Finally. After 4 long weeks of practice, an encouraging scrimmage against Texas, and three games that were cancelled, Southwestern stepped on the field for the first time this past Saturday for a game that meant something.

Hosting the upstart Oklahoma Sooners, new to the LSA, and playing in Div. B this year, the Bucs wanted to find out where they where at this point.

With the largest roster in the past 10 years, Southwestern suited up 32 players and was able to get every single one of them in the game.

Oklahoma has played several games and has markedly improved each game, showing a poise that most first or even second year teams are unable to muster.

Southwestern comes in with a team that only lost 2 main players from last season's historic championship run. However, those two players were both All-Americans at attack.

Over the next few games, our hope is to find the system(s) and players that will allow us to fill this huge void.

One thing that has stayed constant, is our defense. The entire defense is returning, including All-American Alex Gette, who picked up where he left off last year with a goal of his own, and Rookie of the year Jake Dickson at Goalie.

The defense led the way the entire game, only allowing one goal to be scored on it, on a 2 man down situation. The other goal came from a knocked down pass from behind the crease from one of our defenders that bounced off our defenders leg and trickled in.

With a final score of 11-2, Southwestern was able to see many things that it needed to work on. The most important being penalties. Southwestern racked up almost an entire quarter worth of penalty minutes. This is something that is very uncharacteristic and that really inhibited the flow of the game and our offense to find a rhythm.

Pritchett and Jeffocat led the way in the point category, while several players were able to contribute offensively.

Jones, newcomers Irish and Fleschig all played solid games, as well as the usual suspects of Daulton, Nelson, and Kerr. Claiborn received the game ball for helping to lead a solid effort on defense, and Sample, Lockwood and Arrington all showed that they need as much time on the field as possible with their hustle.

The entire team recognized we have work to do, especially as our next game on Saturday is against Preseason #20 in the nation Ft. Lewis Skyhawks, out of Durango Colorado. This will be a very tough test for the Bucs early in the season, before heading back to Georgetown on Sunday for a game against the TCU Horned Frogs.

We would like to thank the members of the University of Oklahoma, a very classy team for coming down to Southwestern and playing. We wish them the best of luck as they continue the rest of their season.
