Waxahachie, Texas – October 3, 2015- It came down to two overtimes, but in the end, the University of Science & Arts-Oklahoma (USAO) topped the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s soccer team, 2-1.  USAO is currently ranked no. 20 in the NAIA with a record of 10-2.  The Lions are now 4-5-1.

The first half was left scoreless by both teams.  The Lions were able to get four shots on goal, but none of them were able to find the back of the net.

The Lions were the first to score. With nearly 40 minutes left in the second half, the ball was a flick over the defense from junior Danny Castro to Isai Velasquez Bonilla, who then headed the ball to Sammy Duarte for the goal.

With 20 minutes left in the second, USAO rebounded a shot off the left pole and fell at Harry Donaldson’s feet.  Donaldson was able to easily put the ball in the right side of the net, making the score 1-1.

The 1-1 score was enough to send the game into overtime.  Neither team was able to score in the first overtime.  Unfortunately, USAO’s Alex Breadman did score in the second overtime, giving the Drovers the win.

Senior goalkeeper Cesar Espana had an impressive game, getting 14 saves while allowing two goals.

The Lions will play a conference game at Southwestern Christian (7-3) on Tuesday, October 6, 2015.
