The Madison College men’s soccer team defeated Milwaukee Area Technical College, 7-0, on Oct. 18 at home in the first round of the NJCAA Region 4 Tournament.
Freshman Gabe Voung had a hat trick with goals in the seventh minute, the 49th minute and the 61st minute.
Evan Thom scored in the 35th minute. Edgar Mateo scored in the 57th minute, which was his first goal of the season. Adriano Ponte scored two minutes after Mateo, while Martin Apimbu finished off the scoring in the 81st minute.
After the match, Madison College coach Tim Bruner said, “We did a nice job at creating chances.”
Bruner also said that Gabe Voung broke the school scoring record with his 24th goal of the season. He passed Dejesus Herrera, who scored 23 goals during the 2018 season.
When asked what the team needs to work on, Bruner said, “We need to make sure that we play well in both halves.”

Harper College 4, Madison College 3
A three-goal second half propelled Harper College past Madison College, 4-3, in the championship of the NJCAA Region 4 Tournament held at Madison College on Oct. 22.
Harper College scored the first two goals of the second half, and never trailed after that despite Madison College battling back.
Dominck Ramirez, Voung and Richie Lima each scored in the match for the WolfPack, with the team’s final goal coming with just over a minute left to play.
Voung’s goal extended his school-record single-season total to 25. Voung’s goal total is the best in NJCAA Division III this season and had him five ahead of the next-best total as of Oct. 21.
Madison College finished the year at 12-4. A year ago, Harper ousted Madison College from the tournament as well, with the WolfPack losing on penalty kicks.
