TULSA, Okla.-Led by two first half goals by senior Jarrett Hamilton, the Golden Eagles cruise past Nebraska-Omaha 4-0.
The Golden Eagles (3-6-0) bounce back strong after the tough loss to IPFW on Friday. ORU controlled the game from start to finish; out-shooting UNO 20-8.
The first half belonged to Hamilton, who led the Golden Eagles with two goals in the 20th and 30th minute, both assisted by junior Aaron Douthit. The second half was more of the same, but this time it was freshman Tom Adams who scored twice to give the Golden Eagles a 4-0 cushion. Adams goals were unassisted and came in the 83rd and 88th minute. Adams and Hamilton are now tied for the team lead in goals with three each. Freshman Nick Petolick earned his first career shutout and collected two saves.
UNO (3-6-0), who will be joining the Summit League next season, managed just two shots on goal. Keeper Josh Christensen collected five saves and gave up four goals.
The Golden Eagles are back in action on October 7 when they face Eastern Illinois on the road at 7 p.m.
