VICTORIA, TEXAS (Oct. 26, 2019) – The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) women's soccer team defeated the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) 4-1 on Saturday to capture the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) title - the Saints fifth title in seven years. They missed the title the last two seasons and won the previous four in a row.
OLLU finishes the regular season 10-4-1 and 7-2 against RRAC opponents. UHV ends at 5-2-2 overall and 9-6-2 in the conference. The Jaguars will be the No. 6 seed in the postseason tournament.
Head Coach Arthur Salazar commented on the victory, saying, "I'm extremely proud of what this group has been able to accomplish. Today was a really good performance by the team. They could have easily thrown in the towel after the two mid-conference losses, but they showed a lot of character and battled back to give themselves a shot at the regular-season title. This is just another step in the process that we will enjoy for now but will get back to work on Monday."
The Saints scored three goals in the first half, with two from Andrea Villarreal (FR/Cypress, Texas). She also picked up an assist on Dawson Brinkley (SO/San Antonio, Texas)'s goal at the 30th minute. Villarreal's first goal in the second minute is the fastest the Saints have scored a goal this season.
The Saints outshot UHV 24 to 2, with 14 of the shots being on goal. OLLU finishes the season with three straight conference wins.
Dawson Brinkley finished the regular season leading the team in goals, shots and shots on goal. Jaylin Seto (SO/Houston, Texas) led the team in assists with six. The Saints scored four or more goals in a game four times this season. They also recorded six wins in which they didn't allow a goal.
