As the days become shorter and colder, the action is just starting to heat up for the Colorado College Men’s Soccer team. The Tigers enter the SCAC tournament with a record of 14-3-2 and are coming off an entertaining 2-1 win against Centenary College.
The Tigers took a lead late in the first half with a first collegiate goal from Connor Rademacher. Stu Beezley added a second goal early in the second half, and the Tigers held on to win their final regular season game. After a rough patch in the middle of their season, the Tigers have rattled off three straight wins on the road to the SCAC tournament.
The losses to Trinity and the consecutive away ties had made the possibility of a NCAA tournament slim. The Tigers have dropped to 6th in their region, but their recent revival has also revived their tournament hopes. The Tigers have remained focused through their ups and downs this year.
They remain committed to excellence in practice, knowing that good training sessions will translate to good performances on the pitch. “It has been high tempo,” said freshman Sam Block, describing one of this week’s training sessions in a recent interview. “Everyone is really focused on getting better and you can see our confidence growing day by day.”
The Tigers are now set to play the winner of the Schreiner-Southwestern game on Saturday, both teams the Tigers have played and beaten. The final is on Sunday so wish your Tigers luck before they set off to make their dreams reality.
