Pioneers' three matches during the week. He had the
match-winning goal in the 2-1 win over Grinnell College (Iowa) to
end the weekend. Ciszewski also scored twice in the 6-0 rout
of Cornell College (Iowa) and had an assist earlier in the week in

Last night, Ciszewski had three shots including two on goal in the Pioneers' 4-0 win over Lakeland College. Also announced on Tuesday was that the Pioneers were ranked No. 8 in the latest NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division III Men's North Regional Rankings.
