Men's Soccer - Mon, Sep. 26, 2011

McPherson, Kan. - The Tabor College men's soccer team extended its winning streak to three games Saturday night in McPherson, Kan. as the Bluejays shutout Central Christian College by the score of 3-0.


The shutout was the Bluejays second straight as Tabor has now won six of its past seven games.


The Bluejays wasted little time getting on the scoreboard first as freshman Jordan Maska scored the only goal of the first half with just over 11 minutes gone  in the match to give Tabor the early 1-0 lead. The goal was Maska's team-leading fifth of the season and was assisted on by senior Rafael Marins.


In the second half Tabor would continue to extend its lead as junior Shermon Davis scored his first goal as a Bluejay at the 57-minute mark off a pass from fellow junior David Simmet to give the Bluejays a 2-0 lead. The assist was Simmet's team-high fourth of the season as he leads the Bluejays in points on the season with 12.


Marins would put the icing on the cake just eight minutes later with the Bluejays third goal of the match off of a pass from junior Giovanni Martinez to closeout a three point performance on by the senior defender.


Sophomore Dalton Burkhard picked up his second straight shutout victory of the season recording four saves on the night as Tabor outshot the Tigers 8-5 with shots on goal in the match.


Tabor (6-2 Overall) will open up KCAC play Saturday Oct. 1, in Sterling, Kan. as the Bluejays take on the Warriors of Sterling College at 3 p.m.
