Only One Remains Unbeaten, How long can it last?

Bemidji State Soccer Twitter @BSUBeaverSoccer

Four weeks of soccer have finished and only one school remains unbeaten overall. Here’s how last week played out in the world of collegiate soccer.

Highlights

In the NSIC, the highlight comes to us from Minnesota State. The Mavericks, while no longer unbeaten, are on a long streak of clean sheets. Since the Mavericks lost to Grand Valley State on September 10th, they have won 5 straight games, shutting out all opponents. They did beat UMD, SCSU, and CSP in that order by that score. The Mavs had convincing wins beating Sioux Falls 3-0 on September 22nd and Southwest Minnesota State 5-0 on the 23rd!

Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference

With non-conference games finished the season, it is full bore into the fight for the NSIC regular season title. As of now Bemidji State and Minnesota State are tied for first at 5-0 in NSIC play with the Beavers having the edge overall at 7-0 compared to MSU’s 7-1 record. On the flip side two schools (Southwest Minnesota State and Minnesota-Crookston) sit winless on the season at 0-7 overall and 0-5 in the NSIC. Nationally, Minnesota State Mavericks sit at #13 in the most recent poll. Here are the Standings with matches played through 9/27/17.
