The Columbia College men's soccer team defeated William Woods 1-0 on Tuesday in Fulton.
The lone goal of the game came from Marko Paunovic off an assist from Andres Acosta in the 56th minute. Junior goalkeeper Matt McKenna earned the shutout with three saves.
The Cougars (11-0-3, 5-0-1 in the American Midwest Conference) moved to No. 7 in the latest NAIA Top 25 Poll, released today.
Rafael Ramos and McKenna claimed AMC Offensive and Defensive Men’s Soccer Player of the Week for their play last week.
Ramos, a forward, scored the game-winning goal in a narrow 1-0 victory against Hannibal-LaGrange on Wednesday. The junior from Sao Paulo, Brazil, also notched a tally Saturday in the Cougars' 2-1 win over Dordt.
McKenna got the victory in net in both of those games, making three saves in the shutout of Hannibal-LaGrange and adding two more against Dordt.
Columbia College is set to play Harris-Stowe State at 7 p.m. Friday at R. Marvin Owens Soccer Stadium.
