Five different Braves scored in Tuesday’s home shutout win to open conference play.
The Ottawa University men’s soccer team scored all five goals of the 5-0 victory against Sterling College in the second half.
Lewis Verdouw, senior midfielder, opened up scoring with a goal at the less than four minutes into the second half. Verdouw then assisted teammate Aaron Kavanah, senior forward, for OU’s second goal at the 57:59 mark.
The Braves then scored three goals in less than six minutes. Johnathan Rawayo scored off a free kick at the 64:43 mark. Nate Johnson, junior defender, was assisted on a corner kick by Christian Angulo, senior midfielder, for a goal at the 66:45 mark. Angulo then scored a goal of his own off a penalty kick at the 70:10 mark.
John Avalos, junior goalkeeper, helped keep Sterling off the board with six saves.
The Warriors outshot OU 20-14, but the Braves had an 11-6 advantage in shots-on-goal.
With its record back at .500, Ottawa (3-3-1, 1-0 Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference) looks to keep rolling 7:30 p.m. Saturday at home against York College.
