Men’s Soccer Creeps Up to Eighth in NSCAA Regional Poll

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – As its winning streak hits five matches, the Capital University men's soccer team continues to move up the National Soccer Coaches Association of America regional rankings. Capital now finds itself in the eight spot of the most recent Great Lakes Region poll.

Capital, now 5-1 entering Wednesday night's match at The College of Wooster, moved up two spots in the regional poll. Last week, the team was ranked 10th before wins over Denison University and Waynesburg University.

The top three spots in the most recent rankings remain unchanged with Kenyon College (5-0-0), Ohio Northern University (5-0-1) and Carnegie Mellon University (4-0-0) holding those positions. Ohio Wesleyan University (4-1-1) moved up from sixth to fourth, and entered the national Top-25 poll. Oberlin College (4-1-0) was previously unranked, but leapt into fifth.

Following its match against the Fighting Scots on Wednesday afternoon, Capital will remain on the road to play Thomas More College (Ky.) on Saturday, Sept. 24.

Senior Cheyn Roux (Davidson, N.C.) has led Capital offensively with five goals and one assist (11 points). Capital features eight different goal scorers and has outscored its opposition, 16-6, so far this season. Junior Justin Niswonger (Centerville, Ohio/Centerville) has solidified himself as the starting goaltender, sporting a 4-0-0 record, 0.27 goals-against average, and a .909 save percentage.
