TULSA, Okla. (SMU) - An early second half goal proved to be the match-winner for SIU Edwardsville as it went on to defeat the SMU men's soccer team, 1-0, at the Tulsa Golden Hurricane Classic on Friday evening. The Cougars, who are receiving votes in the NSCAA rankings, improved to 3-0, while the Mustangs fell to 0-3.

Junior Christian Volesky's deciding goal came in the 47th minute after he beat Mustang senior goalkeeper Jaime Ibarra inside the six-yard box. The tally was his fourth of the season.

SMU outshot SIUE 8-6 in the contest, including a 6-1 advantage in the opening half. Senior Juan Castillo led the Mustangs with three shots, including one on goal. Sophomore Leobardo Vazquez had the only other SMU shot on frame.
