Stags Sweep Northwest Opponents To Earn Calichman Milestone Win
CMS travelled to Portland, OR this weekend and came away with wins at Pacific University (3-0) and against Whitworth University (2-1). The two wins gave head coach Dan Calichman 100 career wins.
The Stags faced off against the host Boxers of Pacific on Friday night and got the scoring going early. A strong offensive attack forced a defensive miscue and the Stags got on the board in the fifth minute on a Boxer own goal. Jared Bernstein scored unassisted eight minutes later and then assisted Harry Doyle just over 10 minutes after that and the rout was on. The Boxers were reduced to 10 men as they had a player booked for his second yellow card in the final minute of the first half. CMS dominated the second half as well, but were unable to find the back of the net. The Stag defense allowed only four shots in the game and only two on goal. Ricky Doar and Tim Park each played one half and shared the shutout.
CMS played traditional Northwest Conference power Whitworth on Sunday at Pacific University and, as they have in all three games this season, scored an early goal. Bernstein scored in the fourth minute on a feed from David Taylor. The Stags dominated the action outshooting the Pirated 20-11 for the game, but Whitworth was able to capitalize with a header off a free kick in the 80th minute. The Stags received some late game magic from a freshmen duo. Jaison Kimura connected with Jake Bishop in the box for a goal with nine seconds remaining in regulation to earn the victory.
CMS (2-1) begins SCIAC action this Wednesday, September 14. They will travel to Cal Lutheran for a 4:00 game.
