Chicago, IL - The Scarlet Hawks men's soccer team took down Trinity Christian 1-0 before a large homecoming crowd on Saturday. The game went scoreless until a second half penalty put Illinois Tech up for good.

The game began very disjointed as both teams struggled to put together strong sequences of possession. The Scarlet Hawks had the better of the chances still failing to put away any of their first half chances. The combination play between Brandon Ramirez, Rex Meier, and Robert Rixer in the middle of the park was superb in creating chances but Illinois Tech still struggled to find that finishing touch.

Trinity's best chance came on a one on one breakaway between Trinity's Mauricio Salgado and Illinois Tech's Nathan McMahon. Trinity caught the Scarlet Hawks out of position on a counter and played Salgado in where McMahon did just enough to cause a mishit of Salgado's shot and preserve the shutout.

The second half was more of the same with the Scarlet Hawks struggling to find the back of the net until the 54th minute when Tech's Brandon Ramirez showed tremendous confidence and skill to beat a defender in the box, but was brought down for a penalty. Ramirez calmly stepped up and put the penalty kick into the side netting.

The final portion of the game saw the Scarlet Hawks absorbing waves of Trinity attacks where they stood strong and preserved the shutout. Illinois Tech goal keeper Euijin Yang recorded his first career shutout in a superb performance with 5 saves.

The Scarlet Hawks are now 3-2-2 overall. They will next take on Roosevelt University on Wednesday, October 2nd and attempt to extend their winning streak to 3 games.
