Head Coach Scott Borchers had this to say about the NCCAA Tournament, "We were blessed with an opportunity to play in the National Tournament. The boys played fantastic through the tough week. Our style, passion, and energy were great. The boys played with lots of freedom. There is a lot to be said about these boys playing 4 games in 6 days; winning 3 games, only being scored on one time in 365 minutes, and playing for a National Championship...all while going into the tournament as the #9 seed. I am really proud of the way the boys performed, handled themselves, and represented Emmanuel College Soccer!"
The Lions ending their season with an overall record of 15-8, the best season they have ever had.
Coach Borchers also had this the say about the season, "It was definitely a memorable season with this team. The team came together in a special way, and I believe that was evident in the way they performed throughout the season. We had considerable contributions from a lot of the players in the team, and I believe that helped with the length of our success. It was an amazing season that saw many new records set with wins, shut-outs, and an appearance in the National Championship match but more importantly, we saw these boys grow in their faith in Christ as well as seeing some give their life to Christ. I'll say that is a pretty successful season!"
Congratulation to the men's soccer team in their great season and becoming the #2 team in the nation. For more information on the Lions, please visit www.goeclions.com
Southwestern Christian University defeated Emmanuel (GA) 1-0 in overtime and secured its first ever NCCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championship Saturday at Austin-Tindall Soccer Complex in Kissimmee, Florida.
The same thing happened when Southwestern Christian University defeated Emmanuel College for the NCCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship.
I love and support both insitutions. I am an alumnus of Emmanuel College, and I was the third president of Southwestern Christian University (when it was called Southwestern College). Drs. R. O. Corvin and his brother W. R. Corvin were the first two presidents. They were great men and educators. Dr. Hugh H. Morgan succeeded Dr. W. R. Corvin.
I am grateful to God for my association with both instituions. May God richly bless Emmanuel College and Southwestern Christian Univeristy.]
