Having guided his team through the season-opening Ft. Zumwalt Kickoff Classic Aug. 19-24, head coach Liam Collins and the Missouri Military Academy varsity soccer team came home to get its first win over Southern Boone 4-2 at home on Tuesday.

Two days later and the squad was up against it again at Helias on Thursday for what turned out to be a 6-0 defeat.

"The guys were not at their best for the first half and we dug a big hole for ourselves," said Collins. "We were better in the second half but unfortunately our slow start hurt us."

MMA, 1-4 overall, is at the Viking Showdown on Sept. 8-9.
