Oduro leads Morrisville State men in 2-0 bout with Wilson   


CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Sophomore striker Stephen Oduro (Kumasi, Ghana) recorded a goal and assisted another as visiting Morrisville State College men's soccer downed host Wilson College Saturday afternoon in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.

The win boosts the Mustangs to 6-8-1 on the year, 5-2-1 within NEAC play, while Wilson drops to 5-7-2 overall, 3-4-0 within conference action.

Oduro put the visitors ahead early in the contest, putting home the feed up the left side of the field before beating Wilson goalkeeper Dan Perry on the left for the 1-0 Mustang lead just 4:05 into the contest. Jose Figueroa (Boston, Mass.) was credited with the assist on the play.

That one goal advantage held until minutes into the second half, when Oduro connected with Daniel Agboba (Bronx, N.Y.) for his first score of the season. Agboba connected on the pass to the middle to get past Perry on the right for the 2-0 visitor lead.

Cody Gaines (Hoosick Falls, N.Y.) collected the win in net, turning away one to earn the shut out for the Mustangs.
