This year’s men’s soccer team was talented and strong. Although they didn’t get as far in the playoffs as they wanted, they were still able to boast one of the program’s best records along with a co-conference championship.
The Cyclones have a target on their back, and everyone wants a piece. Waubonsee Community College was on that bandwagon last night in their long-awaited rematch from last season’s region final. The Cyclones avenged themselves in the 2-1 victory.
Before their season opener Aug. 25, the Cyclones knew their first games on the road would set the tone for the rest of the year. So far so good. They won their first match 2-1 over Lincoln Land Community College.
A penalty kick was the lone culprit separating the Cyclone men’s soccer team from a long-desired trip to the national tournament last season. Plenty of players return this year from that talented squad hoping to avenge themselves and repeat with a top region record.
