Midwestern State football and futball stories

Mustangs have mixed results on goal line

As preseason practice at Midwestern State progresses the Mustangs continue to add more plays, as well as drills, to their workouts.

Wednesday’s two-a-day workouts saw the offense and defense compete against each other in both goal line and one-minute situations.

Both sides of the ball had some success, but the defense — as it should — appeared to come out on top a majority of the time.

“The defense did a good job on goal line when it was 1’s versus 1’s,” MSU head coach Bill Maskill said. “But the offense did well when it was the 2’s going against each other.

“The offense also did a better job in the one-minute (drill) than they did this morning. We had a little bit better conditions this afternoon and that might have helped some.”

Kmiec, No. 3 Mustangs shoot down Stars 3-1 in exhibition

Midwestern State junior striker Kyle Kmiec scored two goals in the closing eight minutes of regulation to lift the No. 3 Mustangs to a 3-1 exhibition victory over Oklahoma City University Thursday afternoon at the MSU Soccer Field.

“You have to give OKC credit,” MSU coach Doug Elder said. “They came in and played a physical game with a lot of hard tackles. Our guys really needed that.”

The physical was just right Kmiec, who converted a penalty kick in the 82nd minute after he was fouled from behind in the box.
