Cornerstone 5, nmc 0:

Team struggled to score goals with numerous scoring opportunities, while Cornerstone converted their opportunties. The final score does not reflect that NMC controlled much of possession and attacked often, but some defensive mistakes were converted into goals by Cornerstone.

NMC 3, LSSU 2:

Levi Main's scored the winner with 10 minutes remaining on an asset from Justin Jensen.  Miguel Alverado and Garret Koss scored the other goals with assists credited to Jack Dulude and Ed Smith.  Hawks Owls center defense of Lucas Monroe, Andrew Bump, Ed Smith and Cole DeMoulipied played strong to stop a number of Laker attacks. 

FSU 3, NMC 2: 

Hawk Owls dropped a close match 3-2 against Ferris State University Soccer Club.  Going down 1-0 early, Ed Smith scored on an assist from Rico Rodriguez for a 1-1 score.  FSU went ahead on a penalty kick and pulled ahead 3-1 on another goal, before Miguel Alvarado scored to make it 3-2.  Assist went to Eddie Villagomez. 

NMC 3, LSSU 0:

One goal and two assists by Ed Smith led NMC over Lake Superior State Club Soccer.  Rico Rodriguez had 1 goal and 1 assist, while Hugo Rico had the final goal.  Outstanding defense from Nate Scriber, Charley Needham, Greg Greico, and others assisted Burke Copeland in earning the shutout.

UM Flint 5, NMC 1:

NMC Soccer Club dropped their first match 5-1 to University of Michigan Flint. The Hawk Owls got off to a slow start, falling behind 2-0 early before settling in. Down 2-0 at the half, NMC gave up two more early goals in the second half, before Eddie Villagomez scored a goal, assisted by Charley Needham. NMC could have cut the lead in half, but the UM Flint goalkeeper made a save on a penalty kick.
