Owens Community College Express Men's Soccer Competes for First-Ever Regional Championship, Nov. 6

The Owens Community College men's soccer team will look to capture its first-ever regional championship and earn a trip to the NJCAA Division I National Championships on Sunday, November 6. The Express will take on Illinois Central College (East Peoria, Ill.), ranked sixth nationally, in a home soccer match beginning at 1 p.m.

The NJCAA Region XII (District D) Championship will occur at the College's Soccer Field on the Toledo-area Campus. Owens is located on Oregon Road, four miles from downtown Toledo.

Coached by Art Johnson, the Express will take a 16-4-2 overall record and a No. 14 national ranking into the one-match playoff. The Illinois Central College Cougars' overall record stands at 17-1-2. Johnson's squad qualified for the championship match by defeating Schoolcraft College 1-0 and nationally fifth-ranked Cincinnati State Community College 2-1, both in shootouts in regional competition.

Owens completed their Ohio Community College Athletic Association (OCCAC) regular season in second place with a 5-3-2 record. The NJCAA Division I Men's Soccer National Championships will be held Thursday-Sunday, November 17-20, in Tyler, Texas.

Additionally, Owens' Logan Anderson of Findlay (Findlay H.S.) was selected as the NJCAA Division I Goalie of the Week for his goalkeeping efforts last week in regional competition. Anderson recorded 15 and 8 saves in victories over Schoolcraft College and Cincinnati State Community College, respectively. The honor by the freshman goalkeeper was the first in the history of the soccer program.
