Emory stuns top-ranked Chicago in shutout

Emory's upset over Chicago marked the first time the team has beaten a No. 1 ranked program.

The Emory University Men's Soccer program earned one of the biggest wins in program history Saturday afternoon, upsetting the No.-1 ranked University of Chicago Maroons, 3-0, in Chicago, IL.

The win marked the first-ever victory for an Emory team against an opponent ranked No.-1 in the country and the second win all-time against a team ranked inside the top-five nationally.

The Maroons entered the match a perfect 11-0-0 on the season and lost just once over their last 31 contests but the Eagles played like the better team on Saturday, controlling possession throughout the 90 minutes and limiting the Maroons to four shots on goal, tied for their lowest total of the season.

Junior Moustafa Khattab opened the scoring in the 15th minute as he blasted in a shot from just outside the 18, drilling the left post before the ball crossed the goal line. The goal was Khattab's fourth of the season.

Classmate Tyler Walsh doubled the Eagles lead in the 30th minute, scoring the first goal of his career. Junior Michael Stier provided a great through ball to a sliding Walsh in the box. Walsh redirected the pass, finishing his shot into the lower right corner.

Senior Christian Meyer scored in the early stages of the second half, giving Emory a commanding 3-0 edge in the 49th minute. Senior Jason McCartney had a close range shot saved but the rebound went straight to Meyer in the middle of box. Meyer spun around one defender before scoring on the empty net for his second goal in as many games.

Freshman Cole Gallagher collected his fourth clean sheet of the year with one of his strongest outings to date, making several big saves to keep the Maroons off the scoreboard. Gallagher made four saves in total, improving to 5-1 in his rookie campaign.
