Western came out and played with a lot of offensive gusto and tenacity. The opening chance came within seconds of the opening whistle but Andrew Newbold just missed on the shot. Possession and shots were plentiful for WWCC throughout the match. The first goal for Western came in the 34th minute when Andrew Newbold sent a nice centered through ball to Jesse Cardenas who nicely placed the ball past the NJC keeper. More chances were had for the Mustangs but no goals came and the halftime score was 1 - 0 in favor of WWCC.
In the second half much of the same occurred as WWCC kept possession and kept peppering the Plainsmen goal. The second goal for the Mustangs was in the 63rd minute when Gunner Burrell dropped the ball off for Levi Tams who rocketed the shot to the bottom left corner from about 15 yards out. The defense and keeper were very solid for the Mustangs on the day and earned their first shutout for the team and first career shutout for Kyle Mivshek. The win brings the WWCC record to 7 - 6 - 2 on the 2014 season.
Mustang Man of the Match - Levi Tams - Levi had the second goal of the match and played very well off of the bench.
