CHICAGO - After dropping a pair of games to tough NCAA Division II competition last week, the No. 18 ranked Saint Xavier University men's soccer team got back in the win column with a 1-0 victory over Robert Morris University (Ill.) in Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) action Wednesday night at Bruce R. Deaton Memorial Field in Chicago. Freshman keeper Kyle Held (Palatine, Ill./Palatine) had another brilliant performance in goal for the Cougars logging six saves and notching his fifth shutout of the season. Senior forward Ernad Dzananovic (Loves Park, Ill./Harlem) netted the game-winning goal for SXU in the 39th minute of play.

The Cougars missed a golden opportunity to go ahead early when a penalty kick attempt was blocked away by Eagles junior keeper Jose Cornejo in the 23rd minute. However, a beautiful cross by junior midfielder Samuel Sprauer (Chicago, Ill./Azusa Pacific University/Ohio State University/Glenbard North) set up the go-ahead goal by Dzananovic and proved to be all the offense SXU needed to claim the victory.

Saint Xavier (9-4-1 overall/5-0-1 CCAC) heads to Bourbonnais, Ill., on Saturday, October 23, for a big conference match-up against league-leading Olivet Nazarene University (Ill.). The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. start.
