STERLING — McPherson College’s men’s soccer team continued its relentless pursuit for a KCAC championship on Saturday by pounding Sterling 6-0, five of the goals coming during a perfect storm of a first half.

“Definitely was a nice win for us today," said Mac coach Doug Quint, whose team is 6-0-1 in the KCAC with games remaining against Southwestern and Bethany. "We were clinical in front of goal in the first half, but moved the ball better in the second. We got a lot of guys time today which is always nice. Now we have a week to get some guys healthy and prepare for Southwestern."

Six different Bulldogs scored — Kevin Ndongo, Alex Ronneburg, Kevin Aka, Tito Ruiz, Jose Anguio and Trent Keller. Nick Torres, the reigning KCAC Offensive Player of the Week, assisted on two of the goals, while other assists were by Ronneburg, Ruiz and Oscar Cortez.

Tanner Horton, the reigning KCAC Defensive Player of the Week, was in goal during the first half and Andrew White finished up. White had to make the only save since Mac dominated the action.

The Bulldogs are now 9-3-2 overall.

• Sterling women 3, Mac 1 — The Bulldogs gave up a late first-half goal to the Warriors to trail 2-1, then gave up another goal in the second half.

The only Mac goal was by Cyndey Lewis.

The Bulldogs are now 2-5 in the KCAC and 4-11-1 overall. They need to win one of their final two matches to have a shot at postseason play. They host Southwestern on Saturday, a team just above them in the standings.
