The T-Birds (4-1-0, 2-1-0 Region IX) are coming off a 1-0 shutout of Northeast Junior College last week in their first-ever home game. They also have a 3-2 overtime victory over No. 16 Laramie County Community College earlier this month.
Jesper Van Halderen, who scored the game-winning goal against the Golden Eagles, and Kevin Tauzia lead the team with two goals apiece while seven other players have netted one goal for the T-Birds.
