This weeks results

West Texas A&M defeated Angelo St 4-1, after a 1-0 first half with a combined three shots. WT turned it up in the second half to produce three goals on 9 shots. Becky Hewson had a pair of goals in the match. The windy Sunday match with ACU provided no goals for either team throughout 110 minutes of play. WT won the shot war 12-6, and moves to a 5-2-1 conference mark.

Next up is a trip down I-40 for face NSU and ECU.

A&M Commerce rescheduled the Friday match with ECU for Tuesday to escape the weather (?). Sunday the Lions pounced on NSU 4-1, scoring two in each half. The rescheduled game was moved from the soccer pitch to the football stadium due to still wet conditions, and the Tigers yielded to the Lions 5-0. Commerce stands at 5-3 in conference play with road matches with Central Oklahoma and SWOSU this weekend.

Central Oklahoma advanced their march toward the top spot in the LSC by handling Midwestern 2-0 at home on Sunday. Central scored in the 4th minute and again in the first half, added strong defensive play in the second half to preserve the shutout win. The win pushes the Bronchos to 6-2 in conference play and in a position to earn the hosting rights of the conference tourney.

This weekend the Bronchos are at home against Commerce and TWU.

Midwestern scored an 84th minute goal to earn a 1-0 win at SWOSU. The Bulldogs packed the back and were outshot 25-7 in the contest. On Sunday two first half goals and stout defending by Central Oklahoma resulted in a shutout loss for the Mustangs.

Currently Midwestern sits at 5-3 in conference play and face ACU and Angelo at home this weekend.

ACU was in the drivers seat for the regular season conference championship before they took a detour by way of dropping a 1-0 match to ENM. The Cats put up 20 shots to the Zia’s 8 but could not convert. Sunday the Abilene side visited West Texas and left with a 0-0 2OT draw. This leaves ACU at 5-2-2 with a single game against Midwestern on the road this weekend.

Angelo State fell to WT A&M 4-1 on Friday but bounced back with a 1-0 win over ENM on Sunday. Brandi DeBacker’s 84th minute goal proved to be the winner. The Rambelles stand at 3-6 in conference play. Angelo hosts a non-conference match with UTPB on Wednesday before closing out conference play ( and likely their season) on Sunday at Midwestern.

ECU traveled to TWU on Sunday but were turned away in a 3-0 defeat. The rescheduled and relocated match with Commerce was played Tuesday and resulted in a 5-0 defeat.

The Tigers conference record is 2-6 and they are reduced to playing the spoiler role with ENM and West Texas visiting for matches this weekend.

TWU notched a couple of wins to keep their tourney chances alive with a 2-0 win over NSU on Friday. The match was equal in shots, corners and saves, but two second period goals provided the margin for the Pioneers. Against ECU on Sunday a 19-12 shot advantage produced a 3-0 shutout victory to move TWU to 5-3 in conference play. TWU leaves the friendly confines of their home pitch to try SWOSU and Central OK.

ENM began the weekend by deflating the conference leader ACU 1-0. The Zia’s scored in the 27th on their only first half shot, but were able to hold the advantage for the win. Sunday Angelo St turned the table on ENM, emerging with a 1-0 win. The Zia’s stand at 3-6 in conference play, with a lone match against ECU to round up their regular season.

NSU tried TWU on Friday and came away short, on the wrong end of a 2-0 result. Sunday in Commerce a 4-1 defeat resulted in a match that featured 31 fouls and 3 cards.

The Riverhawks fall to 1-6-1 in conference play, with their final weekend at home against WT and ENM.

SWOSU put up a valiant effort against Midwestern at home before surrendering an 84th minute goal for the 1-0 loss. The Bulldogs stand at 3-5 in conference matches. This weekend TWU and Commerce visit to complete the regular season.
