DES MOINES, Iowa - Drake men's soccer scored two unassisted second-half goals and won its own tournament with a 2-0 victory over Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
Drake, 2-0, peppered SIUE with 23 shots and allowed just three. Jack Twellman took two shots while the other was credited to Myles Hensler.
SIUE, 1-1, finished with three players on the all-tournament team at the Drake Classic. Goalkeeper Nick Frasca, who posted a shutout Saturday against Missouri State, Bob Ridder, and Ryan Wilhelm were named All-Tournament.
The Cougars and the Bulldogs were tied 0-0 despite a 10-0 advantage in shots after one half. Drake scored on a deflection off a save by Luke Gorczyca at 64:15. Thomas Ostrander added another Drake goal at 81:03.
SIUE is now idle until Friday when it travels to DeKalb to face off against the Huskies of Northern Illinois.
