The Sterling College Warriors men’s soccer team hosted the Tabor College Bluejays Wednesday and won 3-0.

Head coach Nic Martinez had positive things to say about the team and their win.

“I feel like we played pretty well,” he said. “It’s probably one of the games where we actually played as a team and everything, which is a good time to do it since we’re going into conference and everything. I just feel like now going into the rest of the conference I feel comfortable now.”

The Warriors made a point early on in the first half of the game and held it until the end of the second half by earning two more points.

Sterling College sophomore midfielder Muhamad Alubaidi thinks they played well and wants to improve upon their success.

“We kept pressing down on the gas pedal and goin’,” he said. “I feel like that’s the mentality you should have goin’ into every game. Move the ball around, keep our heads, and keep our composure, and finish ‘em off in the second half instead of letting down. It’s hard but always keep your head up and be positive with your teammates.”

On Saturday, the Sterling College Warriors lost to the Oklahoma Wesleyan University Eagles 4-0 in Bartlesville, Okla.
