The nationally ranked MC Raptors men's soccer team has continued to put together a complete performance night after night as they have outscored their opponents 11-1 in October,and are red hot on a nine-game win streak.

The Raptors are fourth in the nation in goals scored per game averaging 4.87 goals over the 15 games played while only allowing 11 goals for the entire season.
