AUM Women's soccer holds steady at Number 13 in NAIA poll | Schools
The NAIA released its third Women's Soccer Coaches' Top 25 Poll earlier today, and the Auburn Montgomery women's soccer team remained at No. 13 after a 2-0 week.
AUM received 366 points in the poll. With four teams represented, the Southern States Athletic Conference remains tied with the Golden State Athletic Conference for most teams in the poll. All four SSAC teams are ranked in the top 13.
The Warhawks swept their matches last week in dominating fashion, winning by a combined 11-1. Ten different players registered points over the two games, including seven different goal scorers. AUM has outscored its opponents 25-6 so far in 2012 en route to a 5-0-1 record.
Margret Albertsdottir continued her streak of scoring in every game to start the season. The senior captain leads the team with seven goals and 16 points.
Maria Ros Arngrimsdottir added a pair of goals this weekend to move into second place on the team. She has four goals in her debut season with AUM, and her eight points ties her with Karina Suetsugu for second-most on AUM.
Concordia (Ore.) held on to the No. 1 spot despite a pair of ties to SSAC opponents over the weekend. The Cavaliers, who are now 6-0-2, played to 1-1 draws with No. 6 Mobile and No. 10 William Carey.
The Crusaders were the highest mover in the poll, moving up seven spots from last week's No. 17 ranking after defeating No. 4 Embry-Riddle and tying Concordia.
Lee leapfrogged Lindsey Wilson for the No. 2 position after defeating the Blue Raiders in overtime on Thursday. The Lady Flames also defeated No. 11 Olivet Nazarene. Oklahoma City rounds out the top 5.
AUM begins conference play this week with two road matches to conclude a five game stretch away from Montgomery. The Warhawks play Truett-McConnell at Noon on Friday before heading to Southern Wesleyan for a 4 p.m. matchup on Saturday.
