McPherson College’s men’s soccer team improved to 2-0 in the KCAC on Saturday, while the women evened their record at 1-1 as it was a clean sweep of Tabor for the Bulldogs.

• Mac men 3, Tabor 1 — The Bulldogs have now outscored their first two KCAC opponents by a score of 7-1.

Mac improved to 3-4 overall as it had to overcome an early 1-0 deficit.

Goals for the Bulldogs were by Greg Roller, Hernan Maldonado and Jared Robbins. Robbins’ goal was a PK.

Mac had a 15-6 advantage in shots, including a wide 9-3 margin on corner kicks.

“We had some really good moments in possession today in a game that we completely dictated," Mac coach Doug Quint said. "Our movement was good and we created a lot of nice chances. Overall, it was a good performance from us and another key three points."

The Bulldogs have a tough road match coming up on Wednesday when they play at Friends.

• Mac women 2, Tabor 0 — A goal in each half provided the Bulldogs with their first KCAC win and they improved to 4-3 overall.

Juliana Munoz, assisted by Ana Guerrero, gave the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead and Guerrero turned scorer late in the game when he received a pass from Munoz as the duo worked some magic throughout the day.

Christie Silber recorded the victory with a clean sheet in goal.

“I'm very pleased with today's result," Mac coach Mark Olson said. "Once again, the team responds well following a loss. It was great to have Ana back after being out for the week due to a concussion. Ana and Juliana combined well assisting on each other's goals. Today's result was a reflection of our team getting back to our style of play. I have been very pleased with the consistency of our back four and goalkeeper as we added another shutout to the year."

The Bulldogs play Wednesday at Friends.
