MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Oral Roberts University men’s soccer team continues to inch toward its first victory of the season as the Golden Eagles face the University of Memphis on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Both teams are coming off 1-0 contests on Friday night as the Golden Eagles (0-3) dropped a tight match at Central Arkansas and the Tigers (2-1) squeaked out a victory over Kansas City. Gerardo Salas led ORU against the Bears with three shots, while Jordan Klipsch put in the lone goal for the Tigers.
The Tigers have scored a single goal in each match, coming from three different players. Will Linder and Scott Dunwell have also scored for the Tigers.
