Waxahachie, Texas- August 26th, 2014- Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men's soccer defeat Dallas Christian College 3-1 in 2014 season opener.

Assistant Coach Jeff Loftin said, "It was difficult in a non traditional way. The opposition was dedicated to what they wanted to do and the width of their pitch helped them keep the game compact."

SAGU fell behind 1-0 after having a great portion of possession in the 19th minute.

SAGU answered in the 28th minute through Robert Ambrosie. The Romanian international hit a first time shot 20 yards  out as the ball was deflected on a SAGU corner kick by Juan Herrera. The goal was exactly what SAGU needed.

SAGU took the lead in the 43rd minute of the first half.  Loftin believes that goal gave SAGU a needed boost, "Going into halftime with the lead is crucial in any game. It is huge for team moral and gave us a lot of momentum."

SAGU then sealed the game in the 88th minute on a set piece on the left side of the pitch. Sophomore Danny Castro played a well-placed set piece back post to William Elliott who headed the ball down to Walther Cavazos who slotted the ball in the open net.

SAGU hosts Oklahoma Wesleyan University on August 27th at Lions Park behind the Sheaffer Center at 4:00 p.m.
