Even though the first two games of the season didn’t show it, McPherson College men’s soccer coach Doug Quint has maintained that this is one of the most talented Bulldog teams during his long tenure.

The Bulldogs proved their coach prophetic here Saturday by upsetting 19th-ranked Midland University, 1-0.

“This was a solid performance on both sides of the ball today," Quint said. "The only knock I have is we've got to finish. To create 27 chances and only score one goal is something we will improve on. Overall, it was a good performance for us."

It turned out the game was decided in the first two minutes when German import Alex Ronnburg knocked through a Mac goal that stood for the rest of the game.

Mac controlled the ball with a 27-7 advantage in shots, with eight of them by Oscar Cortez and four by Nick Torres. Aaron Parrott made three saves in goal for Mac.

The Bulldogs, now 1-2, host city rival Central Christian College at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
