OCU men defeat KCU 7-2

The men faired well against KCU by beating them 7-2.  The OCU men jumped out early and never looked back by scoring in the 3rd minute and again in the 14th minute.  "This is the third game in a row that we have come out fast and it's good to see as the regular season is coming to a close" mentioned Head Coach Josh Murton.

The scoring for the men came from some unusual names.  Kevin Street, who is the teams center defender, had a hat trick, the first of his career.  "Kevin is a big reason why we have had so much success these past two years.  He's a great soccer player and a great young man.  It was good to see him put a few away today" added Murton.  Also scoring for OCU was Freshman Dave Blamo with 2 goals.  That places him with 16 goals and in the top 5 in the nation.  Dexter Chapman, a sophomore, scored his second goal of the year along with Joel Eckert, a freshman.

The men are now 10-3-0, which ties the record for most wins in a season at OCU, the mark set last year.  OCU now needs to beat Johnson Bible College on Friday to hold at least a share of the Mid-East Region Regular Season title.  Johnson Bible College lost to Crown College tonight 1-3 which could make OCU's game on Saturday against Crown College interesting.  The winner of the regular season gets the #1 seed in the Regional Tournament which will be played at OCU on October 29-31.  The winner of the Regional tournament goes to the National Tournament which is in Kissimee, Fl on November 13-16
