CBC players
receive honors

Central Baptist College’s Sabelo Hlongwane and Josh Reed have earned all-conference honors in the Midland Collegiate Conference in soccer.

Hlongwane, a senior forward from Johannesburg, South Africa, was named to the All-MCAC first team. Hlongwane led the Mustangs with 14 goals and seven assists in 16 games played.

“Sabelo has had a very strong senior season,” said coach Phillip Bohn. “He has been our most dangerous attacking player while continuing to improve throughout the season. When it’s all said and done, he will have left a lasting impression on our program.”

Reed, a freshman center midfielder from Sheffield, England, was named to the second team. Reed played in 15 games for the Mustangs scoring one goal with two assists.

“To be named to an all conference team as a freshman is an honor Josh should be very proud of,” Bohn said. “He has done a great job as the engine of our team from the midfield, something that is a very tough task for anyone, much less a freshman.”

CBC (7-10, 2-3), the No. 4 seed in the conference tournament, will play at host to No. 1 seed Oklahoma Wesleyan at 12:30 p.m. Friday at Centennial Soccer Park.

No. 2 seed Bellevue will face No. 3 seed Waldorf in the other semifinal match at 10 a.m.
