The boys soccer team battled 100-degree temperatures and high winds on Sept. 19 when facing off against the Great Bend Panthers in their second WAC matchup against each other, with the Indians pulling out a 2-0 victory.

The Indians kicked off the game with the wind at their backs, but while multiple shots were taken none found the back of the net. Three shots hitting the post a physical game and high temperatures, tempers flared with the Indians and the Panthers, both having players receive a yellow card in the first half.

In the second half freshman, Brian Cisneros put the Indians on the scoreboard after finishing a deflected shot taken by junior Trey McCrae. McCrae would get a goal of his own two minutes later in the 56th minute after deflecting a Great Bend player’s pass, into the back of the net making the score 2-0.

The Indians move to 5-3 on the season and 1-3 in Western Athletic Conference.
