bathurst, Austrailia) made three saves for the Mustangs, as they were able to take momentum away from this game.
Next up for CBC is their American Midwest Conference opener on Saturday at 2 p.m. against Park University in Parkville, Mo.
