TC men, women lose by one goal

The Tabor College men?s soccer team (1-3) dueled University of the Ozarks for 98 scoreless minutes Sept. 15, but came up on the short end of a 1-0 final score.

?Our defense had another excellent effort, but we were unable to capitalize on our opportunities,? coach Grant Brubacher said.

?The men played their best match of the season so far, and we need to continue to build off of it,? he noted.

For the women, Brubacher had nine reasons to be optimistic after the team?s third one-goal loss in the first four games of the season.

The women (0-4) dropped a 2-1 heartbreaker to the University of the Ozarks Monday afternoon in Clarksville, Ark., but posted nine shots on goal, including the first one.

Tabor got off to a fast start as senior Joanna Pyle finished off a play made by Jessica Burden in the second minute of action.

The Bluejays led 1-0 until Ozarks scored in the 34th minute. Ozarks scored the differencemaker in the second half.

?We need to continue to improve in all aspects of the game in order to win consistently, Brubacher said.

Coming?Both teams play at Sept. 24 at home against Oklahoma Wesleyan University. Both visit William Wood (Mo.) Sept. 29 and both host Saint Mary the afternoon of Oct. 4 in Hillsboro.
