By Kaw Valley FC, 09/17/18, 4:30PM CDT


As the 2018 college season continues on, the 2018 KVFC roster continues to be well-represented on the collegiate pitch. From match-winning goals to picturesque assists, the Cranes roster had their fingerprints all over the last two weeks. Full statistics for matches before September 1st can be found on our College Tracker page.

Emery May
Furman University (NCAA DI)

Three Matches, 2-1-0 Record
The Furman Paladins had a tough two week of matches that culminated with a battle with in-state rival South Carolina. Trailing by one in the 80th minute, Furman struck for two quick goals including a match-winner from 2018 Crane Emery May. The midfielder slid a shot pass the USC keeper after a failed clearance. The Wichita native has started every match for the Paladins this season.

May described the goal to KVFC: "One of our outside backs took a long throw-in and it got put out. Then one of our midfielders played the ball back in and I was there to finish it off into the side netting. I’m thankful to get on the scoresheet, in that fashion, for the first time this season!"

Adrian Gutierrez and Santiago Sierra
Central Methodist University (NAIA)
Three Matches, 3-0-0 Record

The NAIA is starting to see what opponents saw all summer when Adrian Gutierrez and Santiago Sierra are on the field together. The Central Methodist Eagles were unbeaten over the past two weeks, including a goal and an assist each for '18 alums Gutierrez and Sierra.
