The Bluejays' two second half goals were scored by Ulises Barrera and Valerio Santizo.

The loss dropped West to 0-9 on the season. This year is just the second year of men's soccer for the Bluejays, and head coach Jordan Balster said the team is improving. In the last couple of weeks, he said, the team is creating more opportunities for itself than before.

"Now we're getting more chances. We have to put 'em in the net, obviously," said the coach.

Minnesota West's next game is Monday, Oct. 3 at Dordt JV. The next home game is Oct. 5 against Anoka-Ramsey.
