ATCHINSON, KAN. – The Sterling College Warriors traveled to Atchinson, Kansas over the weekend, to take on the No. 15 Bendictine College Ravens. The Warriors battled early throughout, but were unable to match the offensive surge from the Ravens, falling 6-1.

Looking to strike first, Sterling had an early chance at a goal, as Adriano Marques had a shot just saved by the Benedictine keeper. The Ravens then took the early advantage, scoring in the 15th minute to take a 1-0 lead. Benedictine continued to rally off shots against Sterling, as Joel Chavez would make strong plays in goal to keep the Ravens from adding to their lead. Throughout the half, Sterling struggled to find opportunities on offense, as the Benedictine had a 17-2 shot advantage early in the match. With time running out, the Ravens would add another goal late in the half to take a 2-0 lead into the break.

In the second half, Benedictine continued their offensive rhythm, taking 18 more shots in the match. The Ravens would add a third goal to start the second half to make it 3-1, but the Warriors responded with a goal of their own, as Youssef Mourchid found the back of the net to make it 3-1. With a sense of momentum, Sterling continued to create opportunities, with shots on goal from Jaime Diaz and Johnathan Carcamo, but the Benedictine defense would hold firm throughout the half. The Ravens would add three more goals in the second half on their way to handing Sterling a 6-1 loss.

Five different Warriors had shots in the match on Saturday, while Joel Chavez had 11 saves in the match.

Sterling (0-3,0-0) travels to Muskogee, Oklahoma to take on the Bacone College Warriors on Wednesday, September 13th at 7:30 p.m.
