Dixie State University women’s soccer beat it’s previous record while DSU men’s soccer is one step closer to playing for a conference championship. 

Women’s soccer

The women’s team claimed its eleventh win over Hawaii Pacific University Thursday, beating last year’s record of ten wins.

The first goal for DSU was a shot from Tori Washington, but was scored with an own-goal from an HPU defender in the first half.

DSU scored another goal in the second half and held HPU to shut out, 2-0. 

Men’s soccer

Both coaches from men’s soccer said they were excited to see how the teams would match up against each other with DSU being No. 2
  and HPU No. 3 in the Pacific West Conference.

Emotions were high and cards were pulled, but DSU sealed the deal with its third goal in the second half with about 12 minutes left.

HPU men weren’t able to answer leading DSU to face Chaminade University Saturday, and one game closer to playing Fresno Pacific University for the PacWest Conference title.

The final score was 3-1.  

“It puts us in the position to have to win on Saturday to put us in that position for that final game,” head coach Josh Pittman said.  “We still have a lot of work to do.”
