WSURaiders.com: WSU Men's Soccer cruises to victory over Duquesne Tuesday night

Men's soccer

From WSURaiders.com

The 15th ranked Raiders men's soccer team was back in action Tuesday evening, when they welcomed the Duquesne Dukes to Alumni Field for a 7 p.m. matchup. Wright State asserted its dominance from the opening whistle and cruised to a 6-2 victory.
 
First Half
The nationally ranked Raiders simply looked the better side from the opening kick, and just 10 minutes into the match, reigning Horizon League Offensive Player of the Week Alec Philippe put the Raiders on top off of a beautiful assist from Austin Kinley. Not to be outdone, Deri Corfe netted his fourth of the season just 13 minutes later on a beautiful pass from fellow forward Philippe. Jackson Dietrich added his second tally of the season just before half, giving the Raiders a 3-0 lead headed into half.
 
Second Half
The Raiders wasted no time resuming the scoring in half number two, with Dominik Tajak getting on the board just five minutes after play resumed. Within the next three minutes of game time, both Corfe and Philippe would add their second tallies of the match, putting the Raiders in a commanding position at 6-0 in the 53rd minute. The Dukes would break the shutout in the 75th minute, and add another tally on some sloppy play by the Raider defense in the 85th minute.

Wright State remains unbeaten on the season (7-0-1, 2-0-0 Horizon) while the Dukes (2-5-1) fall to their second straight Horizon League opponent before they begin Atlantic 10 play on Saturday.
 
Up Next
The Raiders will head back to the road this weekend when they head to face Detroit Mercy on Saturday. The 2:00 pm kick-off will be the third Horizon League tilt of the season for the Raiders, as they will look to remain undefeated in conference play. The match will be carried live on ESPN+, and live stats are available through wsuraiders.com.
