Duluth, Minn. - A trip to Texas awaits the St. Scholastica men's soccer team as they fly out on Thursday.

The preseason pick to win their fifth straight UMAC regular season title will play Friday and Saturday in San Antonio as they'll first face the hosting #5 Trinity University Tigers and then, Southwestern University, another Texas team based in Georgetown. The first eight matches of the season for the Saints will be on the road, before they host Bethany Lutheran on September 26th.

"Two very strong teams (Trinity, southwestern university) and it will be incredibly hot down there, but we'll go down there and we'll see and we are going to pick ourselves. The first five games are incredibly difficult this year, probably the toughest schedule we have ever had, so we will know pretty soon with these new guys where we sit," says CSS Head Coach Barry Chastey.
