OWENSBORO, KY - The Trailblazers' Soccer Team has had a rough season at times this Fall. Players have gotten hurt, they have dropped some close games, and they have had offensive issues come up here and there, but the team never gave up through it all. On Saturday afternoon, the team hit the field for the final time this Fall with one goal, and that was to finish their season with pride and a victory. The team did just that. The Brescia Bearcats would strike early when Kerby Edme found the back of the net two minutes into the game, but the Trailblazers were far from out of it, as Collin Hawke scored the equalizer a minute later on an assist from Jon-Eric Stiles. The Bearcats would go to halftime up 2-1, but it would not remain that way for long. The second half belonged to the Trailblazers, as Collin Hawke would score his second goal of the game to tie it at 2-2 before Colin Dorman and Brody Baise added two more to make the final score 4-2. The win not only ended the year on a good note for OCU, but also showed everyone the grit and toughness this team put on display this season.
"Winning against Brescia is a great example of the willingness of this group to never give up. We weren't playing for anything earthly. We were playing as an act of worship and for each other," said Head Coach Josh Murton. "These men have never given up this season. Their legacy is one of toughness and persistence. I am so blessed to be their coach."
