The men’s club soccer team’s first season came to an end this weekend at the Region IV Tournament in Lubbock.The team advanced to the tournament after winning the Lone Star Men North region, part of the Texas Collegiate Soccer League.
The team lost 2-0 to Texas Tech on Friday, said defender Smith Ferguson.
Ferguson said traveling for five hours before the game was a factor.
Midfielder Trey Ordonez said, “The Texas Tech team controlled the game, but we were able to keep up with them.”
The club tied Stephen F. Austin 1-1 Saturday.
Ordonez said they should have won against SFA.
“It was just one of those games where we couldn’t finish,” he said.
The team was scheduled to play a Texas club team Saturday night, but Texas didn’t show up to the game and had to forfeit.
Including the tournament results, the club team finished its season with a record of 7-2-2.
“We did really well – better than expected,” Ordonez said.
Ordonez said the team plans to play another season next semester.
