Dallas avenged an overtime setback at home earlier in the year with one of its own at Southwestern University. Nicholas Vega put the Crusaders up 1-0 in the 88th minute but SU's Wil Mekelburg had an equalizer with just under a minute to play. Luke Schwarz, who assisted the first goal would convert on his 5th PK of the season for the game winner. Schwarz earned USCAA Athlete of the Week and the team appeared in herosports.com weekly recap.

The Crusaders opened the campaign with a victory and their season-high five goals came in the first match at home. Dallas rolled by Howard Payne University 5-1. Barton Holdridge, Hunter Haugland, Andrew Ciancone, Luke Schwarz, and Trae Hampton all tallied their first goals of the season.

Dallas recorded its first shutout of the season in 4-0 fashion against Hendrix College in the first of two at the Ozarks Tournament. A trio of goals come in the first half, with Chima Ogueri, Garrett Hammer, and Andrew Ciancone being responsible for the respective goals. Hunter Haugland added his second of the year in as many games as three freshmen contributed goals in the win.

Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) play began with a road win for the Crusaders with a 3-0 final at Schreiner University. After a scoreless 45 minutes, the away squad got the go-ahead scoring play on an own goal. Luke Schwarz and Hunter Haugland added goals apiece with about 20 minutes between each one.

Sticking to Schreiner, the Crusaders picked up a point in the standings at Irving in a rematch. The final was a 1-1 draw, the first of three this season, but Nicholas Vega was the one that made that possible on a game-tying netter in the 84th minute. That equalized an earlier goal by the Mountaineers at the 55:34 minute. Vega was assisted by Garrett Hammer and Luke Schwarz. Schwarz started the play on a corner kick.


Dallas finished with three draws, with two of them being shutouts. Overall, Dallas posted five total. Tino Gamueda worked three complete shutouts and had one complete clean sheet in UD's win at Schreiner. Jacob Chimento appeared in the games where Dallas blanked Hendrix and Centenary College (Oct. 2).
Luke Schwarz posted a career season with personal bests in goals (6), assists (5), and points (17). The midfielder shot 70.4 percent with a team-high 19 shots on frame out of 27 attempts. Schwarz also was a perfect 5-for-5 in penalty kick opportunities.
Barton Holdridge matched a career-high six goals for consecutive years. Two of them counted as game winners. He added two assists and finished second on the squad in points (14). His best individual performance was two goals to account for both first half scores in the Crusaders home triumph against Centenary, 4-0.
Chima Ogueri busted onto the scene his freshman year with three goals and two assists for eight points. Ogueri ranked third on the team in scoring and points.
Jake Schnell registered his lone goals of the season in the same match. One was a game-winning goal in a home win versus Texas Lutheran University (4-2).
Dallas ranked second in the conference in assists with 29. Seven individuals tallied multiple assists and 16 players had at least one in that category.
Tino Gamueda made the most starts of his four-year career by starting in all 19 appearances. Gamueda finished his final collegiate game having accumulated exactly 200 saves in four seasons. His 65 this year were six away from matching a personal best in 2015. The trio of shutouts added to his four from a year ago and gave him seven overall. He ranks 4th all-time in shutouts, saves, and goals against average among UD keepers.
