Men Fall to ONU
The Crimson Wave men’s soccer team fell to the Olivet Nazarene University Tigers 2-1 on Saturday. It was a tough break for the men’s team as they continue to search for conference points. The men are now 4-10-1 and 1-6-1 in the CCAC.
“Tough loss for us at home. ONU’s defense was very good and we couldn’t generate enough attack. We had some chances in the second half as we started to gain some momentum. We had a brilliant goal to chip away at the lead but couldn’t find that equalizer. I was proud of our team a whole for fighting back. We still have a chance at making the tournament but now we have to get points,” said Coach Olson.
The lone goal for the Crimson Wave came when senior Emmanuel Awuku played a ball back to Kyle Uzubell who blasted a shot that went upper ninety. The men began to rally at the end but the ONU defense stayed strong as the Crimson Wave couldn’t find that equalizing goal.
The men’s team will return to action on Wednesday when the host Trinity Christian at 7:00pm. The game will be played at East Chicago Central High School.
Men Stay Even With TIU
The Crimson Wave men’s soccer team tied Trinity International University 3-3 in a thrilling double overtime matchup. The men’s team is now 1-4-1 in the CCAC.
“We went into halftime down 3-0 and talked about execution and weathering the storm. The game seemed to be slipping away from us as TIU had a lot of momentum. We had a great start to the second half getting the first few shots on goal. We earned a penalty kick which we finished which gave us that spark we needed. We found our second wind and were able to string together two more goals to get that much needed point. I’m very proud of how our team never gave up,” said Coach Olson.
Emmanuel Awuku earned the first goal for the Crimson Wave as he capitalized on a penalty kick. Next, Stewart Thur took the ball down the left flank and slotted one over the TIU defense where Nick Barango was able to finish for the second goal. In the 74th minute, Byron Cipa would play one through the space to Nick Barango who would score his second goal of the game.
The men’s team will now have a three game home stretch where they look to string together some wins in this final part of the conference season. CCSJ will host St. Xavier University on Tuesday night at 7:00pm. Game will be played at East Chicago Central High School.
Men Fall to Judson
The Crimson Wave men’s soccer tell fell to Judson University on Saturday evening. CCSJ scored two goals but it wasn’t enough to stop the Judson attack. Byron Cipa got on the board first after a great cross from Nick Barango. The second goal for CCSJ came in the second half when Nick Barango beat the Judson defense and tucked the ball into the corner.
“This was a tough result for us. I was very happy with how we started the game. Our energy was high and we were able to get an early goal. Judson did a good job of keeping the field wide and just need to tighten some things up. We came back strong after a bad loss last season and I expect nothing less heading into the rest of this conference season,” said Coach Olson.
The men’s team will return to action on Wednesday evening when they host cross-town rival Purdue University-Calumet at 7:00pm. Game will be played at East Chicago Central High School.
