On Tuesday night the Patriots traveled to Lindsey Wilson College to battle the #2 Blue Raiders under the lights.
The upset minded Patriots knew that they were in for a tough match with the nine time defending national champions and felt that they were up for the test. After a tough start Marvin Wesselburg (Essen, Germany) shot a laser at the Blue Raider net that was stopped just short by the Blue Raider keeper. With the Raiders pulling away the Patriots kept their intensity, matching the tempo of the Blue Raiders. In fact, CJ Powell led the spark for the Patriots all night with his brilliant play in net. Compiling a season high 12 saves the Patriot keeper displayed his never die attitude as he was able to make athletic plays on every ball. Unable to get shots to land the Patriots never could close the gap.
The Patriots return to the Barber Soccer Complex Friday at 7 PM against conference foe Georgetown College in their breast cancer awareness game. Come out, wear pink, and support the Patriots!
