Bid Red Loses to Big Blue in Soccer
The Fighting Scots took on Millikin Big Blue Thursday. From the start of the game the Scots put on heavy pressure holding the Big Blue in their own half for the 25 minutes of the first half. Josh Del Valle missed an early goal after beating all the Millikin defenders, Josh slotted the ball to goal beating the goalkeeper, but also beating the post. The Scots managed to have 3 shots at goal and Millikin ending the half with a total of 6 shots.

The start of the second half the Scots continued to push the ball into the Millikin half, but were still unable to put one in the back of the net. Millikin finally broke the dead lock in the 58th minute with a goal from Kevin Price beating Frank Bowman out of his position. After the first goal Monmouth still tried to apply heavy pressure, but made a switch putting Nickolas Vyncke in goal. Nickolas made a couple of great saves, but let one past in the 67th minute sealing the Fighting Scots chance to make a quick turn around comeback. The Scots only managed 2 shots on goal while Millikin turned up the pressure adding 4 more shoots to the tally sheet, but no more goals making it a heartbreak loss for the Scots.

FINAL: Millikin 2, Monmouth 0
