MONTGOMERY, ALA. – On a rainy morning in Montgomery, Ala., the USAO Drovers suffered their first loss of the season and ended their tournament hopes as they fell to Belhaven University 2-1.
“We wanted to go all the way, of course we did. But value the journey … we value the opportunity to play on the stage,” Coach Jimmy Hampton said to his players after the game. “The experience is what matters -- that you got the opportunity to do it. Maybe we fell a little short but maybe that makes you want to come back.”
MONTGOMERY, ALA. – Leaving Thanksgiving morning to make the long trip to Montgomery, Ala., the Drovers are eager to get on the field to play in the NAIA Men’s Soccer National Championship second round game.
“Attitude of boys is very good,” USAO head coach Jimmy Hampton said. “They are prepped and ready to play. We’ve been training very hard last four days. The boys ready to go.”
