INDIANOLA, Iowa – On a frigid Friday night at Buxton Stadium, the Simpson men’s soccer team throttled Coe 3-0 and senior Tyler Neumann became Simpson’s all-time leader in assists.

It came on a cross into the box in the 51st minute to freshman Darius Doswell, Neumann notched his 22nd career assist, breaking the all-time record previously held by Corey Miller (2006-09) and Henry Petersen (2000-03).

“It’s cool for a personal record, but at the same time it’s a cool record because I’m also able to contribute to the team. It’s a team record considering I can’t get those points without my teammates, so in that sense, it’s pretty special,” Neumann said.

The Storm dominated possession on the night, outshooting the Kohawks 29-1 (11-0 on goal).

Garrett Pochop tallied the game’s first goal in the 30th minute with a, putting one in from just outside the box and Collin Hemann found the back of the net off of a free kick in the 90th minute.

“What you saw today was a team that is sick of losing close games,” said head coach Rick Isaacson. “We’ve got to be more of an opportunistic team, right now we’re doing a nice job of controlling the tempo of games and competing, we’ve just got to start to score goals when we get opportunities.”

The Storm will soak in this win as they won’t be back on the pitch until Saturday, Oct. 24 at Wartburg.
