Soccer Teams Drop in Rankings But Have Chance to Move Up

The men fell from fourth to sixth following a 1-0 loss at Elizabethtown, the team ranked first in the region and fifth in Division III. Moving ahead of the Mules were Drew and Gettysburg, two teams Muhlenberg will play in next two weeks. The Mules host Drew (which received votes in the national poll) on Wednesday and travel to Gettysburg on Saturday, Sept. 25.

For the second straight week, Muhlenberg is responsible for the lone loss by two top-20 teams, No. 13 Johns Hopkins and No. 16 Stevens Tech.
