  • UT-Tyler outshot the Lions 24-1 for the match.
  • In a fairly clean game fouls were limited 8-6 in favor of UT-Tyler. No yellow or red cards were issued.
  • Issa Buhirwa (SO/Fort Worth, TX) , had the Lions lone shot and shot on goal on the evening.

Oancea’s Opinion

  • “In the 21st minute we were very flat and slow on clearing a simple ball allowing a goal. With three minutes left in the 1st half a similar situation occurred and poor awareness in clearing the ball allowed the ball to end up in the back of the net. We can’t make decisions like that and expect to compete against a very good and organized team. Second half we thought we started fixing things and within the 2nd minute of the half the same exact thing happened. We need to be able to compete and I hope we can learn to become consistent in our games.

The Next Step

SAGU men’s soccer goes on the road and returns to conference action on October 5 th in Bethany, OK at 3:00 pm against Southwestern Christian University.

As a leading Christian university, SAGU educates and prepares individuals who want to serve Christ and others. SAGU helps students discover and develop their God-given callings in a Spirit-empowered, learning community.

We believe in affordable tuition, made possible in part through the financial support of donors who embrace the mission of SAGU and the importance of affordable, accredited programs to train Christians for leadership in ministry, business, education, and service.
