Leading 1-0 most of the contest, the Wright State men's soccer team added two more goals down the stretch for a 3-0 win over IUPUI Tuesday night at Alumni Field.

Derek Zuniga gave WSU a 1-0 lead at the 18:54 mark of the first half as his shot from near the top of the box went by Jaguar goalkeeper Eduardo Cortes and into the left side of the net.  It was the second goal of the season for Zuniga, with the assists going to Will Gbelee, his first of 2012, and Albert Nilsson, his second.

It stayed that for nearly the next 50 minutes until Emeka Ononye made it 2-0 at the 68:46 mark with his second goal of the year on a shot from the right side of the box.

Angelo Capuano rounded out the scoring at the 87:56 mark with his first goal of the season at the 87:56 mark on a long shot from the right side.

"Tonight's game was our most complete performance so far," said head coach Bryan Davis.  "Though we have a lot of work to do, our guys are starting to master their roles as well as recognize great attacking moments.  This was shown in all three goals as we caught them napping with early shots and service.  The last two goals were on target and deflected which shows that when you put balls into dangerous areas, great things happen."

Goalkeeper Jacob Bye recorded the shutout for the Raiders as he posted two saves.

For the match, WSU outshot IUPUI 22-9 and led 6-4 in corner kicks.

Wright State (2-4) will host Niagara on Friday, September 14, at 8:00.  The match was originally set for 7:00, but was moved back an hour due to the Wright-Patterson Air Force 5K race taking place on campus that evening.
