SAGU Soccer Teams Drop Two in Muskogee
MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma -- The 250 mile trip did not produce the desired results for either the men's nor the women's soccer teams from Southwestern Assemblies of God University on Thursday afternoon. Bacone College took both ends of the doubleheader.
The Lady Lions fell to the Lady Warriors in a 4-0 verdict, their third loss by that score in as many league games. SAGU, now 2-10 overall, are 0-3 in the Red River Athletic Conference. Bacone is 5-3 and 2-1. Details of the game will be made available later.
Southwestern's men's squad were on the wrong side of a 5-1 decision. Tyrone Blackwell, the Warriors leading scorer, was at it again. He added a hat trick (three goals) on Thursday, which gave him nine goals this season. Bacone (pronounced BAY kone) won for the second straight game and are currently 5-6 overall and 2-1 in league action. Derrick Lugano and Abe Vinhas also scored for the Tribe.
SAGU is now 6-6. They are 0-3 in the Red River.
Match-Up Favorable to Bacone
Bacone has had Southwestern's number in recent seasons. While the Warriors went 4-13 two years ago, they topped the Lions 2-0. Last fall BC won, 3-2, in overtime. The Warriors finished with a 5-13 mark.
The Lady Lions have had similar struggles against Bacone as the SAGU men. Last season the Lady Warriors (2-12-2) won in Waxahachie, 1-0. The year before they blanked Team Lioness, 1-0, during BC's 4-13 season.
