TYLER, Texas — Blinn College men's soccer (1-2, 1-1) played a strong defensive game in order to hold No. 4 Tyler Junior College to one goal, but that was all the Apaches needed for a 1-0 conference win on Saturday night.
"To play a team as good as Tyler is good for a team as young as we are," said Michael McBride, Blinn head coach. "We really played well and learned a lot about ourselves. We managed to create some chances and are looking forward to playing Tyler again in Brenham."
The Apaches scored their only goal on a penalty kick in the 15th minute before the Buccaneers shut Tyler's offense down the remainder of the game.
Next, Blinn will travel to face off against Jacksonville College in a conference game on Sunday, September 8, at 4 p.m. The women's soccer team will take the field at 2 p.m.
Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 41 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
