Weekend of SAGU Athletics ends well!

WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  The Southwestern Assemblies of God University football Lions roared to a 21-10 triumph over Oklahoma Baptist University on Saturday afternoon to give SAGU a huge victory this weekend. The game was played in front of a crowd of over 4,900 in Shawnee, Ok.

A detailed article on all games played on Friday and Saturday will be posted on Sunday.

A summary of the weekend action:

VOLLEYBALL

Earlier on Saturday morning the Lady Lions volleyball team was taken in three sets by No. 21 ranked Wayland Baptist University, 3-0. The Pioneers, 19-3 overall and 4-1 in the Sooner Athletic Conference, topped SAGU 25-18, 25-21, and 25-20.

Team Lioness, 10-9 and 3-4 in the SAC, were led by Kassy Cox (Lufkin, Tx / Lufkin HS), with 14 kills.

SAGU has a local road match on Tuesday before playing at home on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

WOMEN'S SOCCER

The day before, Friday, the women's soccer club was blanked by Mid-America Christian University, 2-0.

The Lady Evangels, 6-3 and 1-2, held SAGU to just four shots while extending their winning streak to six in a row over the Lady Lions. SAGU takes to the road on Tuesday with a game against Southwestern Christian University, 6-2-1.

MEN'S SOCCER

In men's soccer action, the Purple Pride dropped a 4-1 decision to MACU, 5-3-1 and 1-2. The Lions, now 3-6 in all games, is 0-1 in the Sooner.

They were tied at 1-1 late in the first half after a goal by Santiago Pino (Medellin, Colombia / Frisco HS) . SAGU plays at Southwestern Christian University (6-3, 1-1 in SAC) on Tuesday.

FOOTBALL

After a slow start in Shawnee, Oklahoma in which the Lions trailed the Bison 10-0 at halftime, SAGU dominated the game. A touchdown run by James Hopkins (Ferris, Tx / Ferris HS, NW Okla State) , and Dylan Moore (Denton, Tx / Guyer HS) and Caleb Shelly (Cold Spring, Tx / Cold Spring HS) caught scoring passes from Reid Golson (Grandview, Tx / Grandview, Howard Payne ).

The offense supported a defense that pitched a second half shutout. The Lions had a long list of big plays after intermission.

The Lions moved into first place in the Central States Football League with a 2-2 overall record. They are 1-0 in the conference. SAGU allowed the Bison to gain only 89 yards on 25 plays after intermission. Jeff Howeth (Dallas, Tx / Highland Park HS, NW Ok St ) paced the defense with 11 tackles.

SAGU has a critical home date with Langston University next Saturday at 2:00pm.
