marking the 40th year of his passing with a Jailhouse Rock arranged by Johnnie Vinson as well as the University of Missouri Spirit Songs: Every True Son and Fight Tiger!

Sophomore Forrest Drummond and Senior Styles Fountain lead the offensive outburst. Drummond rushed for 58 yards, with 84 yards receiving (with a 80 yard TD). Fountain was able to add 52 rushing yards and 65 receiving (65 yard td).

“Part of the growing process is learning how to finish games," Head Coach Mitchell Jenkins said. "This one was tough for sure, but I think moving forward, a game like this will be beneficial for our team.”

Colonels Soccer hits the road to play in the Viking Showdown
 
 
Colonels Soccer traveled to Springfield this weekend to play in the Viking Showdown Tournament.
 
The team didn't play to the best of their abilities during their first game, and fell to Monet 10-0. The loss put a fire in their bellies for Saturday, and the Colonels came out swinging against West Plains, winning 2-1. Goals from Joao Souza and Sergio Velasco secured the victory for the Colonels. The team then immediately turned around and played Willard, battling hard. After going into halftime tied 1-1, the Colonels began to tire out, and fell 3-1.
 
"We started the tournament on the back foot Friday," Head Varsity Soccer Coach Liam Collins said. "I was very happy with our performances on Saturday, however, and the team was thrilled to pick up another win on the season."
