Good time to come home

Although the Loggers picked up a point in the NWC standings last weekend, Puget Sound was held winless through its first two road conference games. The Loggers tied Whitworth, 1-1 (Sept. 22), before losing at Whitman, 2-0 (Sept. 23).

 

A ten of goals

Puget Sound is less than halfway through the season, but 10 Loggers have already scored goals this season. Luke Murdock leads the way with four, followed by Dane Schatz with three. Lucas Curry, Gabriel Faro-White, Lincoln Schnell, and Cale Spence all have two goals. Kian Evans, Sean Hamel, Angel Herrera-Flores, and Ben Williams each have a goal.

 

Keeping it classy

Puget Sound has the fewest yellow cards in the league with three, which is half as many as the next-closest team (Pacific, six). Willamette leads the NWC with 16 yellow cards.

 

Three Musketeers

Luke Murdock (10 points), Dane Schatz (nine points), and Cale Spence (six points) each rank in the conference's top 10 for total points. Puget Sound is one of only two teams (Willamette) with three players that rank in the top 10 for total points.

 

Scouting Pacific (1-5-2, 0-3-1 NWC)

Winless in the conference, the Boxers' lone this year is against Wisconsin Lutheran. Pacific has scored the fewest goals among NWC teams (six), and it has the second-highest GAA (1.89).

 

Scouting George Fox (1-6-1, 0-3-1 NWC)

Like the Boxers, the Bruins are still searching for their first league win of the season. After beating Multnomah in the season-opener, George Fox has gone winless in seven consecutive contests. The Bruins have the league' worst GAA (2.15) and they have scored eight goals.
