Trinity (16-2-1, 13-1-0 SCAC) will be the No. 1 seed at the SCAC event November 8-10, to be held in Georgetown. The Tigers, who won their 14th consecutive game, are defending SCAC champions. Southwestern dropped to 13-6-1 and 11-2-1 SCAC. The Pirates had upset the Tigers, ranked 10th at the time, by a score of 1-0 on Sept. 10 in San Antonio.

The only score of Friday’s tightly played matchup came in the 24th minute, on a goal by Tom Carwile. Yuri Ribeiro supplied the assist. Carwile registered his third game-winner and seventh goal of the campaign. Ribeiro now has 13 assists to his credit.

Tiger goalkeeper Matt Cardone produced two saves in the crucial game. Trinity led 13-7 in total shots, and held a 6-2 advantage in shots on goal.

The SCAC will announce the pairings for the tournament, with the winner receiving an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III playoffs.
