Central Methodist men’s soccer wins second straight national title

IRVINE, Calif. - For the second straight season, the Central Methodist men's soccer team is the last team standing.

The first ranked Eagles defeated Hastings, 3-1, to capture the 2019 NAIA National Championship.

Three first-half goals powered the win for the Eagles. Jayton Johnson, Rodrigo Peredes and Junior Kazeem each scored for CMU.

The Eagles have lost just three games in the past two seasons and now get to enjoy another off-season as national champions before trying to repeat for a third time next season.
