Next up for the Eagles was another home match, this time against Treasure Valley. The team dominated the game, shutting out TVCC 2-0. Mourchid Youssef connected with the net 31 minutes into the first half. Andres Garza scored the second goal for USUE at the 75-minute mark.
On Saturday, the team wrapped up its three-game stint with a win against Northwest Kansas Tech. Kansas Tech came out fast in the first half, scoring an unassisted goal in the first minute of play. Youssef then kickstarted the Eagles’ offense 20 minutes into play with an unassisted goal. A goal by Jake Clements in the second put USUE up for the rest of the game, 2-1.
The Golden Eagles will take to the field again on Thursday, Aug. 27 as they travel to Wyoming for a game against Sheridan College.
