Doane Knocks Off Morningside

The Tigers snapped a two-game skid with a 1-0 victory over Morningside College on Saturday afternoon in Crete.  Morningside is receiving votes in the NAIA national poll.  The game went back and forth in a defensive battle before the Tigers broke the scoreless tie in the 72nd minute.

Devon Strecker was able to play a ball over the top of the defense to himself and beat Morningside goalkeeper Daniel Whithorn for the lone goal.  Kyle Smith had the assist on the play for Doane.

Morningside put together a strong charge in the final two minutes of play and tested freshman goalie Greg Beall.  Beall made a diving save and also deflected a ball over the cross bar in the final 15 seconds to preserve the victory.  Beall finished with five saves in the game.
