The Liberty men's soccer team continues to hold the No. 8 spot in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) South Atlantic Region poll, released yesterday.

After spending two weeks in the No. 10 spot, the Flames, 5-2-3, moved to the No. 8 position last week and once again this week are listed in the position. Virginia, who Liberty tied last night, holds the top spot in the poll this week.

The Flames concluded a three-game road swing last night by tying the Cavaliers, who are ranked No. 11 nationally, 1-1 in double overtime. Forward Darren Amoo, Liberty's leading goal scorer, connected for his eighth goal of the season to knot the contest in the 79th minute of play. Goalkeeper Andrew Madero, who entered the contest ranked second in the country with a 0.22 goals –against average, made a career-high eight saves in the match for the Flames.

Liberty returns home, Friday night, for a Big South Conference match. The Flames will welcome the Presbyterian Blue Hose to Osborne Stadium for the conference tilt. Match time is scheduled for 6 p.m.
