ST. LOUIS - Saint Louis sophomore defender Raymond Lee (Kansas City, Mo.) has been named to College Soccer News' National Team of the Week. In addition, the Billikens have entered the national rankings, coming in at No. 22 by Soccer America and No. 25 by College Soccer News.
Lee scored twice in the Billikens' 3-1 victory against No. 7 (NSCAA) Creighton last Saturday in Omaha. His first goal came in the 39th minute on a corner kick started by Alex Sweetin. Lee's second goal, the eventual game winner, was scored in the 49th minute off an assist from Robbie Kristo.
It was the second win of the season against a ranked opponent for the Bills, who knocked off Louisville earlier this season when the Cardinals were ranked 18th. In addition to being ranked by College Soccer News, SLU is ranked No. 41 in TopDrawerSoccer.com's Tournament 48 rankings, which attempts to project the 48-team field for the NCAA Tournament. The NSCAA and Soccer Times coaches' polls will be released either later Monday or Tuesday.
SLU returns to action Saturday, Sept. 29, when Central Arkansas comes to town for Homecoming at 7:30 p.m. The traditional fireworks display will take place at halftime.
Prior to the match, America SCORES will participate in a nationwide attempt to break the Guiness World Record for number of people dribbling a soccer ball. For more information, visit http://www.americascores.org/soccerdribble.
