 The field has been set for the 2018 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men’s Soccer Tournament as Austin College (6-5-2, 5-5-1) claimed the final spot over the weekend, joining Trinity (13-1-1, 11-1-0), Colorado College (12-5-0, 10-4-0), Dallas (8-5-0, 7-4-0), Texas Lutheran (9-6-0, 8-5-0) and Southwestern (9-5-1, 7-4-1).

Austin College finally got back to action after weather forced three-consecutive cancellations and earned its second-straight SCAC win, beating TLU, 2-1 on Sunday. The win not only secured the ‘Roos’ spot in the conference tournament, but it marked the first time since 2016 Austin College has won back-to-back SCAC contests.

The TU Tigers remained at the top of the table after defeating Schreiner (3-12-2, 2-10-2), 8-1, on Friday. The eight goals marked a new season-high for TU in a contest and tied for the most in a single game since scoring nine in a win back in 2013.

Colorado College bounced back with two critical home SCAC wins last week to jump into sole possession of second. CC defeated Johnson & Wales (6-8-1, 4-8-1), 2-1, on Tuesday and posted its 10th shutout of the season, defeating Centenary (2-14-2, 0-13-1), 1-0, on Friday. 2018 marks the fifth time in the last six years Colorado College has earned double-digit victories in league play.

Despite splitting contests last week, Dallas jumped to third in the standings, bouncing back from an opening week loss to Texas Lutheran to beat Southwestern, 2-1, on Sunday. The TLU Bulldogs currently sit in fourth following a win over the Crusaders and a loss to the ‘Roos last week. At the moment, Southwestern resides in the fifth spot after falling in its lone contest of the week at Dallas.

The regular season concludes this week as all nine teams are in action with every point becoming critical to seeding as the 2018 SCAC Tournament is set to begin on November 2nd. The complete tournament bracket will be available following the conclusion of Sunday’s matches .
