SMU Mens Soccer -
The SMU mens team took the title of the Mi Cocina Classic in grand fashion this weekend.  The boys took a convincing 5-1 win over #3 ranked Virginia on Friday night and capped it off with a solid 1-0 win over Georgetown on Sunday. 

On Friday SMU routed Viringia 5-1 on goals from Scott Corbin, Bruno Guarda, Leone Cruz, Ryan Mirsky and Richard Oliva.  "As a team, we're still figuring things out," said Mustang Coach Schellas Hyndman. "I thought the biggest difference from our first game until now is that, simply put, our players got better. That's one of our strengths as a coaching staff. We help kids improve. That said, this is quite an accomplishment for SMU soccer."

The Mustangs outshot the Georgetown Hoyas 16-7 and allowed just three shots on goal.  Gabe Arredondo scored the Mustangs lone goal in the 35th minute as he hit a 25-yard shot from right of center for his first tally of the season.
