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 D3Soccer.com 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.
