< ANDERSON, S.C. -- Woody Stilley's goal in the sixth minute gave Mount Olive an early lead and Chase Smith played 85 scoreless minutes in goal as the Trojans recorded their third consecutive shutout with a 3-0 victory over Anderson in CVAC men's soccer Saturday at Anderson, S.C. The win is the Trojans' fourth in a row overall and first in conference play this season.

Mount Olive (7-5-0 overall, 1-3-0 CVAC) got on the scoreboard at the 5:53 mark when Chris Varela's service in the box found Stilley, who scored his second goal in as many matches. The Trojans added their second goal in the 27th minute when Erik Small sent a hard line drive through the gloves of the Anderson goalkeeper and into the top of the net. Bradley Carroll and Ryan Adamski assisted on the goal, which gave Mount Olive a 2-0 lead at halftime.

Anderson (4-7-0, 1-4-0) stayed within two goals until a defensive misplay led to the final goal of the contest, as Adrian Daniels scored in the 65th minute. Daniels has scored a goal in each of the Trojans' last three matches.

Mount Olive finished with a 17-7 shot advantage over Anderson. During the Trojans' four-match winning streak, they've outscored their opponents 14-1 and have outshot their opponents 80-23.

Mount Olive returns to action Tuesday as the Trojans play host to Coker in a CVAC match-p. Match time is 4:30 p.m. at Trojan Field.
