North Central Missouri College eSports kicked off the 2019-20 season with a scrimmage win over the University of Central Missouri on Monday. The team won the Overwatch matchup 2-1.
The Pirates played two objective games back to back and then we ended on playing a game of payload. Tuesday, the Pirates began their Rocket League season as well. They dropped all three games against West Virginia University Potomac State College. Scores for the games were 3-0, 4-0, and 6-2 in defeat.
Pirates Coach Chris Flowers commented to NCMCPirates.com, “Although my players were filled with anxiousness/nerves and it showed on the virtual field, we still played really good defense. Our goalie defense was a bit on the weak side and needs improvement for sure. We were missing shots/hits we normally hit, etc. WVUPSC has two players ranked D1 which is the top 1% of all players. They were a very well put together program with really good recruits,” detailed Flowers.
Next action for NCMC will be more Rocket League on Thursday evening and Overwatch on Sunday.
