#14 Billikens Top Tigers In Trio Of Second Half Goals

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A trio of second-half goals propelled Saint Louis University Men’s Soccer to a 3-0 victory over the Memphis Tigers on Friday night at Hermann Stadium.

With the win, #14 ranked Saint Louis move to 2-0 on the season and continues its three-year winning streak on its home turf, Hermann Stadium.

SLU’s last home loss occurred on November 18, 2012 when the Billikens faced a double overtime upset to Fairleigh Dickinson in the second round of the NCAA playoffs.

On Friday night, the Tigers kept the Billikens scoreless going into the first half. That is until Filip Pavisic broke the game open in the 51st minute. The left-footed David Graydon whipped in a corner kick to the far post that the 6’3” defender headed home to put the hosts on top 1-0.

Graydon’s assist on the play is his 21st of his career which ties him for second among all active NCAA Division I players. SLU senior forward Faik Hajederovic is the leader in the category with 24 career assists.

Minutes later, Notre Dame transfer Vince Cicciarelli notched a pair of insurance goals to bring the Billikens lead to three. Cicciarelli scored his second and third goals of the season in the 61st and 65th minutes, respectively.

Next up, the Billikens will travel to face the Akron Zips on Friday, September 11. The Zips, who are currently not ranked by NSCAA coaches, defeated #12 Georgetown 1-0 on Friday, September 4.
