I had a weekend full of Futbol, Football, and more Futbol!
Things got started Friday night with the soccer double-header at Mike Rose. The Lady Tigers played to a 1-1 draw with Alabama and the Tigers fell to 21st ranked Bradley 4-0. However, the men played with seven freshmen and it was only 2-0 with under five minutes to go. It was a hot and humid night and the teams I felt most for were Oral Roberts and UAB, who played at 3:00 that afternoon in the heat of the day.
Down to Oxford with the football team on Saturday and things didn't end up like we wanted and now we'll have a very key home conference opener this weekend against Rice. Hope to see you there.
Then, back to Mike Rose Sunday night to wrap up the Diadora Tournament. The Tigers jumped out to a 4-1 lead with a little over twenty minutes left, but Oral Roberts made a furious comeback to get to within one. OR had a chance with under ten seconds and missed on a bicycle kick as time expired. Assistant Media Relations Director Brandon Kolditz made his broadcast debuts when he sat in on the second half with me, he did great.
That's my weekend of futbol, football, and more futbol!
