Blue Knight Women Cap Off Week with Two Shutouts, Mens End Week Winless

The DCTC Blue Knights women’s soccer squad came away with two home wins last week, first by easily besting Central Lakes Community College of Brainerd in a 10-0 win last Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Competing in its first season, Central Lakes came to visit DCTC after the Knights shut out the Raiders 7-0 earlier in the season.

On Sunday, Oct. 2, the Blue Knight women beat Scott Community College (Iowa) 8-0 to earn their first-ever Iowa Community College Athletic Conference (ICCAC) league win. DCTC is playing in its first year as a member of this NJCAA Division I conference, and stand with a record of 5-6-0 and a 1-3 standing in the ICCAC.

On the men’s side, Coach Cam Stoltz said the team seems to be struggling a bit, coming away with a 2-2 against the Macalester JV team. Despite coming back from a 2-0 deficit, the Knights could not move into the lead, instead settling for a tie.

On Sunday, the Knights took a 1-0 lead late into their game against Scott Community College, only to give up three late goals. Stoltz said it was a disappointing conference loss which dropped the team’s record to 6-6-1 and 1-5-0 in the ICCAC.

This week, both teams play host to a rare Monday matinee with Cloud County Community College (Kansas) coming to Rich Valley Complex in Inver Grove Heights.

DCTC then returns to ICCAC action on Wednesday when it hosts Iowa Central Community College at Rich Valley (1 p.m. and 3 p.m.).
