The men’s soccer team played the Harper College Hawks on Wednesday, Sept. 16.  The first half of the game was evenly matched with Harper College scoring only one goal, but the second half was dominated by the Hawks, who had 16 shots on goal compared to the Stormers two shots on goal. One highlight for the Stormers came when Sebastian Avila assisted by Jacob West scored the only Stormers goal in the second half. Stormers lost 1-5.

Gooooaal! Stormers defender Sebastian Avila (not shown) breaks through goalkeeper Matthew Wiklanski (1) defenses and scores in the second half of the Sept. 16 game against Harper College.

Halfway through the season, the men’s soccer team is struggling to find their groove. The team has been able to score on a few teams, but has not been able to clinch a victory. If you have watched a game recently, it is obvious that our men are dedicated, talented players and tough competitors. This gets one to thinking, are the other teams that much better, or is it something else?

With a current record of 0 - 7 as of press time, men’s soccer Head Coach Hewerton Moreira has his work cut out for him.

That something else could be that other teams have more players on their team. For those that don’t know, soccer is played on a field (pitch) in two 45-minute halves. The pitch is 100 yards long and up to 80 yards wide. Many teams competing with MATC have deeper rosters to work with. This allows coaches to be more selective with their starting lineup, as well as allowing their players more breaks, which keeps them refreshed. MATC players do not always have that luxury.

Not making excuses mind you, just pointing out facts. Just because there are not a lot of games in the win column doesn’t mean we don’t have a great team. As the weather cools down and with half the season left to play, there is still time for our Stormers to bring the heat to their competition.
