The Columbia College men's soccer team opened up conference play with a victory over the Benedictine University at Springfield Bulldogs on Wednesday evening. Goalkeeper Brady Wulff  shut out the Bulldogs in the Cougars' 7-0 victory over their American Midwest Conference foes.

Senior midfielder Andres Acosta led the charge with three assists. The first set up defender Nikola Velickovic, who scored in the 14th minute.

Rafael Ramos, Marco Paunovic, Dale McCormack, Liam Cain, Majd Haidar and Inaki Suarez extended the Cougars' lead with a goal each. Cain, a sophomore midfielder, also had an assist.

With the win, the Cougars advanced to 2-0-1 on the season.
