The University of Scranton men's soccer team remains ranked in this week's United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division III Men's Soccer Mid-Atlantic Region Poll, coming in 10th in this week's rankings.
Elsewhere, the Royals (5-3-0 overall) are also receiving votes in this week's D3Soccer.com Top 25 poll, as well.
In this week's United Soccer Coaches Regional Poll, Messiah moves up to number one, as John Hopkins is in second. The previous number one team in the poll, Lycoming, dropped to third after a defeat last weekend, while Haverford stayed in fourth place. Landmark Conference rival Drew is in fifth in this week's regional poll, followed by Eastern in sixth, Gettysburg in seventh, and Lebanon Valley in eighth. Just ahead of Scranton in this week's regional poll is Dickinson in ninth.
On the year, the Royals have faced a challenging schedule, in which they have already played two teams ranked in the regional poll (Lycoming and Haverford), and another, SUNY-Cortland, who is ranked eighth nationally in the United Soccer Coaches Top 25 poll (Scranton handed Cortland their lone loss of the year on Sept. 9). Later in the year, the Royals will play two more regionally ranked teams in Drew and Dickinson.
The University of Scranton men's soccer team returns to action on Wednesday night, hosting Wilkes in a non-conference match at Fitzpatrick Field. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m./
