Men lose beatdown to No. 5

University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, ranked fifth in the nation, shut-out the Golden Eagles 3-0 during Saturday’s match.

This is the second straight conference loss for the team, who had previously fallen to Oklahoma Baptist 1-0.

All three goals were scored in the first half. In the 27th minute, Perry Sansford brought the Drovers up 2-0.

Sansford assisted in the other two goals scored during the match.

He currently ranks first in the conference in goals.

USAO attempted 14 shots on goal during the game, 11 thwarted by JBU junior Pablo Garcia.

The Golden Eagles totaled three shots on goal for the match.

“This seems to be repetitive, but a lackluster first half cost us the game,” Head Coach John Miglarese said. “That being said, I’m proud of the way we battled in the second half despite the score.”

USAO, Wayland Baptist and Lubbock Christian are dominating the Sooner Athletic Conference, each team bearing zero losses within the conference.

Mid-America Christian, St. Gregory’s and JBU have yet to win a conference game.

On Oct. 11, the Golden Eagles face off against the Wayland Baptist Pioneers in an away game, kicking of at 7p.m.
