Men’s Soccer Blanks Evansville, 1-0

I was particularly pleased with our front three who were dynamic and showed great movement off the ball. We could have scored two or three goals in the first 20 minutes. The second half was a little more back and forth but we dealt with their direct play very well and showed progress from our previous game against them.” Next Game: “Great credit to young Cade, who exceptional throughout and made a terrific penalty kick save in the second half to help win the game for us in his hometown,” Smith said. “We would like to dedicate this win to his mother, Tamala McCullough for her courageous fight against cancer and who is one year in remission today.” Drake redshirt freshman Caden McCullough (Evansville, Ind.) played great in his first match in his hometown. McCullough recorded his second career shutout and finished with four saves, including a critical save on a penalty kick late in the game by one of the top scorers in the league, Ian McGrath.
