Mastodon tracks

  • IPFW soccer loses to Xavier
    Last season was a forgettable one for the IPFW men’s soccer team – it went 1-15-1 – but the Mastodons didn’t look like a one-win team Saturday against Xavier in the Shindigz National Soccer Festival.

IPFW routed by South Dakota State

Inside a nearly-full Gates Center, where the team ended a four-game losing streak Thursday with an emotional win over North Dakota State, IPFW got blasted by South Dakota State 74-43 Saturday.

It was the second time this season that IPFW (10-11, 4-8 Summit League) got hammered by SDSU (17-6, 9-2). Exactly a month ago, South Dakota State won in Brookings, S.D., 94-58, handing the Mastodons their worst conference loss since joining the Summit League.

Junior center Mario Hines led IPFW with 12 points, and junior guard Frank Gaines had 10, which included one point in the final 20 minutes.

IPFW had more turnovers (18) than baskets (16) in the loss.
