MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — The 2016 Central Michigan soccer team took its place in the record books Sunday, defeating Oakland, 1-0, in a non-conference game at the CMU Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium to improve to 8-0-0, the best start in program history.
The Chippewas eclipsed the previous best start, 7-0-0, set in 2006.
“I thought we put out a real charged and emotional performance today,” said CMU coach Peter McGahey. “I think (the record) is a pretty neat recognition. Considering the long history our program has, to be able to set a new record is really special and is a memory people will look back on when they talk about this 2016 team.
