Men’s Soccer

The men’s soccer team did not quite get the outcome they would have liked during their homecoming game as they lost to Randolph-Macon 2-1 in overtime. The team scored first on a goal by sophomore mid-field Daniel Obour, but Randolph-Macon played solid defense the rest of the way.

Fortunately, the team picked up a key ODAC victory against Bridgewater College last night. They won 4-3 in double overtime. The team is now 9-5 on the season and 3-4 in the ODAC. They will take on Roanoke College (11-4-1, 6-1 ODAC) for Senior Recognition Night on Saturday, Oct. 21.

Women’s Soccer

The women’s soccer team took a loss on their Senior Recognition Night as they fell to Emory & Henry 2-0. The team was able to come back from their loss to defeat Hollins University 7-0 Tuesday night. The team is 5-7-2 on the season and 3-4 in the ODAC. The team’s next game will be Oct. 21 at Randolph College (3-9-2, 1-6-1 ODAC).
