BRENHAM, Texas — No. 20 Blinn College men's soccer (6-2, 5-1) picked up its fifth straight win by defeating Laredo College 2-1 on Friday at Rankin Field.
"We struggled to get going, but had a much better second half," said Michael McBride, Blinn head coach. "I am happy that they found a way to get a result when things weren't going well. We had a lot of luck against Laredo, so we need to perform a lot better tomorrow."
"I am happy that I scored my first goal of the season," Stone said. "Our halftime talk sparked us and we played better in the second half. The front three on offense are really developing a lot of chemistry."
After a scoreless half, Unger teamed up with Fevrier Sildor for Blinn to score its first goal in the 48th minute and lead 1-0. Four minutes later Laredo evened the score on a penalty kick.
Stone took back a 2-1 advantage for Blinn by scoring in the 55th minute.
Next, Blinn will host Coastal Bend College on Saturday, September 21, at 7 p.m. at Rankin Field.
Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 41 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
