The Lions soccer team split their pair of home games over the weekend and now has their eyes set on a deep playoff run yet again.

Texas A&M University- Commerce (9-3 Lone Star Conference, 13-5 overall) started off play by blowing out UT Permian Basin 7-1 on Friday night. The Lions have scored 12 goals against UT Permian Basin in just two matchups this year.

A&M- Commerce would later fall to Angelo State 0-1 on Sunday afternoon, however.

Angelo State avenged their 2-1 loss to the Lions back on Oct. 7 and in the process, handed A&M- Commerce their first and only home loss of the season.

The team concludes the regular season atop the Lone Star standings and will await their next opponent for the Lone Star Conference Soccer Championship, hosted by A&M- Commerce.

That game is set for Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m.
