The Mustangs hit the road for a five-game stretch starting at Colorado State-Pueblo and Colorado-Colorado Springs next weekend before opening Lone Star Conference play against Incarnate Word in San Antonio on Sept. 16.
No. 5 Clayton State 5, No. 17 Anderson 1
MORROW, Ga. -- Clayton State head coach Pete Petersen knew he was getting some additional scoring punch when he recruited Kenny Mena to the Laker program. However, he wasn’t expecting production this quickly.
Mena made an impressive Laker debut on Friday night as he recorded a hat-trick as Clayton State pulled off a 5-1 rout against visiting Anderson in a top-25 showdown in the Laker Shootout at Laker Field. Clayton State entered the contest ranked fifth in the nation in the Division II preseason Top 25, while Anderson is ranked 17th.
