Powell and the rest of the Patriots kept Cincinnati Christian (Ohio) off the scoreboard as they defeated the Golden Eagles 5-0. Then on Saturday, Powell preserved his fifth shutout of the season in a 1-0 win against Oakland City University. Powell kept the Mighty Oaks off the scoreboard while recording five saves in 90 minutes in goal. The senior goalkeeper ranks second in the Mid-South allowing just one goal a game.
