Derek Zuniga and Brett Elder each recorded a goal and an assist as the Wright State men's soccer team posted a 2-1 Horizon League win at Green Bay Saturday night.

Zuniga opened the scoring late in the first half as he converted a pass from Elder on the right side for a goal in the lower left with just 58 seconds remaining in the period.  It was the third goal of the season for Zuniga and the second assist for Elder.

Elder then made it 2-0 at the 75:17 mark of the second half as he received a pass from Zuniga at the top of the box and beat the defender for his fourth goal fo the year.  Zuniga tallied his fourth assist.

Green Bay cut the deficit in half with a goal at the 83:22 mark, but the Raider defense held on from there to preserve the victory.

"We had a great performance tonight from the entire group," said Wright State head coach Bryan Davis.  "Everyone that played and traveled contributed to this win.  Green Bay is a very difficult place to play so to get a needed and deserved win was a great step for the guys to make."

Green Bay outshot the Raiders 12-8, including 10-3 in the second half, but just three of the shots for the Phoenix were on goal compared to five for WSU.

Wright State (3-6-1, 1-0-1 Horizon) is now off until traveling to Cleveland State for a 7:00 match on Tuesday, October 9.
