Ok, so maybe it wasn't as huge a shocker as I stated, but I had high expectations of possibly beating Sam Houston (SHSU). Things went well early, we got a SHSU penalty deep in their territory, when we took advantage of a penalty kick to take a 3 - 0 lead early in the first half.
The line up is:
1. Caleb, 2. Nicky, 3. Ryan, 4. Conner, 5. Aly, 6. Andrew P. 7. Daniel, 8. Kevin, 9. Michael, 10. Andrew W. 11. Coleman, 12. Chase, 13. Seth, 14. Eric, 15. Zack
And a lot of replacement players.
The first half came, we kicked off and played SHSU hard, but when SHSU was penalized in the middle of the half, UTD took advantage of that, by kicking a penalty kick between the uprights. It was a tough match, both sides were able to fight for territory from both sides of the lines. SHSU was only able to score a try in the first 25 minutes. The first half ended UTD 3, SHSU 7
The second half was a dog fight, both sides fighting for teretory, but it was Sam Houston St. winning the second half as well as the overall match. They were able to put together a second half Try which put the match out of reach for the men of UT Dallas. The half ended SHSU 14. UT Dallas 3.
With SMU not showing up for their first match, means that we would have played SMU if they showed up, but since they did not show, UT Dallas got the victory bye match, which puts UT Dallas into the final 8 spots. UT Dallas will be playing UTSA Sunday morning at 9:30am. Seems kind of fitting that we began our season/year against UTSA, only feels like we need to continue out everything.
I'll update this web site as soon as I know anything.
