[September 23, 2010]  The Lincoln College men's soccer team jumped into the national polls at No. 13 this week. This is the highest ranking in school history for the men's soccer team.

LC (6-1-2) lost to non-region opponent Jefferson College (4-4) by the score of 4-2 on Wednesday.

Coach Ben Massena summed up the game:

"We started the game very flat and let a dangerous team get a few chances and they scored off their first two shots of the game. We came out very slow today, and they are a very good team who have played five of the top 10 teams in the nation. I think we took them a bit lightly because of their record. However, they were playing the best teams in the nation so their record did not reflect the type of team they had.

"At halftime we changed a few things and came out like we usually play and scored two quick goals in the first eight minutes to bring the score back to 2-2. It was what we had asked them to do and the momentum was with us.

"We gave up an easy counter and they earned a corner in which we scored an own goal, bringing the score to 3-2.

"The guys continued to fight and had several great chances to capitalize, but we couldn't find the back of the net again. The fourth and last goal came from a counterattack when we were pressing for a goal.

"Hopefully, we learned a lot about who we are as a team today and that we bounce back from such a loss."
