Nationally Ranked Tyler Takes 3-1 Win Over Blinn College Men’s Soccer Team

Third-ranked Tyler Junior College posted a 3-1 win over the Blinn College men’s soccer team Wednesday at Hohlt Park in Brenham.

Tyler took a 1-0 lead in the first half and extended that to 2-0 before Blinn’s Marco Rodriguez chipped in a goal to pull the Bucs back within one in the conference matchup. However, the Apaches put the game out of reach with a late free kick that found the back of Blinn’s net.

“They’re ranked third in the country, but we gave them a game,” said Blinn head coach Michael McBride. “We won’t have many teams that we’ll play against that will be that good, and if we can hang with them, we should be able to hang with other teams in the region.”

Blinn is now 2-2-1 on the season and 0-2 in conference play. The Bucs have another conference game Saturday, when they will travel to Trinity Valley Community College.
