In their ninth game of the season, the men’s soccer team earned their first win defeating Barclay on the road by a score of 2-1. The Warriors had lost by only one point in three previous games, and Coach Daniel Nichols believed that his team was on the way to victory in Haviland.

The team will head west to Barclay again for the Midwest Christian College Conference Tournament in two weeks. In the meantime, they have a home game on Tuesday, October 16 against Kansas Christian and a road trip to Manhattan Christian on October 18. Please pray for safety as they travel and compete.
One of the places where Calvary’s increased enrollment is most visible is the soccer field. In the past, there were years when we wondered if there would even be enough players to have a team. This year we actually have substitutes for players who need a break or get injured. What a blessing! At this point, the Warriors are still seeking their first win of the season, but Coach Daniel Nichols is seeing improvements in each game. On Tuesday, the team plays at home (613 W Mill, Belton, MO) against Ozark Christian at 4:00 p.m. I know that they would appreciate your support.
