UTB-TSC Men's Soccer Team Wins Conference Championship

The UTB-TSC men's soccer team wrapped up its second straight Red River Athletic Conference championship with a 2-0 victory Friday over Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie.

The Scorpions remained unbeaten in RRAC play with a 6-0 record and are now 11-4 overall.

"It wasn't real pretty, but a win is a win," Scorpion head coach Dan Balaguero said. "I'm thrilled for the players and everybody involved with the program. The second year to win a title is always harder than the first year."

UTB-TSC has two road games remaining on its regular season schedule. The Scorpions play at College of Santa Fe (N.M.) October 31 in a non-conference game and the University of the Southwest (N.M.) November 1 in the RRAC finale.

Friday's victory was also important because the Scorpions also clinched the #1 seed in the RRAC Tournament in Fort Worth November 6-8. UTB/TSC now has a bye from the quarterfinal round and will play its first tournament game in the semifinals Friday, November 7.
