MOST COMMENTED

[SAINT LOUIS-LOUISVILLE] Saint Louis won its third straight game when Adnan Gabeljic scored on a superb individual effort in the 65th minute to propel the Billikens past Louisville. 1-0, at Robert R. Hermann Stadium.

Saint Louis finished with a 9-3 shot advantage in the first half and a 6-0 advantage in corner kicks but could not beat Cardinal keeper Joachim Ball.

The Billikens' best chance came when a shot by Robbie Kristo hit the post in the 19th minute.

They finally broke through when Gabeljic gained possession and carried the ball two-thirds the length of the pitch, out-racing two defenders in the process before firing from the right side just inside the far post for his second goal of the season, both of them game winners.

“There are not a lot of players in the country that can defend Adnan,” McGinty said. “When he is on fire and full of confidence, he is an extremely dangerous player.”

SLU keeper Nick Shackelford made four saves for his second shutout of the season.

Sophomore Dylan Mares had good chances in both halves but could not score for Louisville, which is now 1-2-0.

“It was a great effort,” SLU coach Mike McGinty said. “The guys fought their socks off and stuck to the game plan.”
