The Golden Eagles men's soccer team
remain unbeaten in conference play by getting the 3-0 win over the Western Nebraska Community College Cougars on Oct. 3 at LCCC.
It was a cold and windy day, and it took the Golden Eagles awhile to warm up. LCCC’s Wyatt Witty scored the lone goal of the half in the 26th minute off an assist from Dimitri Sofias. In the second half the teams had to battle windy conditions. LCCC had many chances to score but couldn’t put the ball away. In the 70th minute, Dewey Rodgers scored from about 35 yards out to put LCCC up by two goals. In the 85th minute, Gleydson Neri dribbled though the Cougars' defense and passed the ball to Fernando Perez for the third and final goal. LCCC goalkeeper Daniel Ainsworth and the Golden Eagle defense recorded their second shutout of the season.
