The Sterling College Warriors men’s soccer team hosted the Avila University Eagles on Wednesday and lost 2-1 in overtime. On Saturday, they traveled to Winfield to play the Southwestern College Moundbuilders and tied 0-0.

Coach Adriano Marques praises the team’s ability to remain strong and positive despite their tough season.

“I feel extremely proud of their resilience and dedication, day in and day out, hitting the pitch no matter the result of the previous fixture,” Marques said. “Unfortunately, we’ve had a little bumpy season but they haven’t lost focus on the goal all season and the coaching staff appreciates that immensely.”

Of all the games Sterling has played this year, they have won four, lost ten, and tied two.

“The things I feel that we are doing right, or better I should say, this season compare to previous ones is our communication on the pitch,” said Marques. “One of our greatest assets is our work ethic. The boys leave their hearts on the pitch every practice and every game no matter the score line.”

The Sterling College Warriors men’s soccer team will play the Kansas Wesleyan University Coyotes in Salina on Tuesday.
