The Wildcats' home opener was against #14 Spring Arbor University. Johnson and Wales opened up the scoring when Tim Petersen collected a poorly cleared ball, then slotted it through the goalie's legs. Spring Arbor then replied, when they were awarded a penalty kick. The score went into the half tied 1-1
In the second half, JWU came out firing on all cylinders. Julio Soto scored a free kick, Jeronimo Este scored a goal off a rebound, Rodrigo Doben scored a goal off a beautiful combination in which Greg McDoom gave him the perfect assist, and finally Valentin Salinas was able to control a perfect through ball from Rodrigo, and rifle a shot over the goalie.
The final score was 5-2. Next up, the Wildcats will be traveling to Nova Southeastern University, on September 18th at 7pm.
