GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The Mustangs (9-6-0, 4-4-0 WHAC) entered Wednesday's (Oct. 23) WHAC contest shorthanded as three of the team's top scorers sat out against one of the conference's best teams, Aquinas College. Playing with a new look due to missing targets up top and a key piece in the back, the men's soccer team fell 4-0 on the road to Aquinas – a team that recently received votes in the NAIA Top-25 Coaches Poll.

The new look lineup went down at the halftime break, 2-0, and allowed a pair of late second half goals in the 4-0 conference setback. In all, the Mustangs led the corner kicks battle by a 7-4 margin, but were outshot 20-8 (12-2 on goal) by the host Saints.

Gonzalo Caceres (Detroit, Mich./Southwest) led the offense with three shots, one on goal, while Talal Hamodi (Dearborn Heights, Mich./Crestwood) had the Mustangs' only other shot on target for the afternoon. Khalid Suleiman (Tulkarm, Palestine/Madonna University) had two shots and Haider Alzayadi (Simawa, Iraq/Wayne State University) added one as the Mustangs attempted to generate offense from different attackers.

The loss drops the Mustangs to fifth in the WHAC with 12 points at 4-4. The Mustangs next opponent, NAIA No. 23 Davenport University, sits atop the WHAC unblemished at 9-0 in league play with 27 points.

The Mustangs will make a return trip to Grand Rapids Saturday (Oct. 26) when the team takes on Davenport at 7:00 p.m. The game can be viewed live here.
