Hawks come up short in southeast Texas

MT. PLEASANT & LUFKIN, TEXAS – The Northeast Community College men's soccer team was unable to pick up a win over the weekend, falling 3-0 to Northeast Texas Community College and 4-0 to Angelina College in Mount Pleasant and Lufkin, Texas.

The Hawks (1-3) were unable to find any momentum against Northeast Texas after trailing 2-0 at halftime. Northeast was out-shot 24-3 in the match, while Ivan Castillo-Garcia (Broomfield, Colo.) recorded six saves.

"We are having some troubles finding our chemistry," head coach Chad Miller said. "It is still very early in our season, but each game we need to get a little closer to what we want. We can get the ball up the field, but can't seem to connect for a shot in front of the goal."

On Sunday, the Hawks managed six shots, but were unable to connect as they were shut-out for the second day in a row.

Jorge Trejo (Brighton, Colo.) tallied four saves in the loss.

"This was another game of us going forward successfully, but not being able to get a shot off," Miller added. "We possess really well going forward, but lose it when we get in the opponent's defensive third. There is a lot we need to do to get better. We have to keep playing for each other and be a little patient on and off the ball."

The Hawks return to the pitch at 2:00 p.m. Thursday when they take on Central Community College in Columbus, Neb.
