Pugliese, Horton Lead Lady Lions Offense

WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- The Southwestern Lady Lions continue to work hard and prepare for their 9-game league season. The Red River Athletic Conference has ten teams, and SAGU will play each of them, including newcomer LSU-Shreveport.

Southwestern is currently 1-5. The strength of the team so far has been the play of their defense, from midfield to the back line and in the net. Team Lioness is yielding just 2.14 goals per game. It has been the lack of offensive production that has drawn much of the focus.

The squad's two goals have been scored by Natalie Horton (Corsicana, Tx / Corsicana HS) and Noelle Pugliese (Lee's Summit, Mo / Lee's Summit North HS). The assists have come from Madison Wells (Farmers Branch, Tx / R.L. Turner HS) and Kerri Guinn (Nevada, Tx / Community HS).

SAGU has a pair of non-conference games this week. On Thursday, September 16, they travel to the northwest Dallas suburb, Richardson, to face Dallas Christian College for a 3:00pm game. This Saturday morning they play host to Bethany College (Kansas). The game starts at 11:00am.
