Central Penn men's soccer defeats Mid-Atlantic Christian 5-1

By Dylan Kleintop, Student Reporter

The Knights looked to get back on track after suffering their first loss of the season, and they did just that by beating Mid-Atlantic Christian College 5-1.

Central Penn was expecting a big win, but the match didn't start well for them, with Mid Atlantic scoring first to take a 1-0 lead. Midway through the first half, the Knights responded on a goal from Kyle Vargas, with Andrew Day picking up the assist, to make it 1-1.

Going into halftime, Central Penn knew they could play better, and they were determined to show that on the field. Throughout the beginning of the second half, the team pushed hard for a goal to take the lead, but Mid-Atlantic's goalkeeper was equal to every shot.

The Knights finally found the back of the net, with Vargas scoring his second goal of the game, on an assist from Zach Morrill. Central Penn took that momentum and quickly added a goal from Morrill, after an assist from Vargas, to make it 3-1.

With just under 12 minutes to play, the Knights were up 3-1, and in control of the game. However, the team was not satisfied, as Ted Kreitz notched his first goal of the season, from a pass by Kyle Stauffer. Minutes later, Morrill found the back of the net for the second time, after a pass from Vargas.

The Knights secured a 5-1 victory to improve to 5-1-1 on the season.
