In the first 45 minutes of the Cougars’ 3-1 victory against University of Mobile (Ala.) Saturday, both teams had as much trouble scoring as the youth teams that took the field at halftime.
In the second half, if the No. 14 Rams’ shots weren’t sailing over the goal, they were sinking into goalie Nano Recondo’s waiting hands. That’s when the No. 12 Cougars pounced, scoring three goals in 13 minutes. Marcos Fernandes, Matt Mueller and Mark Wilcox scored for Columbia College, with Mueller and Ivan Navarrete picking up assists.
With the win, the Cougars improved to 3-1. They will travel to St. Louis on Tuesday to take on Harris-Stowe State College.
