Dan Jackson and Tim Kloster, two of the Monarchs' prolific scorers and international students, were named to the NJCAA's All-Region XVI First Team. Lakin Khede, a sophomore, was named to the Second Team.
After moving past St. Louis Community College in the Region XVI quarterfinals, the Monarchs faced off against rival St. Charles Community College on a cold, rainy day.
The team fought both their rival and the field conditions that day, trading goals to end regulation tied at 1-1 on a goal scored by Dan Jackson.
The Monarchs were able to hold St. Charles to no scored through two overtime periods, but finally lost the game at the end of the second on penalty kicks.
The Monarchs finished the season with a record of 12-4-1.
The team has been practicing since the beginning of August, working on fundamentals, developing a strong team chemistry, preparing for another run towards the regional and national championships.
