The Night Hawks (3-2) shutout the Hurricanes (0-7) on Wednesday afternoon at the Wendy's Soccer Complex, 3-0.

TU got on the board just 6:28 into the game when Niall McCourt received a ball from Gavin Cameron and slid the ball past GSW keeper David Porley. Twenty minutes later TU extended their lead with a goal from junior forward Alex Fleming off an assist from freshman midfielder Manny Pena. With the Night Hawks maintaining solid possession of the ball for most of the remaining time in the half and in the early portions of the second, TU continued to create opportunities for a third goal but the Hurricanes would not bend. With 4:16 remaining the Mccourt and Cameron combination struck again when Cameron split the GSW backline and sent McCourt one on one with Porley, sliding it past his right side for the 3-0 lead. The Hurricanes managed only one shot on goal.
