On Thursday, Lincoln College men's soccer
defeated Greenville College JV 6-0.
Lincoln opened up the scoring in the third minute when Santana
Caciedo crossed a ball to Gideon Moranga, who scored from 6 yards
out. Lincoln would follow up with a second goal just minutes later
when again Caciedo crossed a ball from deep on the right flank. The
cross found Moranga, who chested the ball and hit a side volley past
an outstretched keeper. Lincoln would follow up with a third goal in
the 30th minute when Dave Amankawah beat a defender and played Jason
Velasquez an easy layoff for a left-footed shot that went into the
side netting. The half would end at 3-0 LC.
"We were very happy as a coaching staff with the first-half
performance," said LC head coach Ben Massena. "We started six guys
who had not started a match yet, and we asked them to get a good
tempo to the game and work the ball into the flanks."
In the second half it was all Lincoln again, with goals coming
from Eddy Milien and Ben Frogner, who assisted on each other's goals
Massena said the best goal of the day was when LC was awarded a
penalty kick and he gave the nod to goalkeeper Daniel Martinez to
take the spot kick. Martinez would convert this kick, becoming the
first keeper in Massena's tenure to score during a match.
This win moved Lincoln to 4-1.

LC coach Mark Tippett commented: "It is always tough to come away
from a long road trip with no wins, but I think we learned a lot
from the experience. We had trouble getting anything going against
Mineral Area. They were a strong team and put up a very big block. I
was pleased by the way we bounced back and played a strong match
against Kaskaskia. It was a match that saw a lot of long rallies and
forced us to play hard on defense. We had a 10-5 lead on them in the
last set but let it slip away, which is frustrating, but hopefully
we learned that when you have a team down, you cannot allow them any
openings, or tough losses will be the result.
Lincoln's record is now 8-10 on the year.
