Goals on goals on goals

The Loggers' attack is one of the best in the Northwest Conference. They have scored 14 goals in nine games, averaging 1.56 a match. Ezra Kraus and Vincent Von Luehrte lead the attack with three goals each, but six other Loggers have also contributed to the 14.

 

Best in the Northwest

Goalkeepers Wren Norwood (1.00) and Robert Jorgensen (0.67) have secured the top two spots for lowest goals-against average in the NWC for the second week in a row.

 

Regional repercussions

After suffering a loss at Pacific last weekend, Puget Sound dropped from No. 5 in the region to No. 10 in this week's United Soccer Coaches poll. Sealing a win against Pacific Lutheran this weekend could help the Loggers move back up in the rankings.
