By Kyle Jackson
The No. 18-ranked Lindsey Wilson men's soccer team (1-1-1, 0-0 MSC) will open Mid-South Conference play on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, when they host Shawnee State (OH) (3-1-1, 0-0 MSC) at 7pmCT in Walter S. Reuling Stadium, 151 Holloway Drive, Columbia, KY.
In the previous match, the Blue Raiders picked up their first draw of the season tying 2-2 with No. 23-ranked Northwestern Ohio in double overtime. Nathaniel Onyina Opoku scored his first goal as a Blue Raider to help his team pick up the draw seconds after going down 2-1 in the second half.
As for the Bears of Shawnee State, they also enter tomorrow's match after picking up their first draw of the season, tying Rio Grande (OH) 1-1 in double overtime on September 11th. Guillermo Conejo scored the game-tying goal for Shawnee State in the dying moments of the match to push the game to overtime where the Bears held on to a 1-1 scoreline.
So far this season both goal scoring and assists for the Blue Raiders have been a team effort with five different players all getting on the score sheet and recording an assist. Only Alexander Koziolek, Cyrus Harmon, and Opoku have both scored and assisted a goal this season. As a team, Lindsey Wilson has scored five goals so far this season averaging 1.67 goals per game.

As a team, Shawnee State has scored 17 goals in five games so far this season, averaging 3.40 goals per game.
