The Northwestern men’s soccer team won a 4-2 match against visiting Presentation College on Wednesday, Sept. 24. With the victory, NW stands at a 6-2-1 record.
The Raiders jumped out of the gates when senior midfielder Gabriel Goncalves scored in the sixth minute. After Presentation tied the score at 1, freshman forward Landon Sibole scored off an assist by sophomore midfielder Wesley Lockwood. Tied 2-2, NW never looked back after a goal in the 37th minute by sophomore midfielder Jairo Cerna. Freshman midfielder Isaac Wong scored the final Raider goal from an assist by sophomore forward Kade Heikens.
“Johnny (Venegas) did well to get a cross in,” Heikens said. “A couple guys made good runs to drag the defenders in the box. I didn’t have much of an angle, so I settled it and played it back across to Wong and he did well.”
NW returns to action on Saturday, Sept. 27, against Doane in Crete, Neb. The match will begin at 3:15 p.m.
