College Update: MOBA Players Leading Schools to Crucial Wins
As we finally get into the heat of the college season, post-season play is starting to creep into the minds of coaches and players all across the country. The next two weeks will be crucial for seeding in conference tournaments, and winning as many matches as possible never hurts. Over the last few matches, it has been MOBA products who have been stealing the spotlight, securing some essential victories for their respective schools.

Dalton State Continues to Dominate
Sheikali, Boston U Revive Lost Season
Despite what the record showed for Boston University through five matches, the team has a lot of talent, which is centered around senior defender Adam Sheikali. No matter, the record wasn't great, showing 0-5-0 through five matches (with the exception of a 2-2 draw with the Haitian National Team in a September 3rd exhibition), and wins were needed sooner rather than later. With Sheikali on the roster, this Terriers team has been very successful over the last three seasons, and even though the 2017 season started rough, one could not help but know things would turn around. Turn around they did, and who better to start the turn around than Sheikali himself. Facing Harvard at home back on September 16th, it was Sheikali who scored the lone goal in the 1-0 victory off a free kick just after halftime. That win spurred a 4-1-1 stretch in their next six that included a 3-0-0 start to Patriot League play. Now sitting at a far more respectable 4-6-1, there is still a lot of work to be done, but the foundation has been laid, and Boston will be a team to keep an eye on over the next two weeks.
