NMC 2 - LSSU 1

NMC took a 1-0 lead on a Charlie Needham goal, assisted by Ryan Haworth.  After the Lakers tied the match 1-1 in the second half, the Hawk Owls got the game winner on a 25 yard free kick from Rico Rodriguez.

NMC 0 - FSU 4

Trailing 2-0 at the half, the Hawks Owls hit the post that would have made the score 2-1 and make for a furious finish.  However, the Bulldogs countered immediately to score a goal for a 3-0 lead and took the air out of the Hawks Owls.

NMC 0 - CU JV 4

Hawk Owls dropped a hard fought match at Cornerstone.  After going down 1-0 mid way through the first half, CU scored two late first half goals to pull away.  Noah Withey made a number of great saves in goal and Ryan Haworth, Andrew Bump and Nick Armour played very well in the back line despite the goals. 

NMC 2 - TC 1

NMC Soccer club started the year with a 2-1 win over local TC Hispanic League team.  Going down 1-0, the Hawl Owls battled back on goals from Justin Jensen and Jacob Gordon.
