The State Fair Community College Roadrunners traveled to Columbia College on Saturday, Aug. 20, to scrimmage the Columbia College Cougars, ranked seventh in the NAIA Men’s Soccer Coaches’ Preseason Top 25. SFCC dropped the decision, 2-0.
“The biggest improvement came from our back four, which is made up of Max Martin at right back, Vlad Varshytsky, Roberto Ramirez, and Yusef Shoune,” SFCC head coach Eddie Horn said in a release. “They were composed in the buildup and defended well. When that happens, we are able to get entry passes into our midfielders’ and forwards’ feet.”
SFCC opens the regular season at 4 p.m. Tuesday at St. Charles Community College.

Columbia College defeated the SFCC Lady Roadrunners soccer team 7-0 in a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 20.
