Mustangs move on with 2OT win
Midwestern State’s men soccer team had the bitter taste of defeat in their
mouths for five days.

On Thursday night, the No. 3 Mustangs used unranked Incarnate Word as
mouthwash, beating them 2-1 in a thrilling, double-overtime win in the first
round of the 2008 NCAA Division II men’s soccer championship.

Thursday that the Wildcats have added three junior college transfers for the
2010 season.

Montalvo to suit up vs. old team
Adan Montalvo would like nothing better than to beat his old team -- not
for revenge, but just because they are next on Texas A&M-Kingsville's

Montalvo, the leading returning scorer for the Javelinas, returns to the
