Soccer: LWC Men prepare for semifinal showdown

The Lindsey Wilson men's soccer team continues Mid-South Conference Tournament play in Pulaski, TN, to face off against UT Southern (TN) at 3pmCT on Wednesday, November 9, 2022. The Blue Raiders (8-6-3, 6-3-1) look to avenge a 1-0 loss to the Firehawks (13-3-1, 7-2-1) earlier in the year.

This game will be the 14th time these two have met in team history with LWC leading the series 9-2-1. Lindsey Wilson is 2-2-1 against Tennessee Southern in their last five matchups.

The Blue Raiders are coming off a 3-0 victory over Cumberland (Tenn.) in its last MSC tournament round after scoring three unanswered goals in a chippy battle. After a first half score to start things off by Monwabisi Mngqibisa, goals by Jean Wikes and Anouar Adam put the game away for LWC to advance to the MSC Semifinal Round.

Wikes now has two goals on the season while Adam scores his first of the year. Mngqibisa picked up his 10th, which ties MSC Freshman of the Year Sadam Maserkea for the team high in goals. Pablo Costa finished the contest with four saves and has a GA average of 1.33.

The Firehawks look to build off their 2-0 win over Shawnee State (Ohio) in their previous bout in the Quarterfinals. Carlos Galan leads UT Southern in goals with 11 on 32 shots. Goalkeeper Ajay Murray has 57 saves this season and a GA average of 1.05.
