MADISON, Wis. – Simon Da-Silva scored in the 16th minute as the Concordia University Wisconsin Men's Soccer team settled for a 1-1 tie in a NACC match at Edgewood Wednesday evening. The Eagles answered with a second-half goal and neither team could find the game-winner in the overtime sessions, resulting in the NACC draw.

THE BASICS
- Final Score:
Concordia Wisconsin 1, Edgewood 1
- Location: Breese Stevens Field – Madison, Wisconsin

HOW IT HAPPENED
- Da-Silva (Lagos, Nigeria) put the Falcons on the board in the 16th minute as the freshman forward tallied his second goal of the season.
