WILMINGTON, Ohio – Capital University's men's soccer team was defeated 2-0 at Wilmington on Tuesday night, snapping the Crusaders two game Ohio Athletic Conference win streak.

The 12th minute served as the initial strike by Wilmington, as the Quakers got on the board first to take an early 1-0 advantage.

Following the goal, both teams would struggle to manufacture shot opportunities, combining for just four total shots in the opening frame.

Late into the second half of play, the Quakers extended their lead over Capital, scoring their second goal in the 79th minute.

With the Quakers doubling up their lead, the Crusaders were unable to come up with a score to cut into the deficit, eventually falling by a final score of 2-0.

In total, the Crusaders recorded one shot on goal out of eight total shots, as opposed to the Quakers tallying seven of 10 shots on goal.

With the loss, Capital (5-5-3, 2-2 OAC) continues its road trip, traveling to Mount Union on Oct. 19 for an afternoon first kick at 3:30 p.m.
