Clarksville, Ark.-The University of the Ozarks men's soccer team remains unbeaten after a 1-0 win over American Southwest Conference opponent East Texas Baptist University on Saturday.
The Eagles improved their overall record to 11-0-1 and ASC record to 6-0-1. The Eagles, who were picked to finish first in a conference preseason poll, have a chance to surpass last season’s school record 15 wins. With three conference matches remaining against East Division opponents, the Eagles have a chance to clinch a playoff spot by winning one of those matches. “We’re excited and pleased with our results so far,” said head coach Dave De Hart, who is now 26-7-1 in his last 34 matches. “The plan is to continue to work hard towards our goal of a conference championship.” The Eagles continue to put up impressive numbers. Ozarks has outscored its opponents 49-8 and are leading the ASC in goals per game (4.08), shots per game (23.27), points per game (12.40), assists per game (3.80) and goals allowed per game (.60). The team has already broke several school records and will likely break numerous others including goals in a season and points in a season. Earlier this year senior forward Marcos Gonzalez broke a NCAA III record by recording eight assists against Rhema Bible College on September 4. The Eagles will face Hendrix College on October 10 in Conway at 4 p.m.
