The Mustangs boys soccer team is headed to the state tournament for the first time in the school's history.
Sheyenne downed Fargo Shanley 3-0 in an Eastern Dakota Conference contest on Thursday night. The shut out win secured the team a spot at state in Mandan.
Senior midfielder Hussein Mohamed added two goals to help lift the team to victory over the Deacons. Junior forward Kayden Aberle also tallied a score in the contest.
With Thursday's win, Sheyenne jumped to 8-1-5 overall and 7-1-5 in the EDC.
Thursday was the second time the Mustangs rolled past Shanley this season. Sheyenne recorded a 4-0 victory over the Deacons earlier this fall.
The Mustangs went 3-10-3 last year, and have almost tripled their number of wins with two games still to play this regular season.
As of Friday, Sept. 27, Sheyenne was second in EDC standings with 26 points. Fargo South leads the EDC with 27. The Mustangs faced the Bruins twice this season, recording a 3-0 win over the Bruins the first time and playing to a 1-1 draw in the second contest.
The Mustangs have had many bright spots this season. Sheyenne picked up its first victory in the young program's history over Fargo Davies this fall, and tied West Fargo High, the defending state champions, twice.
The boys state soccer tournament is Oct. 10-12 in Mandan.
