Men’s Soccer

On Tuesday, Zach Klindworth did everything he could to help The Master’s College men’s soccer team rally past Concordia. However, even his two-goal second half effort couldn’t offset the Eagles’ strong offense as the Mustangs fell 3-2 in Irvine.

Down but not out, The Mustangs rebounded Saturday afternoon in a 3-0 whipping of Hope International at Reese Field.

The much-needed win snapped a three-match losing streak and gave the Mustangs their first Golden State Athletic Conference victory of the season, improving to 1-3 in conference play and 2-7-1 overall.

In search of their second win in a row, the Mustangs hit the road this Wednesday to play Vanguard at Biola University in La Mirada. Kick off is set for 7 p.m.

Women’s Volleyball

After a promising first set in which The Master’s College volleyball team bested No. 1 Concordia, the Eagles answered back by taking three consecutive games, beating TMC 3-1 on Tuesday.

The Lady Mustangs continued GSAC play Saturday night in a road match against San Diego Christian. At the end of four sets (25-16, 23-25, 25-14, 25-14) No. 13 TMC topped the Hawks 3-1 and raised its 2013 record to 15-4 overall, and 5-2 in conference play.

Sam Dougherty led the 13th-ranked Lady Mustangs in the win with 18 kills while Allison Child followed with 10 more. Aubrey Bekendam tallied 45 assists while Rebeca Peluffo put up 17 digs. Dougherty earned 14 digs and Emily Clark followed with 13.

TMC will now enjoy a nine-day break before returning to Bross Court on Oct. 22 for a non-conference match against West Coast Baptist. First serve is set for 7 p.m.

Women’s Soccer

On a rainy Wednesday afternoon in southern Orange County, 16th-ranked Concordia ended The Master’s College women’s soccer team’s undefeated season with a 4-1 victory.

Looking to rebound from the humbling loss, the 11th-ranked Lady Mustangs took to the pitch at Reese Field on Saturday morning against Hope International.

At the end of 90 minutes, the Lady Mustangs shut out Hope International 2-0 and lifted their 2013 record to 11-1 overall and 3-1 in GSAC play.

On Saturday, TMC’s offense was anchored by consistent play throughout the match as the squad posted thirteen shots and one goal each half. Katie Farris notched her first goal of the season in unassisted fashion at the 31:46 mark. With 30 minutes left to play in the second half, Jordan Benson scored her first goal in conference play off an assist from Devon Goff, putting the match out of reach at 2-0.

Next up for TMC is a road match against No. 6 Vanguard. Kick off will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the campus of Biola University in La Mirada.

Cross Country

The Master’s College men’s and women’s cross country team earned high marks at the Vanguard Invitational on Saturday morning.

TMC’s Hannah Kellerman finished first overall with a time of 17 minutes, 34 seconds on the 5,000-meter course.

Sophomore standout Karis Frankian placed second, only six seconds behind Kellerman with a time of 17:40.90.

The No. 7 Lady Mustangs tied NCAA Division I Loyola Marymount for second out of 18 teams with a total time of 1 hour and 31:58.18 minutes. Saturday’s performance bodes well for the Lady Mustangs as the squad placed second out of the five other competing Golden State Athletic Conference teams (Biola, Vanguard, Concordia, Hope International, and San Diego Christian).

Men’s cross country, who ranks 17th in the NAIA, placed third out of 14 teams with a collective time of 2:10:53.22, and were the top team finishers from the GSAC.

John Hurd placed 11th with a time of 25 minutes and 43.26 seconds for the 8,000 meter course. Tyler Tockstein was second for the Mustangs with a time of 26:07.30, followed by the duo of Matthew Crichton and Michael Sciarra with times of 26:17.57 and 26:19.70, respectively.

The Mustangs get their next challenge when they compete at the West Coast Jamboree hosted by Biola in two weeks on Oct. 26.
