MSU Roundup: Soccer Teams Fall, XC Still Strong

MSU Slips Nine Spots to #12 in Latest NSCAA Top 25 Poll

Midwestern State Men's Soccer slipped nine spots to No. 12 in the National Soccer Coaches' Association of America Top 25 released Tuesday afternoon.
 
The Mustangs had its 36-match regular season unbeaten streak snapped in a 1-0 loss Friday night at Incarnate Word, but bounced back with a 2-0 win over St. Edward's on Sunday to move to 4-1 on the season.
 
MSU is one of eight teams from the South Central and Central regions to receive mention in the poll, joining No. 3 Fort Lewis (Colo.), No. 8 Incarnate Word, No. 11 Colorado Mines, No. 16 Regis (Colo.), No. 17 Missouri S&T and No. 19 Texas A&M International while Eastern New Mexico is receiving votes.
 
The Mustangs have carried a national ranking for 60 of the last 61 reporting periods dating back to the 2006 season spending 39 of those weeks in the Top 10. The lone break in the stretch came when a membership dues fiasco cost the program a likely No. 1 ranking in the Sep. 28, 2010 poll.
 
Midwestern State completes a five-game road stretch Friday night at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at the UTPB Soccer Complex.

Midwestern spent seven weeks in the poll last season reaching as high as No. 18 for a three-week stretch. The Mustangs entered the poll for the first time in 2011 at No. 22 in last week's poll.
 
The Mustangs are one of four teams from the South Central Region to receive mention in the poll joining No. 8 Abilene Christian, No. 15 Central Missouri and No. 19 St. Edward's.
 
The Mustangs hit the road for a pair conference tilts this weekend taking on West Texas A&M Friday night in Canyon before traveling to Portales to face Eastern New Mexico on Sunday.

Lightning forced the cancellation of last weekend's Missouri Southern Stampede as many of the Mustangs have been idle since the season opening MSU Stampede back on Sep. 1.
 
MSU will run a dual meet with West Texas A&M Wednesday afternoon at the former Hawk Ridge Golf Course as an addition to its 2011 slate.
 
The Mustangs are one of three teams from the Lone Star Conference to receive mention in this week rankings which includes MSU, No. 2 Missouri Southern, No. 3 Truman, No. 4 Pittsburg State, No. 5 Northwest Missouri, No. 6 Harding, No. 7 Southwest Baptist, No. 8 East Central, No. 9 Abilene Christian and No. 10 Angelo State.
