  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families.

  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Terry’s brace gives Falcons first ever MVC win.

Jack Walsh

The Falcons (3-3-2) hosted their first-ever home Missouri Valley Conference on Saturday evening, taking on the undefeated Bradley Braves (4-0-4) for match number nine of the season.

The Orange and Brown would control the first 45’, dominating possession and creating multiple goal-scoring opportunities.

BG would find the match’s opening goal in the 26’ with sophomore forward Trace Terry getting his first goal of the season, with a header off a cross from senior midfielder Kyle Blasingame.

The Braves were outshot by the Falcons 10-4 in the first, but had one more shot on goal than Bowling Green, with three shots on target to BG’s two.

For the second time this season, the Falcons would have a lead going into halftime, with the score 1-0.

The Braves would draw a penalty kick off a mistake in the back from the Falcons in the second half. Midfielder Joao Saraiva would step up and score from the spot, tying the game 1-1 in the 76’.

The Falcons would respond immediately in the 83’, with Terry getting his second goal off an assist from Alberto Anaya.

Bowling Green wouldn’t stop there. Freshman midfielder Jake Lane secured the victory for the Falcons, getting his first collegiate goal in the 84’, with a left-footed shot into the bottom left corner that beat Bradley goal-keeper Drew Berry.

BG outshot Bradley 16-10 on the night, the Braves led in shots on goal with eight, the Falcons with six.

This is the first-ever MVC win for Bowling Green in program history, who now sit fourth in The Valley at 1-1 in conference play, and now (4-3-2) on the season.

Bradley, now handed their first loss of the season, sits seventh in The Valley at 0-1, and (4-1-4) on the season.

The Falcons will continue conference play, as they will host the Evansville Purple Aces on Saturday, September 30. Kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
