GREENVILLE, Ill. -- Eureka College sophomore Michael Hansen (Peoria, Ill./Limestone H.S.) became the 10th player in program history to score seven career goals with his tally in the 13th minute, but Greenville delivered enough offense to earn a 6-1 St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference victory over the Red Devils, Saturday night in Greenville, Ill.

Hansen moved into a four-way tie for seventh place on the Red Devils' career goals list and became the first EC men's soccer play to score seven career goals since Mark Meyer in 2013. Brock Musoiu (Carbondale, Ill./Carbondale H.S.) assisted on Hansen's goal.

Alex Yates (Washington, Ill./Peoria Christian H.S.) logged six saves for the visitors. GU outshot Eureka, 21-4.
