CCC men kickers win with stunning comeback

By Steve Sell
September 22, 2019

It has to be one of the most satisfying victories in recent memory for Central Christian College’s men’s soccer team.

The Tigers found themselves down 2-0 to Bethany College in the second half here Saturday night.

But Central flipped the switch with three goals, including the game-winner from Benjamin Barrera with 1:24 left in the game for an exciting 3-2 win.

"What a match. Mentally and emotionally exhausting,” CCC coach Aaron Hoxie said. “I can't remember the last time we came back from a 2-0 deficit. We did it with 21 minutes left, too. 3 goals in that span. I told the boys at halftime to continue to play and press forward, even if we conceded a second goal. Their attitudes were great. I think that today's result is a step forward in their belief in each other Great performances all around.Everyone did their role tonight.The guys off the bench provided a spark and our back line did very well at times to contain their speed and quick counter attacks."

Leslie Feh keyed the comeback as he scored the first two CCC goals, the first at the 68-minute mark and then he scored 4 minutes later. Andres Silva assisted on both goals and Carlos Arias assisted on the winner.

Lisandro Nunez and Kevin Sithole had scored goals for Bethany, which led 1-0 at the half.

CCC, now 3-3-1, dominated the game with a 17-4 advantage in shots.
