San Diego State Moves Into National Rankings
San Diego State (6-0-0 MW, 11-2-1 overall), currently riding a seven-match win streak, moved up to No. 21 in the Soccer America Top 25 Poll this week. The Aztecs also received nine votes in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/Continental Tire Coaches Poll. San Diego State sits atop the MW standings with 18 points.
Wyoming, Utah State Keep Pace
Unbeaten at home this season (5-0), Wyoming sits just three points behind Conference-leader San Diego State in the MW standings, thanks to a 5-1 mark through the first six league matches. The Cowgirls (7-6-1 overall) defeated Colorado College 3-2 in overtime on Oct. 10, and then topped Air Force 5-2 on Oct. 12. Forward Kaitlin Lomsnes notched the golden goal against the Tigers, and followed that performance up with two more goals and an assist versus the Falcons.
Utah State is currently third in the MW standings with 13 points, just two shy of Wyoming and five behind San Diego State. The Aggies have won all four of their home Conference matches, inlcuding a pair last week. Utah State (4-1-1, 8-4-2) blanked San José State 1-0 on Oct. 10, and then slipped past Fresno State 2-1 in overtime on Oct. 12.
Bennett Makes History
Colorado College head coach Geoff Bennett became the school's all-time winningest coach on Oct. 12 as the Tigers topped the Rams of Colorado State 3-2 on a goal by Sarah Schweiss in the 90th minute. The win is Bennett's 120th of his career at Colorado College. He surpassed the previous mark of 119, held by Dang Pibulvech, who posted a career mark of 119-26-6 (.804) from 1983 through 1990.
Broncos Top Bulldogs In Final Seconds
After 89 minutes and 46 seconds of soccer, Boise State and Fresno State were deadlocked 1-1 on Oct. 10 and appeared headed for overtime. Then, with just 14 seconds remaining in regulation, Boise State's Kelli Drobney found the back of the net to propel the Broncos to a dramatic 2-1 victory.
