EVERETT, Wash. -- The Rocky Mountain College men's soccer team dealt Trinity Luthern a 2-0 defeat on Monday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, Trinity downed Rocky's women 2-1 in double overtime.

The men's game was scoreless when Oliver Gore scored on an assist from Mikey Wall at the 48-minute mark. In the 73rd minute, Evan Connolly used his head to redirect a corner kick by Wall into the top corner of the net. RMC coach Richard Duffy said it was Connolly's first goal of the season. Duffy added, "In the second half, we played much better and created some chances."

Joachim Soderstrom anchored the goal for Rocky.

The Battlin' Bears men are now 4-0-1 and will play College of Idaho Friday in Spokane, Wash. Also in Spokane on Friday, the RMC women will play the College of Idaho.

In the women's match, Trinity built a 1-0 halftime lead. RMC (2-1) battled back to tie it on a goal by Mandi Achten at the 65-minute mark on an assist by Chez Keehn.

The Bears outshot Trinity 23-6. Malin Johansson made two saves for RMC.

 "We came out flat in the first half. In the second half, we turned it around a little bit. We got back into the game and scored the tying goal," Duffy said. "Their goaltender had a number of good saves. For some reason, we couldn't get the goal and they sneaked one in with four minutes left in the second overtime."
