Bluejays eye playoffs

The Tabor College women?s soccer team secured a spot in the top half of the conference standings with a 1-0 win over Bethel Saturday. Adria Whitehorn netted the winner at 10:17, and Aubrey Whitehorn?s eight saves made it stand.

The Bluejays suffered a 3-0 loss to undefeated conference leader Kansas Wesleyan Oct. 28, but, with a home win over Friends today (Nov. 5), Tabor may join KW, Ottawa and McPherson in the regular season top four.

Jessica Burden was selected to the all-conference second team Monday, and Kelly White received honorable mention.

The Tabor men suffered back-to-back 4-goal losses at the hands of Kansas Wesleyan and Bethel.

Bethel found the twine with all four of its shots, twice scoring a pair of goals two minutes apart: an outburst put the Threshers up 2-0 on scores in the 39th and 41st minutes, and Bethel doubled the lead with another spurt 18 minutes into the second half.

Tabor did not score despite putting seven shots on Bethel keeper Brady Coffman?s goal.

Freshman midfielder Liam McLean was named ?freshman of the year? Monday, and also garnered all-conference first-team honors.

Senior forward Silas Hibbs was named to the second team, and Andy Adrian received honorable mention.

Coming?Tabor hosts the Falcons for day games Wednesday. The women are slated to play at 12:30 p.m. and the men follow at 2:30. A win over Friends would vault the Tabor men into fourth place in the KCAC heading into the post-season tournament, which is set to begin Friday.
