Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
October 8, 2014

After a fairly quiet weekend, things pick back up this week.  We’re hitting the stretch run for our fall sports with all five competing during the course of the weekend.  Our basketball teams start their practices one week from today and our softball team is in its non-traditional season.

Here’s a quick rundown of last week’s action:

MEN’S SOCCER:  lost at UDallas, 2-1 and defeated Austin College, 2-0.   After falling behind early, senior Justin Edwards tied the match just after halftime on a penalty kick goal.  UD’s Nathan Nwaeze’s second goal of the match was the difference.  Against AC, the Mountaineers dominated the match but it wasn’t until second half goals by Edwards (assist to junior Isaac Garcia) and junior Ryan Hernandez (assist by Nathaniel Olmos) put the contest away.  Sophomore Blake Lawson earned the assist but the SU defense allowed just one shot on goal in the match.

WOMEN’S SOCCER:  lost a pair of heartbreakers, 2-1, to both Dallas and Austin College.  In both cases, Schreiner started slowly allowing the opposition an early goal to put SU behind.  Against UD, freshman Heidi Workmon scored her first collegiate goal to tie the match two minutes later but the Crusaders got a late goal to win in regulation.  The same scenario played out against AC, but it was freshman Ruth Blackburn’s game-tying goal that sent the match into overtime and then a second overtime before AC could get the winning goal.

VOLLEYBALL:  lost at Howard Payne, 3-0.  Freshman Mallory Dunn had her best match of the season, putting away seven kills and chalking up a .280 attack percentage.  Senior Kelli Bolen had 15 assists and freshman Lauren McQueen had five kills and 11 digs.
