MONMOUTH, Ill. -- The men's soccer team continued their success with a 3-1 win over Monmouth College on Saturday.

Throughout first half, the Panthers had many scoring opportunities and in the 41st minute Greenville was awarded a penalty for a handball on the goal line. Senior Terrance Cosby (Jefferson City, Mo.) calmly stepped up to the challenge and finished a brilliant penalty kick to the top right corner of the net. The Panthers would enter halftime with a 2-0 lead.
As the Panthers entered the second half they continued with strong possession. In the 49th minute, the Panthers earned a corner kick. Dunlop stepped up to take it and bent the ball directly in off the back post for a brilliant goal extending the lead to 3-0. Monmouth would later score in the 75th minute off a rebound save from freshman Thomas Crown (Crestwood, Mo.).
Junior Nathan Haas (Belleville, Ill.) would be credited for the win with one save with Crown contributing to the success.
