Men's Soccer - Logan Rinderknecht, Junior, (Cedar Rapids, Iowa/Prairie), Forward - Rinderknecht scored two goals on Sunday, October 29th against rival UW-Whitewater in a battle for the Shaymus Guinn Cup. His first goal came in the 77th on a one-on-one breakaway with the Warhawks keeper that he put into the lower right 90. His second goal was the game winner in the 85th minute off of a header right in front of the net. The goals were Rinderknecht's seventh and eighth of the season. Rinderknecht's performance puts the Pioneers in great position to be selected as the Pool B representative for the NCAA Tournament.
