COLUMBIA — In the 10th minute of the Columbia College men's soccer game, Dordt College from Sioux Center, Iowa scored a goal to put the team up 1-0.
After the score, the Cougars changed their attitude and stepped up their game.
"We woke up after they scored that goal," forward Rafael Ramos said. "We started to play hard after about 20 minutes."
Ramos answered the first goal with a goal of his own in the 37th minute for the 2-1 victory for Columbia College.
Columbia College coach John Klein was a little disappointed with the how the game went for the Cougars.
"We did just enough today, and I didn't like it," Klein said. "We've been behind early before, and I think we should have learned from that by now."
Still, the Columbia men's soccer team remains undefeated on the year with its record now at 10-0-3.
The Cougars are scheduled to play an American Midwestern Conference match at 7 p.m. Tuesday at William Woods University
