State Fair Roadrunners Post 5-0 Shutout at Home Over Mo Valley
SFCC kept their momentum going when they hosted Missouri Valley College in Sedalia. SFCC emerged with a 5-0 shutout on Sept. 21.
“It was actually one of the most complete games that we have played,” said head coach Jaime Beltran. “We played the full 90 minutes. We did the job defensively. I was able to get many of our guys in the game, and we took care of business. The guys that came in the game late maintained the shutout.”
SFCC scored a goal with about eight minutes left in the opening half from freshman defender Hunter Crowden, courtesy of a pass from freshman forward Lesia Thetsane.
Sophomore forward Aaron La Paz scored with less than five minutes remaining in the opening half off a pass from freshman midfielder Vasbert Ledger. Crowden scored his second goal when he beat the Missouri Valley goalkeeper on a one-on-one opportunity to put his team ahead 3-0. Sophomore forward Mako Makoanyone assisted with the goal.
In the second half, La Paz tucked the ball in the far corner of the net with about 21 minutes remaining. It was his second goal of the match. Freshman forward Lesia Thetsane finished the scoring off a combination play with less than 20 minutes left. Ledger recorded his second assist of the match.
Freshman goalkeeper Landon Dove and fellow freshman goalkeeper Joshua Kunkelman combined in the net for the shutout.
