UNH head coach Marc Hubbard instructs his players during last Thursday’s game.

The University of New Hampshire men’s soccer team, which is undefeated through two games, is ranked No. 22 in the United Soccer Coaches Poll announced on Tuesday.

The Wildcats, who beat Providence College 2-1 Monday night, were last ranked on Nov. 13, 2018, when they were 22nd.

Wake Forest tops the poll, with Indiana, Maryland, Stanford and Duke rounding out the top five.

Senior Chris Arling of Windham has scored the game-winning goal in both UNH games thus far. Graduate student goalkeeper Alejandro Robles on Tuesday was named the Amercia East Defensive Player of the Week for his 1-0 shutout of Boston University in the Wildcats’ opener last Thursday.

Coach Marc Hubbard’s team plays next on Friday at Colgate. The game is a rematch of a 2018 NCAA first-round game won by the Raiders, 1-0.
