ABERDEEN, S.D. – After being shut out in six straight contests, the Waldorf College men's soccer team got back on the winning track with a 2-1 victory over Presentation College on Sunday.
"We came out as a team and performed well," Waldorf coach Ryan Martin said. "We had a mental block the past few games and we overcame that, which is a big step for us moving forward."
Waldorf maintained a one-goal advantage until the second period. Terry Kampa connected on the equalizer for the Saints (2-10) in the 62nd minute.
Diego Barrera answered the call for the Warriors. The sophomore midfielder from Denver knocked in the game-winning goal during the 81st minute.
Cristian Carranza allowed Waldorf to maintain its lead in the tight matchup. Carranza, a freshman goalkeeper from Chicago, recorded five saves in the win.
"Cristian had some big saves in net to keep us ahead," Martin said.
Eleven of Waldorf's 18 shots were on goal. Presentation attempted 10 shots, finishing with six on target.
Next Saturday marks the Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference (MCAC) opener for the Warriors as they travel to Conway, Ark. for a 2:30 p.m. matchup against Central Baptist College (6-3-1).
