Newark, Del. – The Concordia men's soccer team looked for their third straight victory on Saturday afternoon as they took on Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) opponent Wilmington (Del.) University. After holding a one goal lead at the half, the Clippers stepped up their defense as the team came away with the win, 1-0.
Junior Ekene Okereke (Beliefield, Germany) would score the game's only goal in the 15th minute. Sophomore Jonathan Short (Tottenham, Canada) would send a long pass to Okereke in the box as he managed to net his team-leading fifth goal of the season.
