The Warriors were looking to continue the momentum from last weeks win over Barclay College when they faced Union College Tuesday night in Lincoln, Nebraska. Instead, the Warriors came up short losing 0-2. Calvary started the game strong. They created a few good scoring opportunities in the opening minutes of the game, almost taking an early lead with a shot on a goal by Noah Wittenbach. “We battled and fought very hard in the first half,” said Coach Daniel Nichols. “We especially did a good job transitioning the ball from defense to offense.” Union College took a 1-0 lead over Calvary scoring off a rebound in the 25th minute.
The Warriors had a strong start to the second half once again. Despite creating good scoring opportunities, the Warriors were unable to find the back of the net. Calvary’s limited bench played a factor in the second half, with Union getting strong play from their bench in the second half. Union scored their second goal of the game off of an intercepted pass extending the lead to 0-2. “I was really encouraged by the effort that the guys put forth tonight.” Coach Nichols said.
Calvary will look to rebound this Friday at home against Nebraska Christian College.
