The day after recording the first regular-season win in program history, the Carroll College men's soccer team didn't fare as well at Jamestown College, falling 4-0. Kody Duncan got the NAIA power on the board early, scoring less that five minutes in to put the Jimmies (3-0) in front from the start. A pair of Jack Humphries goals made it 3-0 at the half, and Jamestown added a Jade Johnson goal midway through the second half to finish out the scoring.
Carroll (1-3-1) has one more road game to complete its long stretch away from Helena, and will play at Presentation College at 3 p.m. Monday. The Saints will then return home to play their first regular season home game at 3:30 p.m. Saturday against the University of Great Falls.

The Saints have made history once again. In the midst of a brutal stretch that had them playing in their fourth road game in the last 10 days, the first-year Carroll College men's soccer team beat Morningside 3-1 on Saturday. The Saints had beaten Sheridan Community College in a home exhibition to start the season, but this was the first regular-season win for the club, which will continue its swing with back-to-back games Sunday and Monday.
"it was a good victory, on the road," coach Doug Mello said. "We're excited. The guys are buying in. In the first two matches it kind of took us a bit to get some wind under our sails and defend as a unit. We've since worked on it a lot, and it's paid dividends."
BILLINGS, Mont. – A well-placed shot from the top of the 18-yard box by Fernando Perez provided the Montana State Billings men's soccer team with a crucial equalizing goal in a 1-1 double overtime draw against Carroll College in a preseason exhibition match Sunday afternoon at Yellowjacket Field.

A well-placed shot from the top of the box by Fernando Perez provided the Montana State Billings men's soccer team with a crucial, equalizing goal in a 1-1 double overtime draw against Carroll College Sunday afternoon at Yellowjacket Field.
Perez's goal came in the 80th minute, 10 minutes after Jacob Groh put the Saints ahead with a goal on an assist from Nathan Boone. The game served as a practice scrimmage for both teams, not counting towards their regular-season records.

The Carroll men's soccer team struggled to find much offense Thursday in its first-ever game of the program's inaugural season, played on the road at Westminster.
The Griffins beat the Saints 4-1, led by a hat trick from Michael Porter. Porter, in fact, scored the earliest goal in team history to start his barrage, netting one just 1:15 into the game from eight yards out. He added the eventual game-winner just two minutes later, firing a shot off the crossbar for the 2-0 lead.
Carroll's lone goal came from Dylan Allen, who scored the program's first regular-season goal in the 11th minute from 10 yards out to cut Westminster's lead in half. The Helena product was the only Saint to manage a shot on goal in the contest, however, and Carroll finished with just three total shots.
