By Christopher Webster

The No. 12-ranked Lindsey Wilson men's soccer team looks to continue their unbeaten run of play in the Mid-South Conference when they travel to Bethel (TN) Saturday evening. Kickoff is set for 7pmCT.

The Blue Raiders (8-1-1, 7-0 MSC) enter tomorrow's game after defeating Freed-Hardeman (TN) 2-1.

Victor Cavalcante saved the Blue Raiders from what was looking like a necessary overtime period, scoring the winning goal in the 90th minute of play.

Nathaniel Onyina Opoku, who opened the scoring in the previous match, leads the Blue Raiders in goals scored with 10 in 10 games this season. Meanwhile, Koziolek leads the team in assists with six after 10 games, a career-high. As a team, Lindsey Wilson has outshot their opponents 200-73 this year outscoring them 30-13. The Blue Raiders are currently unbeaten in their last nine games and have not lost a road match this season.

As for the Wildcats (9-4-1, 4-3 MSC), they enter tomorrow's match after defeating No. 23-ranked Campbellsville 3-2 in overtime on October 12th. Nicolas Ruiz scored the winning goal for the Wildcats just four minutes into overtime to upset the Tigers.

Both forwards Sergio Baguena and Alphonso Gooden lead the team in goals scored with five in 13 games this season while senior forward Pascal Mohungsi leads the team in assists with seven in 13 games. As a team, the Wildcats have scored 23 goals in 14 games this season and have won six of their nine games at home.

This will be the ninth all-time meeting between these programs with the Blue Raiders losing out in the previous match, 2-1, earlier this year on March 16th. Lindsey Wilson holds a 7-1 all-time lead in the series.

Live video and live stats will be available for the match.
