T-Birds snap losing skid

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Cloud County snapped a three-game losing streak by squeezing past Kansas City Kansas Community College in a Region 6 men’s soccer match on Tuesday.
The Thunderbirds had lost five consecutive matches before suffering three straight losses in Texas last week.
“I think Texas helped us in the long run, playing that quality of teams. We actually should have won two of those,” Cloud County coach Derek Talcott said.
Cloud County is now 8-7 overall and 5-2 in region.
The T-Birds are in third place behind Coffeyville and Barton County, both 7-1.
Kerbson Lubin scored a goal in the 16th minute to give Cloud County an early 1-0 lead on KCK.
The T-Birds went up 2-0 on a goal by Alexander Kunz in the 25th minute.
KCK made it 2-1 with a goal in the 32nd minute.
The Blue Devils had an opportunity to tie the match late in the first half, but Cloud County goalkeeper Juan Mendoza made a save on a penalty kick.
Cloud County extended the lead to 3-1 when Gefte Blanc scored in the second half.
KCK tacked on a goal in the 67th minute to make the final 3-2.
The Blue Devils fall to 3-4-2 overall and 2-4-2 in the region.
KCK 1,
Cloud County 0
The Cloud County women did not give up a goal to KCK, but suffered a 1-0 loss.
An own goal when a Cloud County player attempted to clear a ball deflected into the goal was the only score in the match.
“We are struggling without Georgia,” Talcott said.
Georgia Walters, the leading goal scorer for the T-Birds, is out with a bruised knee.
Cloud County has lost four straight, and is now 3-8 overall and 0-8 in the region.
