Kansas City, Mo. - Lynn University's men's soccer team has shown plenty of resolve in a pair of last second victories but will need to show even more after jumping to No. 10 in the United Soccer Coaches Top-25 poll released on Tuesday.
The Fighting Knights, previously ranked 20th, are one of two Sunshine State Conference schools ranked, both of which are within the top-10. Palm Beach Atlantic moved to No. 6 and Florida Tech is receiving votes while reigning national champions Barry fell out of the top-25.
Two of Lynn's three victories this season have come in dramatic fashion. Lynn topped Davenport 3-2 in overtime and then took down Alabama Huntsville 1-0 on a goal with 12 seconds remaining in the match.
The Blue and White begin SSC play this weekend at Eckerd. Lynn is one of three teams in the SSC still unbeaten, along with PBA (4-0) and Florida Tech (3-0). The Tritons, though, are no slouches with a 4-1 overall mark, including a 3-0 win over UAH two days after Lynn's victory.
Kick-off for Saturday's match begins at 7 p.m. Fans can watch the game live at LynnFightingKnights.com.
