The Graceland men's soccer team took the field tonight against a tough Culver Stockton team looking for their first conference win. The Yellowjackets fell behind in the 22nd minute on a Wildcat goal by Brady Weinhold. The team responded in the 36th minute with an equalizing goal from senior defender Dwight Belfon-Cave (Point Fortin, Trinidad & Tobago). Going into the half, the two teams were deadlocked but a determined Yellowjacket team emerged from the locker room looking for the go-ahead goal. The second half proved to be a physical match with yellow cards being handed out to both teams. After several attempts, the Jackets were finally able to capitalize on a stunning ball from junior midfielder Aaron Cairns (Glasgow, Scotland) to freshman forward Andy Quintanilla (Brampton, Ontario) who slotted the ball away for the game-winning goal. The men were able to successfully defend the lead and came away with the 2-1 win.
