After the OLLU women’s soccer team won its sixth regular-season title with an undefeated 11-0 season and 7-0 in the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC), the team was hoping to add its sixth postseason title earlier today. Despite a hard-fought match, the No. 1 seeded Saints lost 1-0 to No. 2 seeded LSU-Shreveport (LSUS). The win would have sent the Saints to the NAIA National Championships, but they are still hopeful to earn an at-large bid. The women are hoping the selection committee recognizes the phenomenal season they have had.
The 2020 season included allowing just six opponent goals while scoring 24 goals. They are ranked 17th in the NAIA in shots on goal with 11.09. RRAC Offensive Player of the Year Baye Polansky (SR/Helotes, Texas) led the conference in points/game with 1.67 and goals/game at .78. Jaylin Seto (JR/Houston, Texas) led the conference in assists/game with .55, while Kyleigh Spree-Kolos (FR/Victoria, Texas) took the most shots in the RRAC with 53 for 4.82 per game. She also led in shots on goal with 30 for 2.73 per game.
The Saints won both the regular-season and tournament titles in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2019. This season, the Saints won the regular season.
Head Coach Arthur Salazar commented, “Unfortunately, today wasn’t our day. We just weren’t clean enough in the final third to create quality chances, and that’s something that we have struggled with all season. We give credit to LSUS – they worked really hard to defend and were able to deny us the equalizer.
“This one game doesn’t define who we are and what this team has been able to accomplish this year. Going 11-1 is extremely hard for any team to do, and these women did a heck of a job dealing with the pressure of the season. If we do get an at-large bid, we can have another chance to prove ourselves.”
