After defeating Indian Hills at home two weeks ago, the Tigers held the top spot in the conference. The #12 Reivers entered the contest 6-1 and third in the conference, with their conference loss coming from Indian Hills Community College in an overtime battle. In a hard fought contest, the Reivers would come out on top 1-0 from a goal by Matt Woo Ling.
"It was a tought game and we were unfortunate to give up an early goal" stated Coach Chris Fuchsen. "Once Western scored, they sat back a bit more and defended well. We lacked the creativity to break down a disciplined defensive team."

Indian Hills Community College currently holds the top spot with Iowa Western moving into the number two spot, Marshalltown Community College and Iowa Central Community College round out the top four sports in the conference.
