Blinn College Men’s Soccer Edges Albion Hurricanes 1-0

The Blinn College men’s soccer team got a goal from forward Favio Chavez to nip the Albion Hurricanes Soccer Club 1-0 Saturday evening at Rankin Field in Brenham.

The game-winning goal was the first of Chavez’s college career as Blinn shut down the Hurricanes in the non-conference game that was added this week to the Buccaneers’ schedule. Blinn is now 6-4-2 on the season.

“It’s real exciting to see a guy like that be successful,” assistant coach Rudy Roediger said. “He’s been working hard for us and putting in the effort. No complaints.

“His goal came from hard work, nothing spectacular. You don’t get bonus points in this game for doing things hard. It’s not ice skating. He put himself in good position and scored the game-winning goal.”

It was Blinn’s fourth shutout of the year, and the Bucs have scored in 11 of their 12 games.

“I think we’ve had 13 guys who have scored at least one goal,” Roediger said.

Every player on Blinn’s roster got into the game, including both goalkeepers.

The Buccaneers will host Cap City Soccer Club on Saturday, Oct. 2, at 1 p.m. on Rankin Field, then return to conference play with a road trip Wednesday, Oct. 6, to Tyler Junior College
