Reivers Celebrate Coach Brown's Birthday in Style

The Reiver men's soccer team capped off an excellent weekend to start the season with a 6-0 win over #12 Illinois Central College this past Sunday at home. On head coach Mike Brown's birthday, the Reivers put together a comprehensive performance, controlling the possession for much of the match and holding the Cougars to only three shots. Led by a strong defense, the Reivers entered the half leading 1-0 on a goal from Mario Magana off of an intelligent play by the forward to intercept an errant back pass and dribble past the keeper. The Reivers then went on to score 5 more goals in the final 30 minutes of the match off of an own goal from Illinois Central and goals from Nicolas Torres, Eduardo Barrios, Theo Le Calve, and Fernando Zaragoza. Nicolas Torres added his third assist of the season. Iowa Western looks ahead to another Friday/Sunday matchup this weekend as John Wood Community College and Central Community College come to town for another weekend of soccer at the Reiver Soccer Complex.
