Sports | Men's Soccer


Self-made student section

The MSU men's soccer team has a loud and proud student section — the Red Cedar Rowdies. In three years, the group has grown from a few students to hundreds of avid fans.


Men's soccer will take on Oakland on Wednesday

As the No. 9 ranked men’s soccer team (9-2-2 overall, 3-1-1 Big Ten) prepares to take on in-state opponent the Oakland Grizzlies (6-5-1 overall, 5-0-1 Horizon) on Wednesday, the team will try to not get caught looking on to the next opponent. Sleeping on the Grizzles could cost the Spartans a late season win, and lead to a fall in the RPI.


In absence, Montague showed leadership ability for men's soccer

The men’s soccer team (4-1-1 overall, 1-0 conference) have reeled off two straight wins after losing to Valparaiso 1-0 on Sept. 11 and they’ve done it without some key players, asking others to step up in their place. The game is not all MSU lost on Sept. 11, as the Spartans lost team captain senior forward Adam Montague. His loss was immediately felt in the game as head coach Damon Rensing cited it as a factor in the loss.


Men's soccer will face top-ranked Bowling Green scoring offense on Wednesday

While the men’s soccer team (4-1-1 overall, 1-0-0 Big Ten) prepares to play against the Bowling Green State University Falcons (6-1-0 overall) on the road on Wednesday, Sept. 24, they will be faced with the daunting task of stopping the current leading scorer in the nation — Bowling Green’s sophomore forward Pat Flynn, who has 12 goals through seven games thus far. Flynn is already on the minds of MSU’s coaches as head coach Damon Rensing cited stopping Pat Flynn as a key to success on Wednesday.


Men's soccer comes away with clutch 1-0 victory over Maryland to open Big Ten season

In their first Big Ten game of the season, the men's soccer team beat the Maryland Terrapins 1-0. The win moves MSU to 4-1-1 on the season and gives them a 1-0 record in conference play. The Spartans, under the lights, at Ludwig Field in front of thousands of Maryland fans got out to an early lead with a goal by junior midfielder Jason Stacy, with an assist coming off a head pass by senior forward Tim Kreutz around the 9 minutes into the first half.
