The men’s soccer team travelled to North Carolina to play Mid-Atlantic Christian University for their last game of the season. Coming off of a defeat against Valley Forge, the Knights were determined to end their season with a win.
Much of the game was dominated by the Knights. The scoring started midway through the first half, when Zach Morrill found Kyle Vargas in the box, who knocked it in for the first score of the game. Moments later, Taylor Martin fired a bouncing ball into the upper corner of the goal, to make it 2-0.
Before the end of the first half, the Knights scored again. Trevor Holderegger (right) found some space in the box and headed in a corner kick from Dylan Kleintop. That was Holderegger’s first goal of the season. The Knights went into the break with a 3-0 lead.
Early in the second half, goalkeeper Trey Linnane had to be substituted due to injury. The Knights Coach Doug Fisher elected to send in Derrick Miller as the goalie. It was his first appearance in goal, because he played left wing for the Knights all season.
Halfway through the second half, the Knights extended their lead to 4-0, when Martin found Morrill on a through ball. Morrill beat the keeper and scored his fourth of the season. Mid Atlantic added three late goals, giving Central Penn a scare, but Knights held on to their lead to seal the victory.
Although the team may have missed the National Tournament, it is still worth noting that they had their second winning season in a row, finishing 6-4-1.
