WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

 Scott Doney was up to his old tricks in Sunday afternoon's Heartland Conference Championship at Stang Park.
 
That suited the third-ranked Mustangs just fine as the senior from New Zealand headed in the lone goal in a 1-0 win over No. 14 St. Edward's to seal MSU's first conference tournament title since 2006.
 
"It was a tough game against these guys. It always is," Doney said. I was proud of the boys. They fought and really gave it their all today. I am really happy with the way we played."
 
The Mustangs took advantage of a foul just outside of the box in the 57th minute. Freshman Carlos Flores looped in a ball to the far post and Doney leaped just high enough to beat St. Edward's defender Owain Hoskins to the ball to head it just inside the post.
 
"I just managed to get a touch on the cross," Doney said. "I was happy it went in for my team."
 
St. Edward's controlled the slightest edge in shots (11-9), but it was MSU that produced the most dangerous chances working for seven corner kicks in the first half.
 
"We have a fairly large team, so we need to be clinical when we get our chances," Doney said.
 
Redshirt freshman Taylor Lampe made a pair of saves to notch his sixth clean sheet of the season in 10 starts.
 
Senior midfielder Pierre Bocquet earned tournament MVP honors and was joined on the all-tournament team by Lampe, Koby Sapon-Amoah and Patrick Fitzgerald.
 
With their seventh straight victory, the Mustangs extended the second longest unbeaten streak in program history to 20 matches while moving to 18-0-2.
 
The NCAA Division II Men's Soccer postseason field will be revealed via video stream on NCAA.com Monday night at 6:30.
