Men's soccer opens season with 2-0 win at Memphis

MEMPHIS (SMU) – The SMU men's soccer team opened the season with a 2-0 win over Memphis on Saturday afternoon at the Track and Soccer Complex in Memphis.

The Mustangs, who entered the season as the American Athletic Conference favorite after winning their third consecutive conference tournament championship in 2019, are ranked No. 5 in the College Soccer News Poll and No. 8 in the Top Drawer Rankings.

"Earning three points on the road is never easy in this league," said Head Coach Kevin Hudson, "We are happy to start the season off with a win. We produced a competitive performance, but we can play much better. There is a lot of work left, and we look forward to getting back to work next week."

Tobin Shanks opened the scoring for the Mustangs in the 45th minute with his first collegiate strike to put the Mustangs ahead, 1-0, and secure the season-opening victory. Noah Hilt was credited with the assist on the goal, the third of his career.

Thomas Haney added an insurance goal for SMU in the 73rd minute, giving him his third career tally, to put the Mustangs up 2-0 off a helper from Knut Ahlander. Ahlander was the nation's leading assistant man in 2019 with 13 total on the season.

Shane Lanson earned the clean sheet in goal for SMU with three saves.

The Mustangs are back in action Saturday, Feb. 13 at USF. The match is scheduled for 6 p.m. CT in Tampa.

Saw they're ranked #5. Didn't they lose a ton of players?

Blue bloods tend to be ranked pretty high at the start of the season no matter what.

If I recall they also brought in a highly rated class plus some good transfers. They reloaded nicely.
