The Hesston College men’s soccer team (1-3) fell 1-0 to the Mavericks of Northwest Kansas Technical College (Goodland) on Tuesday night.
It proved to be a physical match with fouls and yellow cards issued throughout. The Mavericks scored the only goal in the 44th minute. The Larks responded well in the second half with better tempo and physicality but were unable to unlock the Mavericks defense.
Freshman goalkeeper Luke Hertzler (Harrisonburg, VA) made a few key saves to keep the Larks within a goal.
HC returns to action on Thursday, hosting Central Christian at 7 p.m.
