The No. 13 women's soccer team (5-1, 5-1 MSC), who currently sit third in the conference standings, return to Walter S. Rueling Stadium for their second home match in a row this season. The Blue Raiders took care of business on Monday, defeating Thomas More 1-0 at home thanks to a Yudaya Nakayenze second-half goal.

Nakayenze, who scored on her only shot on goal of the game against Thomas More, currently leads the team in goals scored this season with four. Alicia Thoresen continues to lead the team in assists with two this season. As a team, Lindsey Wilson is outscoring their opponents 9-6 after six games.

The Freed-Hardeman women's soccer team (2-4, 1-4 MSC) who sit ninth in the conference standings, earned their fourth loss of the season on Tuesday after losing 6-0 to No. 8 Cumberlands (Ky.).

The Lions, a team that struggles on the offensive side of the game, is being outscored by their opponents 17-4 through six games this year. The Lions are led by their leading scorer Zoe Stom, who has two goals so far this season in six games.

Meanwhile on the men's side, the Lindsey Wilson men's soccer team (3-1-1, 3-0-1 MSC), who sit second in the conference standings, return to action after their last three matches were postponed.

Cyrus Harmon continues to lead the Blue Raiders in goals scored with four in five games this season. Rainer De Jesus continues to lead the team in assists with three in four games so far. The Brazilian currently sits first in the conference rankings averaging 0.75 assists per game. As a team, Lindsey Wilson is outscoring opponents 11-7, averaging 2.20 goals a game and two assists per game, the highest assist rate in the conference.

The Freed-Hardeman men's soccer team (2-4-0, 2-3-0 MSC), who currently sit eighth in the conference standings, played a tight defensive game against the Cumberlands (Ky.) last time out. With only three shots in the entire match, the Lions frustrated the Patriots until the 74th minute when the Kentucky side scored off their one and only shot in the game to seal the 1-0 victory.

Kenneth Ramirez leads the Lions with his five goals in six games this season. The Costa Rican midfielder is averaging 0.83 goals per game, the fourth-highest in the conference. Alexandros Leondakis sits tied with Jack O'Riordan at two assists, the most assists for a Lion right now. As a team, Freed-Hardeman is being outscored by opponents 14-8, conceding on average two goals a game.
