Men's soccer falls in national title bid
In its first-ever National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Opening Round game, Corban's nationally-ranked men's soccer team fell to No. 8-ranked Concordia-Irvine, 4-0, Saturday Nov. 23 at Al Barbour Field on the campus of Biola University.
"Today's result was disappointing, as we felt that we could come out on top when the day began," said head coach Aaron Lewis. "Concordia-Irvine did a great job of getting at us quickly and made the most of their opportunities."
Despite the result, Corban closed out the 2013 season tied for the fewest losses in program history with the Warriors also finishing in the Top 10 in the NAIA in goals allowed per game with an average of 0.74.
Due to Corban's magical season in which six team records – fewest goals allowed (14), lowest Goals Against Average (0.74), most shutouts (13), highest winning percentage (0.850), fewest losses (2), and most consecutive games without a loss (12) – were either tied or broken, the Warriors will celebrate at Disneyland, The Happiest Place on Earth, before coming home.
