MIAMI — Continuing to search for some type of offensive production, the Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College Golden Norsemen soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision Tuesday night to Neosho County (Kansas) Community College at Red Robertson Field.
Through five halves thus far in the young season the Golden Norse have not found the net. Last week NEO suffered a 1-0 loss in overtime to the Roadrunners of State Fair (Missouri) Community College.
The Norsemen remain at home for a 7 p.m. match Friday against Coffeyville (Kansas) Community College. The Red Ravens are 1-2-1 overall.
NEO (0-2) plays the first of four matches on the road at 2 p.m. Saturday at Cowley County Community College in Arkansas City, Kansas. The Tigers are 0-1-1 on the year.
Neosho County (1-0) built a 2-0 lead in the first half.
Just two minutes into the match, the Panthers scored on a goal by sophomore forward Marcos Lucero off a pass from his brother Miguel Lucero.
Eight minutes later, Panthers defender Rafael Biff took a pass from forward Eduardo Caravalho to give Neosho County a 2-0 lead heading into halftime.
The Caravalho-to-Biff combination clicked again for a goal at the 55-minute juncture of the second half to secure the win.
