Central Christian College’s men’s soccer schedule will look drastically different this year as the Tigers join the Sooner Athletic Conference.
The Tigers were 9-8-2 last season, losing in the semifinals of the AII Conference Tournament. The SASC is expected to be a big step up in competition.
CCC coach Aaron Hoxie did set up the non-conference schedule for his team to build momentum as the seven games are against teams the Tigers were 6-1 against last year.
"I set the schedule up in such a way because I do not know what the conference is going to produce,” Hoxie said. “I have strong suspicions, however, the unknown still exists, so I chose to go this route. However, the teams are still filled with quality and we were a bit fortunate at times to come away with wins last year. Our guys will need to be ready to go and focused through the early parts of the campaign."
Sooner Conference games are indicated with an asterisk.
