Blinn College women’s soccer falls to No. 1 Tyler, 2-0

The Blinn College women’s soccer team gave No. 1-ranked Tyler Junior College all it could handle but lost 2-0 Wednesday in Blinn’s home opener.

Tyler, the defending National Junior College Athletic Association national women’s soccer champion, scored two first half goals to take the win on Rankin Field in Brenham’s Hohlt Park. The Apaches scored three minutes into the game and added a second goal in the 25th minute but were shut out by Blinn in the second half.

“I was very pleased with the performance,” Blinn (0-2) coach Michael McBride said. “It’s never good to lose, but we learned a lot about the team. It was a much, much better performance than the previous game (a loss to Northeast Texas Community College). We gave them a game. We have lots of good things to take from it.”

McBride said there were few scoring chances as both teams looked to control the ball in the midfield.

The Bucs will travel to Trinity Valley Community College on Saturday for another conference matchup. That game will begin at 1 p.m.
