The Fort Lewis Men’s soccer team are on a roll and don’t seem to be slowing down. With a record of 10-0 the men’s soccer team is one step closer to getting back to the national championship game. Fort Lewis overtook winless Colorado Christian in a nail biter 3-1, and with former number one Rollins losing to Florida Tech it looks as though Fort Lewis has come all the way from unranked to the number one spot in division soccer. The team has provided proficient chemistry and solid defense the whole year it seems that the Fort Lewis men’s soccer team is only looking to improve as they have less than a month until tournament play begin, and they look to reclaim the national championship trophy.
