THOMASVILLE -- The Thomas University soccer teams were swept at the Wendy's Soccer Complex on Saturday. William Carey won both games 2-1.
The women's game was scoreless at halftime as the Night Hawks played their best half this year according to coach Ricky Zambrano. The Crusaders scored the first two goals of the second half to take control of the game before junior Darlene Campbell put TU on the scoreboard.
"We played a great first half," Zambrano said. "The second half, I felt our level dropped off and we couldn't match their intensity and that hurt us. But the first half we played as well as we had all year."
The Night Hawks (0-7-1) play again today as they host Georgia College and State University at 3 p.m.
In the men's game, the Night Hawks (2-5-1) played well also but could not down William Carey. Zambrano said all the credit goes to the Crusaders who were playing their first game due to Hurricane Katrina hitting the campus in Hattiesburg, Miss.
"You have to salute them," Zambrano said. "It was their first game and they overcame difficult circumstances and the lack of time and training.
"We absolutely played as well as we could have. For five minutes we didn't and that punished us. We have to play for 90 minutes and we're not able to do that."
Senior Jonathon Carroll scored TU's lone goal.
TU heads to Bristol, Tenn., to face No. 10 Virginia Intermont.
