COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (October 8, 2014) - A pair of losses by top-ranked Darton (Ga.) State College opened the door for Eastern Florida State College, who made a move in this week's NJCAA Division I Women's Soccer Poll.

The Titans (7-0) moved up two spots to No. 4 and trail only Iowa Western Community College, Tyler (Texas) Junior College and Monroe (N.Y.) College in the top 20 rankings.

Eastern Florida State picked up wins over Region 8 rival Broward College (5-0) and then-No. 8 Navarro (Texas) College (2-1) during the most recent voting period. 

The Titans kept their perfect record intact and qualified for the postseason with a 2-1 win over another Region 8 foe, Polk State College, on Tuesday evening.

Eastern Florida State continues play on October 11 against Illinois Central College.
