Men’s soccer seniors finish their SMU careers with 51 wins, three conference championships and three NCAA tournament berths.
No. 5 SMU’s season came to an end in the NCAA Elite Eight on December 6 when the Mustangs fell to No. 1 Virginia, 3-2, in overtime.
Eight-seeded SMU (18-2-1) started the match off in the right foot when it broke away from the Virginia (20-1-1) back line in the second minute, resulting in a Garrett McLaughlin chance. But the AAC First-Teamer pushed his shot just right of the post to leave the scoreboard even.
The last six minutes of regulation would be a mad dash, as both teams looked to punch their ticket to the College Cup, but neither side found a winner, and the game went to overtime.
