WILMINGTON, Ohio - The Wilmington College men's soccer team ended the 2019 Kiwanis Classic with a 2-0 victory over Grove City College Saturday afternoon.

The win brings the Quakers to 3-1-0 and they finished 1-1-0 in the classic. Grove City is now 0-3-1 for the 2019 season after going 0-2-0 in the classic. 

The Fightin' Quakers first scored in the 33rd minute from Ian Molfenter who cleaned up a loose ball in the Grove City penalty area. The Quakers scored their second goal when Elorm Dogbey scored in the 70th minute, assisted on a through ball by Kevin Kamara

Wilmington out-shot Grove City 25-5, Molfenter led the Quakers in shots with seven. Wilmington also led in corner kicks 7-1. 

Felix Maurer earned a shutout with the Quaker defense not allowing a single shot on goal. Jesse Greyshock played in the net for the Wolverines and recorded one save in the loss. 

"Our guys played with great spirit today in a game that was a battle from the field whistle," Head Coach Alex Van der Sluijs said. "We responded well after a subpar performance on Friday. The key for us going forward is finding that consistency."

Adrian College finished the classic 2-0-0 after a victory over Wabash College who finished 1-1-0.

The Quakers will be back in action Wednesday against the Hustlin' Quakers of Earlham College. The match is slated for a 7 p.m. kickoff at Williams Stadium.
