TLU's tournament run ends in SCAC semi with 2-1 overtime loss to No. 5 Trinity
(Georgetown) - Texas Lutheran's run in the 2018 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Tournament came to a close Saturday with a 2-1 overtime semifinal loss to No. 5 Trinity University.

Top-seeded Trinity struck first with a goal in the fourth minute with Quentin Van Der Lee assisting on a Jacob Hallenberger goal that gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead.

That lead was short-lived though, as Edgar Molina equalized in the 16th minute for the Bulldogs. Luis Green and Braulio Adam registered the assist.

Following the first 45 minutes of action, Trinity's defense stiffened and held TLU to just two shots the rest of the game.

Hallenberger had a shot on goal saved in the 68th minute, then Fraser Burns had an on-target attempt stopped with less than 10 minutes to play in regulation. The only shot of the half for the Bulldogs came early in the period by Molina, but missed wide left.

In overtime, TLU's Green took the first attempt after just 18 seconds of action, but the shot was blocked.

Burns had another shot on goal saved with just under three minutes remaining, then Andrea Codispoti found Burns for the game-winner less than a minute later, and the Tigers pulled off the win with less than two minutes left in the overtime period.

TLU received seven saves from senior goalkeeper Brendan Soto, who finished the tournament with 12 total saves.

Blake Lieberman made one save for the Tigers.

Trinity out-shot TLU 15-5 with a 10-2 advantage in shots on goal.

The match was the final TLU soccer contest for three Bulldog seniors: Soto, Heriberto Perales (Del Rio/Del Rio), and Nathan Sevigny (San Antonio/Steele).

TLU advanced to Saturday's semifinal with a 5-1 quarterfinal win over the University of Dallas on Friday. Green and junior defender Cameron Townes each recorded a pair of goals for the Bulldogs.

Freshman midfielder Nicolas Medina collected a goal, and sophomore forward Edgar Molina and senior defender Nathan Sevigny each registered an assist.

TLU Women's Soccer season comes to close in SCAC quarterfinal
(San Antonio) - The Texas Lutheran women's soccer team closed out its 2018 season with a 2-2 tie in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Soccer Championship quarterfinal after the University of Dallas advanced on penalty kicks, 4-2.

TLU, the tournament's No. 3 seed, ended the year with an overall mark of 8-5-4.

Sixth-seed Dallas (3-10-4) moves on to the SCAC Championship semifinal. The Crusaders will face No. 2 seed Southwestern at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Trinity University's Paul McGinlay Field.

In the Friday match, also at McGinlay Field, the Bulldogs fell behind 1-0 in the first half and 2-1 in the second half but battled back each time to tie.

Bailey Nimtz (New Braunfels/Canyon) curved in a corner kick for the first Bulldog goal. Nimtz's goal came in the second half, at the 54:23 mark of the match.

Nimtz would answer again for TLU in the 82nd minute. With TLU trailing 2-1, Nimtz knocked home a penalty kick. The penalty kick came after a Dallas foul in the box.

TLU had several good scoring chances late in regulation and in each of the overtime sessions, but the team could not find the back of the net.

In the two overtimes, TLU out-shot Dallas 6-2 and had a 3-0 edge in shots on goal.

For the match, TLU out-shot Dallas 29-15 and had as many shots on goal (15) as Dallas had shots. Dallas keeper Olivia Severson made 13 saves in 120 minutes of action. TLU keeper Stephanie Barrientos (Mission/Sharyland) collected seven saves.

In the penalty kick shootout, Dallas took a quick 1-0 lead and never trailed.

Barrientos made a save on the fourth Dallas attempt to keep TLU alive, but Severson made a save on the very next TLU attempt to put Dallas one successful penalty kick from victory.

With Dallas leading 3-2 in penalties, Elisa Duran sent her squad to the SCAC semifinal round with a conversion.

The match was the final TLU soccer contest for three Bulldog seniors: Aubrie Wells (Houston/Lutheran South Academy), Jessica Coronado (McAllen/Memorial), and Leslie Flores (McAllen Memorial).
