Men’s Soccer Victory Milestone for Coach
The King’s College men’s soccer team had a successful week. The Monarchs faced off with the Wildcats of Penn College in what became a milestone game for Coach Mark Bassett.
Bassett secured his 100th career victory in his 10 year tenure at the helm of the King’s College men’s soccer team.
Bassett has compiled a record of 100-60-14, and in the past two seasons, Bassett has achieved two Freedom Conference championships.
As a result, the Monarchs earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament and they look to continue this trend this coming season.
In this historic game, the Monarchs got off to a rather slow start, but the breakthrough came in the 29th minute of play.
First-year Tim Ryan scored his first career goal off of an assist from fellow first-year Chris Galeano.
The first half ended with the score remaining 1-0 in favor of the Monarchs.
After further dominance in possession by the Monarchs, they took a further advantage off the foot of first-year Scott Colombo.
Colombo’s first collegiate goal came from a pass by first-year Jonathan Nixon in the 68 minute.
The final tally came again from Tim Ryan in the 82nd minute from senior Tyler Harlan. Owen Geedey got the winning goal for the Monarchs after making no saves.
