The Master’s College women’s soccer team fell to 6th-ranked Vanguard 1-0 in double overtime Wednesday night in La Mirada.

But on Saturday, TMC rebounded with a 1-0 victory over San Diego Christian College on the road in El Cajon. The win brings the 15th-ranked Lady Mustangs’ overall record to 12-2, and 4-2 in conference play.

The first half was relatively quiet as the Hawks outshot the Lady Mustangs 5-7. Notably, both TMC’s and SDCC’s goalkeepers notched two saves in the first stanza.

After the break, the Lady Mustangs recalibrated their efforts and were able to create a harvest of scoring opportunities, which culminated in a decisive goal from Natasha Coyle off an assist from Gabrielle Arnone at the 87:59 mark.

The Lady Mustangs’ season continues Wednesday when Westmont, the nation’s 3rd-ranked squad, pulls into Placerita Canyon for a 3:00 p.m. match at Reese Field. Currently, the Warriors boast a 10-0-3 (4-0-2 GSAC) overall record.

Men’s Soccer

On Wednesday night in La Mirada, The Master’s College men’s soccer team rallied from a 2-1 first half deficit by the means goals from Zach Klindworth and Jorge Serano, beating the Vanguard Lions 3-2.

However, on Saturday, a San Diego Christian goal at the 60:57 mark, coupled with a goal off a penalty kick at the 66:25 mark gave the Hawks a 2-0 victory, and lowered The Master’s College men’s soccer team’s 2013 record to 3-8-1 and 2-4 in GSAC play.

Notably, Saturday’s loss snapped TMC’s two game winning streak, the longest of the squads’ 2013 campaign.

Looking to right the ship, TMC will now attempt to rebound against Westmont College on Tuesday in a 3:00 p.m. match at Reese Field. The Warriors currently boast a 7-5 (3-3) overall record.

Men’s and Women’s Cross Country

Last Tuesday, The Master’s College volleyball team received news that it would remain in 13th place on the most recent Tachikara-NAIA Volleyball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll.

Looking ahead, the Lady Mustangs will host West Coast Baptist Tuesday night at Bross Court. First serve is set for 7:00 p.m.

This Saturday, No. 3 nationally ranked Biola will visit The Master’s College for a 7:00 p.m. GSAC showdown.


The Master’s College men’s golf team will compete for the last time until February today and tomorrow at the CSU San Marcos Fall Classic on the greens of the Twin Oaks Golf Course in San Marcos.

The Mustangs look to continue the strong start to their 2013-14 campaign as the squad has placed 4th and 2nd in their last two showings, respectively.

Women’s Basketball

This Thursday, The Mater’s College women’s basketball team will host Cal State Long Beach in a 6:00 p.m. scrimmage at Bross Court.
