KANSAS CITY, Kan. – A pair of shutouts over the weekend has propelled the Puget Sound men's soccer team to a No. 21 national ranking from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. This is the second week that the Loggers have been included in the NSCAA's top-25.
The Loggers jumped for 24th to 21st this week after running their winning streak to seven games. The streak includes four straight wins to open the NWC portion of their schedule.
During their win streak, the Loggers have allowed just one goal, which came in the conference opener against Pacific. The Loggers have also had five different players score during the streak with Andrew White tallying three goals in the last five matches.
Whitworth stayed put at No. 11 this week in the NSCAA poll, setting up a nationally-ranked battle when the Pirates and Loggers face off in Spokane, Wash. on Sunday. The Loggers will have to get through Whitman on Saturday and Whitworth will have to handle Pacific Lutheran first to set up a Sunday match of conference undefeated teams.
