CINCINNATI, OH & MUSKEGEON, MI â€“ Despite losing to Cincinnati State Technical and Community College on Friday, the Chargers bounced back Sunday, with a conference win over Muskegon Community College.
Ancilla generated quality scoring chances against the Surge of Cincinnati State, but were unable to take advantage. Outscoring the Chargers 3-0, Cincinnati State clinched the number one seed in the NJCAA Region XII tournament. Defeating Muskegon Community College improved Ancillaâ€™s Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) record to 5-2, bringing them to a first place tie in the conference with the Jayhawks. The only goal of that game came from the Chargersâ€™ Dominic Harris in the 69th minute.
â€śIâ€™m very proud of the way my team played this weekend. I wish we had been more effective against Cincinnati State, but they played tough. I hope the victory over Muskegon gives the team a boost of confidence as we prepare for our next game,â€ť noted Ancilla coach Adam Hall.
The Chargers will host Jackson College, Saturday, October 26 at 1:00 p.m. It is an important game for Ancilla as they have the possibility of claiming sole possession of first place in the MCCAA conference.
