SAN ANTONIO (Sept. 25, 2021) – The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) men's soccer team dominated Texas A&M University-Texarkana (TAMUT) with a 4-0 victory on Saturday. The Saints improve to 3-3 overall and 2-0 in the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC). The Eagles fall to 3-5-1 overall and 0-1-1 in conference.
The Saints are undefeated in the all-time series against the Eagles at 7-0.
Freshman Roberto Poncia (FR/Codevigo (PD), Italy) opened the scoring for the Saints in the 29th minute. He scored on a header that was assisted by Javier Pena (JR/San Antonio, Texas). Shortly after, Norberto Lira (SR/Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico) increased the Saints lead to two also with a header. Poncia picked up the assist on the second goal after scoring the first. The Saints' offense exploded in the first half for 16 shots and eight corner kicks. They limited the Eagles to one shot and one corner kick.
