The No. 19 ranked Xavier men's soccer team pushed their
unbeaten streak to eight after a tough 1-0 victory against the
Missouri State Bears. The team is also ranked first in the Mid-Atlantic Region this week and is currently tied for the longest winning streak in program history. It was the first home shutout of the season, and the difference was a late goal from junior midfielder Matt Walker. The goal came in the 80th minute when Walker struck the ball from the right corner of the box and curled it into the goal. The goal marked Walker's third of the season. "They were really organized in the back," Walker said. "I think that as the game went on, we settled in pretty well. We got the goal, and once that happened, the game opened up for us and got the result we needed." The match was tightly contested as the Musketeers registered only eight total shots. Aside from Walker's goal, Xavier only had two
shots on goal, both coming from leading scorer Luke Spencer. The Bears (4-2-3) tested senior goalkeeper Justin
Marshall with 12 shots, eight of them on target. Marshall was named Goalkeeper of the Week by TopDrawerSoccer.
com this week after leading the Musketeers to two shutout victories last week. The best chance came when the Bears' Jack Roberts tried to curl a shot towards the lower left corner, but Marshall kept it out with a diving save. His eight saves marked the goalkeeper's 17th shutout. Xavier is in the midst of
a five-game home stand and will look to remain unbeaten
as they face Thomas More at 7 p.m. on Sept. 27.
