Brownsville, Tx- The UTB/TSC Men's soccer team is eager to hit the field after missing out on Sunday's game versus University of Houston-Victoria because of torrential rainfall in Victoria, Texas. They get to take out some much needed energy after losing a close gamein their last match versus TWU. First up for the UTB/TSC Men's team is Tyler College on Thursday at 1 p.m. then Bacone College on Saturday also at 1 p.m.
Both games are on the road.
After a good start to the season during non-conference matches the UTB/TSC Men's soccer team have won three out of their last four games. Head Coach Dan Balaguero still feels that his team has struggled as of late and doesn't want his team to relax.
He knows conference foes are gunning for them.
"We are going through a little bit if a tough spell, have not played well in any of the conference games yet. We started the season well playing a very tough non-conference schedule, we went into the majority of the non-conference games as the underdog and had that backs to the wall." said Balaguero. "Now this is being reversed on us after dominating the conference over the last five years. Teams are coming into games with us fired up. Texas college and Bacone will be no different. It's a long road trip and both teams will be desperate to turn us over."
Balaguero knows that the two road games this week will be crucial in the conference standings but he also feels that his team needs to peak at the right moment of the season to make a run for the postseason and beyond.
"I feel we are still In a position to have a great season, we just need to concentrate more in the final and defensive end of the field. Our focus always remains to be peaking come the end of October not September, but we must improve on our recent performances starting Thursday."
After this week's roadtrip the UTB/TSC Men's soccer squad returns home to the UTB/TSC Scorpion Field for a match versus Huston-Tillotson on October 11.
