SOU men's soccer team gains another win by forfeit

The Southern Oregon University men's soccer team picked up a win by forfeit Tuesday, 12 days after its scheduled season-opener against Trinity Lutheran College (Wash.) was called off when Trinity Lutheran couldn't field enough eligible players.

Southern Oregon, which improves to 3-0, was scheduled to face Trinity Lutheran on Aug. 20 in Eugene, but the game was cancelled and the Raiders ended up tallying the program's first-ever victory six days later over Sierra Nevada College. Now, the forfeit win will go down as the first-year program's first-ever win.

The Raiders, who have won two games by a combined score of 13-2, next face William Jessup on Saturday and Pacific Union on Sunday.

Saturday's highly-anticipated matchup between top-ranked and defending national champion Southern Oregon and No. 4 Carroll has been voted the NAIA Football Game of the Week, according to the Play NAIA Facebook page. 

The game will be played Saturday at noon Pacific in Helena, Mont.

To determine the Game of the Week, Play NAIA selects three games from which to chose and the one that draws the most likes earns the designation.

The game will be a rematch of the 2014 national quarterfinals, which Southern Oregon won 45-42.
