SCAC
« on: April 09, 2021, 04:37:07 pm »
Trinity (Texas) play Colorado College tonight at 6:00 p.m. CST at Trinity. It should be a good game and give both sides an idea about how good they are this Spring.  They are tied at the top of the SCAC table on points but Trinity has the edge on goal differential, by one goal.

Trinity has a very high quality video-streaming production. May be worth checking out. Here’s to a good game.  Good luck to both sides.

An entertaining opener as St. Thomas scores two second-half goals to send it into OT after trailing TLU 0-2.

2 OTs determine nothing, St. Thomas takes it in PKs:

TLU:  X X ✓ X - 1
STT:  ✓ ✓ ✓ -  - 3

Three beautiful saves by the St. Thomas keeper were the difference.

Centenary led 2-0 at half, Colorado claws one back at 65' despite playing a man down.

Colorado dominated play in the second half despite being a man down most of it but could not find the equalizer.   Centenary gets its first win in SCAC championship play 2-1 and will face Southwestern in the second semifinal tomorrow.

St Thomas gets probably the biggest win of their young D3 campaign, defeating Trinity 2-1 in the SCAC semis.  The first goal came off a beautiful deep ball that found UST's Jair Perez in stride outside the left side of the box and he buried a cross-goal shot in the right side of the net - Trinity's keeper never had a chance (see an unfortunately blurry video here).  A second goal was added in the second half; Trinity got one back at 80' but could not find the equalizer.  Things got hectic at the end with two yellow cards handed out to the victors in the last minute.  The star of yesterday's win was huge again today, as Rodrigo Lazo stopped at least ten Trinity shots on goal.

The Celts will play the winner of Southwestern-Centenary for the SCAC championship tomorrow.

Continuing the theme of this season's SCAC championships, Centenary upset Southwestern 0-0 (3-1 PK) to set up a championship match between this year's 5th and 6th seeds.   Per the conference office, this is the first time two teams have made it from the quarterfinals to the final round.

I’ve been watching the SCAC for a while.   Trinity is still the team to beat, but competition is getting better. This makes the conference a lot more interesting.  There will some heavy legs out there today.  Good luck to both teams and we’ll done.

Centenary wins its first-ever SCAC men's soccer championship, 0-0 (5-3 PKs) over St. Thomas, in a defensive battle that saw only seven total shots on goal in regulation and two extra periods.  According to the SCAC's writeup, St. Thomas had the better run of play in regulation with a 22-11 shot and 5-2 SOG advantage, but Centenary's Sami Borchalli was equal to the challenge.  Borchalli's single save in penalties would also be the difference on this day.

The Gents, 4-5-3 overall (4-1-3 home, 0-4 road) this season, won the school's third-ever SCAC championship in any sport.  St. Thomas ends its season 5-2-5.

There being no recent "D3 players in the pros" thread that I can find, this is as good a place as any to post this:

Matt Cardone (Trinity (TX) '14), the last original member of USL Championship side San Antonio FC, yesterday announced his retirement from the sport.  The keeper holds franchise records for appearances (109), saves (328), clean sheets (26), minutes played (9,650), and his nine saves against Sporting Kansas City II on July 30, 2016 are tied for the most in single-match club history.  In USL Championship history, his saves rank eighth all-time while his shutouts and appearances tie him for third.  In later years injuries became an issue, most notably last season when, after leading the team to a second-place Western Conference finish, he was injured for the year late in the final game of the season.  SAFC signed Jordan Farr on loan from Indy Eleven for a playoff run that ended with a loss in the championship match, and after SAFC signed Farr this season Cardone never regained the starting role.  His only appearance this year was in a second-round US Open Cup victory.

Cardone's last match will be this Saturday against Charleston Battery.  He plans to enroll in the law program at SMU this fall.  https://www.uslchampionship.com/news_article/show/1231136

Looking forward to being a part of this group and hopefully seeing Trinity make a deep run in D3. Will vie to be #2 Trinity University soccer fan next to Ron Boerger
