  • For the second game in a row the Tiger men were shut out at home while giving up 6 goals to their opponent.
    On Saturday it was the Oklahoma Christian University Eagles, on Wednesday night it was the Tabor College Blue Jays.
    The Blue Jays used a balance attack of three goals in each half to run away from the Tigers 6-0 and improve their win streak to five and their overall record to 5-2.
    For the Tigers the loss was their fourth on the season and their second in a row.
    The Tiger coaching staff made some key changes to their lineup and for the first 20 or 25 minutes of the game, it looked like those changes were the answer to the problems the Tigers have faced in previous games.
    The Tigers hung tough with a very talented Blue Jay team, a team that lost 1-0 to nationally ranked Mid America Nazarene in their first game of the season.
    Unfortunately about 25 minutes into the first half, the Blue Jays got on the score board on a cross from the right side of the field.
     As the ball bounced across the 6 yard box, a Tiger defender tried to clear the ball, but deflected it past a diving Alex Akrawi into the back of the net. After the own goal, the wind seemed to fall out of the Tigers' sails, and from then on it was all Blue Jays.
    With each game, these young Tigers are gaining more experience. The talent is there, but it is clear they are still adjusting to the speed and physicality of the college game.
    They hope to turn things around this weekend when they travel to play Sterling College on Saturday at 3 pm.
