LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - Trinity (12-1-1, 10-1-0), Southwestern (9-4-1, 7-3-1) and Texas Lutheran (8-5-0, 7-4-0) all earned a pair of important SCAC wins last week as teams battle for position heading into the final two weeks of the men’s soccer regular season.
Trinity opened the week with a come from behind overtime victory against TLU last Wednesday. The Tigers scored in the 71st minute to tie the game and scored the game-winner in the 100th minute for the 2-1 victory. Trinity then responded to its lone loss in SCAC play this year by shutting out Dallas (7-4-0, 6-3-0), 3-0, on Sunday.
TLU bounced back from its loss to Trinity on Wednesday by defeating Colorado College (10-5-0, 8-4-0), 2-1, on Friday and Johnson & Wales (5-7-1, 3-7-1), 3-1, on Sunday. The seven wins in conference play tie a Bulldog record for most SCAC wins in a season since TLU joined the league in 2013.
Southwestern posted a 2-1 mark last week in league play, defeating Schreiner (3-11-2, 2-9-2), 4-0, on Tuesday, falling to JWU on Friday and defeating Colorado College, 3-2, in overtime on Sunday.
