BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — Just who invited Oklahoma Wesleyan to join the KCAC anyway?

The Eagles, in their first year in the KCAC, have made an immediate impact in men’s soccer as they are the No. 2-ranked team in the country. They showed longtime KCAC power McPherson College why on Wednesday with a 5-0 win.

Wesleyan jumped out to a 4-0 halftime lead. Arthur Lamparter came on in goal in the second half for Mac and gave up just one score.

Mac did get off nine shots, including four by Nick Torres.

The Bulldogs are now 3-3 in the KCAC and 6-8 overall. They host Ottawa on Saturday, with game time 3 p.m. at The Kennel, the grass field to the east of the turfed stadium.

The Eagles are 6-0 in the KCAC, 13-1 overall.

• Oklahoma Wesleyan women 5, Mac 0 — It was the same story in the women’s game as the Bulldogs are now 4-2 in the KCAC and 8-5 overall.

It was only 1-0 at the half before the Eagles flexed their wings and started to fly. The Bulldogs did have eight shots, but couldn’t find the net.

The Eagles, ranked No. 21 in the country, are now 6-0 in the KCAC, 11-1-1 overall.

Mac hosts Ottawa on Saturday for Senior Day, with match time 12:30 p.m. The Braves are the No. 2 team in the conference behind Oklahoma Wesleyan.
