"We could have created more in the first half," SIUE Head Coach Cale Wassermann said. "Our opportunities didn't come until later in the second half."

The Braves outshot the Cougars 14-9 overall. Bradley finished with four shots on goal. SIUE goalkeeper Tor Erik Larsen made three saves.

"We didn't do enough to capitalize," Wassermann added. "We had a number of times that the ball rolled in front of goal and we just need an extra step or a longer run."

The Cougars return to Edwardsville for a Wednesday game against Evansville and a Sunday contest with Loyola.

"We need to be focused one game at a time and hope the results lead us into a fortunate position in the conference tournament," Wassermann said. "Right now, we're just focused on Evansville. It will be a tough contest."
