After picking up a new class of players, the team looked to quickly build chemistry and start the season with SIU-E and SLU.
The team started off strongly with a 3-0 win over SIU-E. Goals from the veterans Andrew Ahlers, Austin Werths and Tyler Payton coupled with stonewall defending helped the team overcome a difficult opponent on a tricky surface.
With a 3-0 win on the board, Truman F.C. headed into the heart of Midtown, St. Louis to take on Saint Louis University. Both teams had opportunities spread across the two halves but astute defending held the game at to a draw.
Though the team hoped for 6 points from the weekend, 4 points from two, tough road games satisfied the developing team. Strong performances from the new boys on the opening weekend has the team dreaming of a Halloween weekend in Dallas, Texas.
