Local College Sports Update

The East Central College athletic teams were able to record victories in a number of sports over the weekend. In a way you could say the Falcons tamed the Cougars as each victory came against a school with a Cougar mascot. A busy sports schedule had all three of the Falcon teams in action.

ECC Men’s Soccer (5-4) was able to move above the .500 level for the season with victories against the Kishwaukee College Cougars 5-1 and St. Charles Community College Cougars 2-1. The Falcons cruised to victory over Kishwaukee and a won tightly contested match against rival St. Charles for a crucial NJCAA Region 16 victory by scoring two great goals.

ECC Women’s Volleyball posted a victory against the Clinton Community College Cougars in the Southeastern Community College Tournament. The Falcons downed Clinton in three straight sets by scores of 25-21, 25-22, 25-17. ECC dropped other matches in the tournament to Indian Hills, Butler and Southeastern.

ECC Softball has a tough fall exhibition schedule playing mostly four year schools to get exposure for sophomores hoping to transfer. The Falcons played two tight contests against the Missouri S&T Miners and just fell short 2-0 and 5-3.
