Busy day for CCC teams

It is a busy weekend for the fall sports teams at Central Christian College as five of the seven are in action — three on the road and two at home.

On the road will be the men's and women's golf teams and the volleyball team. 

The Tiger golfers are heading to Emporia where the men will be playing a triangular with Haskell Indian Nations University and Coffeyville Community College. The Tiger women are just playing a dual with Coffeyville. Four of the five golfers on the men's squad are freshmen, as are three of the four women. They are inexperienced but talented, and have practiced well in the last two weeks leading up to their fall opener.

Fresh off a sweep of Union College on Thursday, the Lady Tiger spikers are in Omaha for a triangular with Grace University and Dakota Wesleyan University. The Lady Tigers will take on Grace at 1:00 and then play DWU at 3:00. Grace is a familiar foe for the Lady Tigers, as they faced the Royals last season at home, falling to them in five sets on Senior Night.  DWU will be a fresh face for the CCC ladies, having not faced the Tigers in recent memory.

The CCC men's and women's soccer teams open up their seasons at home today against Presentation College. The women take the field first at 3:00, followed by the men at 5:00. Presentation played Friday at Bethany, with the Swede men winning 4-0 while the Presentation women were a 1-0 winner.

LINDSBORG — Bethany College’s men’s soccer team scored two goals in each half Friday to deal Presentation College of South Dakota a 4-0 setback.

Four different Swedes scored — Trevor Kistler, Luis Fernando Pinto, Christopher Telemoque and Phillip Crowell.

Jose Sanchez came up with the shutout, turning back three attempts.

“Presentation played very hard throughout the game and we played better tonight than our first game out,” Bethany coach Shane Taylor said. “We had more time in the midfield than we did last Saturday, we were more comfortable and started some attacks to score some goals today. I think we played as well as we could have played today and I'm pretty happy with our performance from the back all the way up to the front. Jose Sanchez made saves we needed him to make and I thought we were more organized tonight than our first game."

Bethany, now 1-1, hosts Southwestern Christian on Tuesday.

• PRESENTATION WOMEN 1, BETHANY 0 — Jamie Harlan’s first-half goal for Presentation decided the outcome.

Erica Schramm had four saves for Bethany, which actually had a 15-8 advantage in shots.

“Tonight we were tested in a different manner than our game last week,” BC coach John Markey said. “Having most of the possession of the ball we struggled to find the back of the net. The girls made every effort possible towards the end of the game to even the score, but luck was not on our side. I was especially proud of Arianna Anaya, who had a great game individually despite the outcome."

Bethany, 0-2, plays Friday at Culver-Stockton.
