Patrick McCauley ’19- Staff Writer-  Today, the Little Giants suffered another tough loss to Oberlin College. At this point in the season, the team is looking to gain three more points to solidify a spot in the NCAC tournament.

Guys were focused going into the match and ready to play. Specifically, team captain Corey Sims ’19 controlled the middle of the field while Michael Tanchevski ’20 performed well on the attack. Overall, the team attempted 16 shots and took 7 corner kicks. The aggressive play is evident, and there is still a chance for them to bounce back. “We still control our own destiny,” Keith Owen ’20 said. This is the type of mindset Little Giants are known to bring after a painful loss.

This upcoming week gives the squad more opportunities. On Wednesday, the team looks at “the school-that-must-not-be-named” down south (Depauw University). The Tigers are 5-5-4 overall and are coming off an excruciating defeat against Kenyon College. On Saturday, the Little Giants will take on The College of Wooster. The Fighting Scots are 6-9-1 overall and will give the Little Giants another chance to gain those tournament points. Come out support Men’s Soccer this week as they continue their fight for a tournament position.
