Waxahachie, TX .- Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s soccer went on a short trip to Dallas, TX and the campus of Dallas Baptist University (DBU). The SAGU Lions took on the DBU Patriots in a soccer match under the lights. Game time was moved up to 6:00 pm due to the threat of rain. DBU downed the Lions (0-5-1, 0-0-0) 2-0 in the game.

Lion Scoring Summary

Lion Review

  • NCAA DII DBU was a decidedly larger team physically than SAGU enjoying a height advantage at every position.
  • SAGU and DBU played a scoreless first half with both teams moving the ball in open field.
  • DBU played a man down from the 40:57 mark of the 1 st half when an ejection occurred on a red card.
  • DBU led the Lions 10-6 in shots and 4-1 in shots on goal.
  • While DBU collected the only red card of the game SAGU had two yellow cards and committed 12 fouls as they scrapped to play with the larger DBU squad.
  • Once again, the Lions could not generate an offensive punch despite having two excellent opportunities in the second half.
  • SAGU continues to play an improving, physical defense that has not allowed more than two goals in a game since the first game of the season.

Oancea’s Opinion

  • “That’s one of the slowest games I think we have played so far and we made too many poor decisions. The penalty kick in the 49th minute and the retake were difficult calls to overcome. But that is not something we can control and have have to focus on what we can control and we did not have that focus. We fell in the trap of grabbing and complaining versus focusing on our game plan.”
  • “We will dust ourselves off and move on to the next game on Saturday.”

The Next Step
