Antoine Freitas and David Cato each scored second-half goals, but it wasn't enough as Dallas Baptist University edged McMurry University, 3-2, Monday night at the Patriot Soccer Field.
Offensively, Brian Robertson was the Patriots' go-to guy. The sophomore scored two of DBU's three first-half goals and assisted on the other. He also led DBU with five shots on goal.
Despite trailing early, the War Hawks (1-4-1) made a valiant second-half comeback.
Freitas (Salvador, Brazil/Seward County CC) scored on a pass from Jordan Miller (Missouri City, Texas/Elkins HS) at the 60:59-mark of the second half to put McM on board.
Cato (Canyon, Texas/Canyon HS) scored at the 88:15-mark of the second half to pull the War Hawks to within one.
McM returns to action Sept. 29 and play host to St. Edward's University at Edward's Field.
