St. Gregory's extends Lions skid to 10

Purple Pride entertains USAO on Tuesday

hernandez-jose-hustleWAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  The effects of Thursday’s heartbreaking 5-4 loss in overtime surely impacted Southwestern Assemblies of God University’s Saturday home soccer game against St. Gregory’s University.

After yielding the final four goals two days prior to hosting the Cavaliers, SAGU never got started. They were outshot 16-3 and dropped a 5-0 decision to St. Gregory’s.

The contest that pitted the bottom two clubs in the Sooner Athletic Conference was decided quickly.

Quick as a gunslinger’s draw, the Cavs scored just 2:36 into the match. They added two unassisted goals before halftime, then tacked on a pair of tallies, also unassisted, to complete the shutout.

With the victory, St. Gregory’s upped their overall ledger to 6-6-1 while improving their record in the Sooner to 2-4-1.

SAGU slid to their 10th loss in succession. Their mark in all games is 3-12 and are now 0-7 in the SAC. During their skid the Lions have been outscored by 40-14.

Entering the game the Cavaliers hadn’t scored more than once in their previous six games, and were outscored 8-2 in that stretch of play.

On Saturday the SAGU offense had three different players register solo shots. Their aggression didn’t warrant any corner kicks and were called for just two fouls. They did collect five yellow cards.

SGU had two corners and 11 fouls and no cards.

The Lions will be back in action on Tuesday afternoon. They are slated to host nationally ranked University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma (USAO) at 3:00pm.

The Drovers (9-4 overall / 6-1 in SAC) will carry a five game winning streak into the match.

SAGU’s season will end on November 4 when they entertain Oklahoma City University (7-5-2 / 3-2-2 SAC) at 6:00pm.
