CUA catches attention of national and regional voters

CUA catches attention of national and regional voters

WASHINGTON – Sitting in first place in the Landmark Conference and in the midst of a four-match winning streak, the CUA men’s soccer team is beginning to receive attention regionally and nationally.  The Cardinals are ranked 10th in this week’s NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Region rankings and they are receiving votes in the national poll.

CUA has been hot of late, losing just once in its last seven matches.  The Cardinals sit at 8-3 overall and 3-0 within the Landmark Conference, making them the only team in the Landmark that has not dropped a conference match.

Tuesday’s rankings come on the heels of CUA freshman Ben Fleri receiving Offensive Player of the Week accolades from the Landmark Conference on Monday.  Fleri scored game-winning goals in both of the Cardinals wins last week, including one in overtime to lift CUA past Washington College on October 4.

CUA will put its four-match win streak on the line on Wednesday evening when the Cardinals play host to McDaniel inside Cardinal Stadium.  Start time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
