Soccer Marauders break into men’s top 10


rp_primary_msoc-windsor-editHaving won four consecutive games in Ontario University Athletics play, the McMaster Marauder men’s soccer team vaulted into a tie for seventh in the CIS top ten on Tuesday (Sept. 17).

The Marauders were unranked last week and now share the No. 7 spot with St. Mary’s Huskies.

The undefeated Carleton Ravens (4-0-1) become the third team in as many weeks to occupy the No. 1 spot in the men’s national rankings, after the reigning CIS champ UBC Thunderbirds (3-1-0) in Week 1 and the York Lions (5-1-0) last Tuesday.

The Ravens move up one spot in the new poll thanks to a 4-0 shutout against Trent in their lone outing of the past week, combined to York dropping a 1-0 decision to No. 7 McMaster on Friday night. The now second-seeded Lions rebounded on Sunday with a 4-0 victory over UOIT.
