STLCC’s men’s soccer team continued its undefeated record this weekend, bringing their winning streak up to 31 conference games dating back to the 2015 season.

As of Tuesday, Sept. 26, the team is ranked first in the nation. Head coach Tim Mosby said he expects the team to continue their streak, stay at the top and refuse to back down.

“We are wanting to get the highest seed in regionals,” said Mosby. “Play at home for regionals and obviously win regionals again.”

According to Mosby, the team this year is different than last year.4

“We can hold the ball a little bit better. Last year’s team was a little bit more efficient with attacking third,” said Mosby. “Overall we have better passing, can move the ball better, hold the ball longer. Defending wise we are not letting in goals.”

Despite their winning streak, Mosby said there are some minor setbacks including a lack of a true forward. Player Chris Eduardo is starting that up, according to Mosby.

Mosby also said that rivalry is a good way to keep the team ready to win.

STLCC’s biggest rivals are East Central College and Jefferson College. STLCC played against Jefferson College on Tuesday Sept. 26, beating them 4-0. Mosby said he believes that the team can make it to nationals, which will be played in Arizona this year.

“I think we can [make it] by October,” said Mosby. “There are some things we have to work on…we have only been together for a little over a month.”

The next men’s socer match is 4 p.m. Oct. 5 against MCC-Maple Woods at home with another match at 2 p.m. Oct. 8 at State Fair Community College.
