Kansas City, Kan. – The Lynn University men's soccer team moved into the top-10 of the United Soccer Coaches Top-25, jumping nine spots to No. 8, as announced on Tuesday. This marks the third time the Fighting Knights have cracked the Top-10 in the last four weeks after debuting at No. 12 in the preseason.
The Sunshine State Conference had three teams making moves within the United Soccer Coaches poll as undefeated Florida Tech (7-0-0, 3-0-0 SSC) earned a No. 5 ranking followed by Lynn's unbeaten 6-0-1 overall mark and 3-0-1 record in league play at No. 8. Palm Beach Atlantic (6-1-1, 1-1-1 SSC) collected the final ranking at No. 24, a one spot improvement from the previous week.
A 1-0 victory on the road against Florida Southern kept the Blue and White's undefeated record. In the match, Lukas Hombach netted the game-winner, his third goal and winner of the season, while goalkeeper Konstantin Fuhry turned away a career-best five shots. The duo garnered SSC Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week accolades for their efforts.
Lynn is back in action with two matches this week, starting with a Wednesday conference tilt against longtime rival Barry at 6 p.m., followed by a Saturday 3:30 pm matchup against Clayton State. Fans can watch the matches live at LynnFightingKnights.com.
