The Tabor soccer teams met with disappointing defeats to start their season, being swept by Central Methodist University at home Saturday.

Men?s team. The Bluejays started strong against Central Methodist in what would turn out to be a very competitive game.

Tabor scored first, with freshman Marlan Saar driving the ball into the net with 33:29 left in the half.

The Eagles scored next, but Bluejay mainstay David Simmet started a scoring spurt with a goal at the 30:31 mark of the first half to put Tabor ahead, 2-1.

Jordan Maska hammered in another goal a minute later to give Tabor a 3-1 lead, then drove the ball in off the keeper?s hands to give home team a 4-2 lead going into the half.

But the Eagles rallied in the second half of the game, scoring three goals while holding Tabor scoreless for a 5-4 victory.

Tabor is scheduled to play at home Saturday versus York (Neb.) College, beginning at 5 p.m.

Women?s team. Central Methodist dominated the Bluejays in their opener, 5-0.

The Eagles scored two goals in the first half and three in the second.

Jessica Renzelman did manage three shots on the goal for Tabor and Megan Beals attempted two.

The Bluejays will get a chance at redemption Saturday when they take on York College at home at 3 p.m.
