Angelina College soccer teams will on Tuesday host a doubleheader, with the Lady Roadrunners taking on non-conference foe Brookhaven College and the Roadrunners taking on conference opponent San Jacinto College.

The Roadrunners are coming off a tough weekend in which the team lost Friday at Jacksonville College and Saturday at home against No. 4 Tyler College. Jacksonville took the Friday contest by a 3-2 score, with Luis Garcia and Santiago Maya scoring for the Roadrunners.

Fewer than 24 hours later, the ‘Runners squared off against the fourth-ranked Apaches and just didn’t have enough gas in the tank in a 3-0 loss.

AC will try to bounce back against San Jac, a team currently locked in a three-way tie for second place in the Region XIV standings. The Coyotes downed Jacksonville 5-1 on Saturday.

The Lady Roadrunners moved into third place in the conference standings with Friday’s 4-1 win at Jacksonville. Kennedy Sessions, Jade Dewbre, Camryn Garcia and Naddia Garcia each scored in the win.
