Shots (on goal)
The UW-Platteville men's soccer team made a strong opening-night statement, shutting out Cornell 3-0 Thursday in Mount Vernon, Iowa.
The Pioneers held that two-goal lead for 50 minutes, until William Pretto added the final insurance goal with an unassisted score at 77:03.
Will Seehawer stopped both Rams' shots on goals to earn the victory in the nets.
Coach Enzo Fuschino's Pioneers make their home debut Saturday night, facing Coe College at 6 p.m.
