OTTAWA — The Southwestern College men’s soccer team recorded a 3-1 victory Friday at Ottawa in KCAC action.

The Moundbuilders (1-1, 1-1 KCAC) overcame an early 1-0 deficit when Francis Watson scored off a feed from Fabio Schneider midway through the first half.

The first 30 minutes of the second half was scoreless until the Builders broke the tie around the 74th minute, pushing in a goal off of the foot of Austin Schroeder.

Southwestern added an insurance goal shortly thereafter by Kameron Knowles off an assist from Malvin Mupondi.

Southwestern outshot the Braves (0-2, 0-1) 17-4, allowing just two shots on goal.

The Builders have won two straight against Ottawa after dropping 11 straight.

Southwestern plays Friday at Avila.


Lady Builders 3, Ottawa 2

OTTAWA — Southwestern College freshman Lauren Fleischer scored in overtime Friday to lead the Lady Builders to a 3-2 victory against Ottawa in KCAC play.

The victory by the Lady Builders (1-1, 1-1 KCAC) snapped a seven-game skid against Ottawa.

Southwestern struck first after 35 minutes of scoreless play, with Hailey Rouse connecting off a pass from Douglass High School native Kryslyn Henderson.

It stayed that way through halftime.

Henderson scored again just four minutes into the second half, but the Lady Braves (1-1, 0-1) quickly answered, cutting the deficit in half less than two minutes later on a score by Ciara Joyce.

Ottawa knotted things up in the 78th minute on a goal by Reighna Werner to send the game into overtime.

The Lady Builders travel to Kansas City, Mo. for a 1 p.m. Friday matinee against Avila.
