McPherson College men’s soccer coach Doug Quint didn’t mince words after his Bulldogs were blanked 3-0 here Saturday by University of Science and Arts.
“We were awful today and need to regroup," Quint said.
It was a matchup of nationally ranked teams, as the Drovers were No. 18 in the country and Mac No. 24, though after an 0-2 start the Bulldogs most likely will be dropped from the upcoming poll.
The Drovers scored two goals in the first five minutes before the Bulldogs settled down to play on relatively even terms.
Mac was able to get off 12 shots, four on goal. Arthur Lamparter took the loss as he gave up the two early scores, then Aaron Parrott came on after halftime and permitted the other.
The Bulldogs are home Wednesday to take on another strong team, St. Gregory’s of Oklahoma, at 7:30 p.m.
• University of Science and Arts women 2, McPherson College 0 — The Lady Drovers also entered the night ranked as they are No. 19.
“Our ladies battled hard today and I was pleased with us defensively," Quint said. "Unfortunately, we created some unnecessary adversity for ourselves and need to be more disciplined."
The Lady Drovers scored a goal in each half and basically controlled the action. Mac was able to click off only three shots on goal.
Sheryl Evans had a nice game in goal for the Bulldogs with 14 saves as she was under siege by the ball-control Drovers.
The Bulldog women go to Omaha on Monday to play Grace University.
