Falcons soccer roundup

    The Northern Maine Community College Falcons men’s soccer team defeated CMCC Saturday, 2-1, and fell by a mere 1-0 margin Sunday to SMCC in weekend action.

    In the victory, Brandon Anthony of Mars Hill converted an assist from Josh Allen of Presque Isle for the first goal of the game in the first half. Midway through the second half, NMCC scored what proved to be the game-winner when Allen headed in a cross from Anthony.

    CMCC scored a late goal, but could not come up with the equalizer. CMCC had beaten the Falcons in their first matchup, 2-1.

    On Sunday, the only goal of the game was scored on a penalty kick as SMCC prevailed. The loss was an improvement from a 6-0 defeat earlier in the season.

    Last Wednesday, NMCC was soundly beaten by UM-Machias, 15-2. Allen scored both Falcon goals.

    Brad MacKenzie was NMCC’s goalie in all three matches.
