Men’s Soccer Loses Tough One to Grace Bible

10.12.2012 | Grand Rapids, MI

The Kentucky Christian University men’s soccer team traveled to Grand Rapids, MI take on NCCAA Division I opponent Grace Bible College and lost 3-1.

The game started off on a bad note for the Knights when a hand ball in the box occurred less than a minute into the game, giving Grace a penalty kick. Grace was able to score off of the penalty kick and add in another goal before the first half was over.

Sophomore Colin Varney was able to score a goal for the Knights with 25 minutes left to go in the game to bring the score to 2-1 and give the Knights some life. That was quickly taken away when GBC countered and scored less than a minute later giving them the 3-1 lead that they would end the game with.

Head Coach Jeremy Miller was not happy with his team’s effort in the first half and knows if they played a full 90 minutes they would have had a better chance to compete and possibly win the game, “There was no real effort in the first half, it was like the team didn’t even get off the bus. In the second half we played really smart and hard, but we can’t expect to win games if we only show up for one half. It has been a tough week for us with a number of injuries and a lot of games in a short time span.”

The Knights will end their weekend in Michigan with a game against Kuyper College at 11am Saturday.
