FULTON, MO -- Although Saturday's matchup between the William Woods University men's soccer team and Park University was played with every bit as much intensity and fire as the team's previous meeting, the Owls had little trouble controlling Park in the rematch. Goals from Marcelo Carreiro, Sebastian Burich and Joao Paulo Parra gave the Owls a 3-0 win and a pass to the AMC Tournament Semifinals.

The teams played fairly evenly throughout much of the first half, but WWU would strike late in the opening stanza.

Ryan Mann slotted a through ball to spring Carreiro behind the Park defense, with the junior letting loose a low, solid shot. An onrushing Reece Harris tried to adjust and get down to make the save, but the ball squirted under his arm and danced into the net.

The Owls continued to control the match as the second half started, and added a second goal in the 54th minute. WWU took advantage of a quick counterattack, with Parra finding Burich with a long ball. Burich brought the ball down and stood up his defender before taking a quick dribble with his left and tucking the ball inside the left upper 90.

Park continued to press for a goal to get back in the match, but Dillon Klein (Boise, Idaho) and the Owls defense were never really tested, as they held the Pirates to just three total shots in the match, none on frame. WWU would put the final nail in the coffin in the 84th minute, however, tacking on a third goal.

Burich had the ball at his feet in the middle of the field and passed it off to Parra. The Pirate defense gave him a lot of space, and despite urging from the sideline to attack on the dribble, Parra noticed that the Park goalkeeper was slightly out of position and uncorked a curling shot to the upper corner of the net.

The goal sparked a huge celebration on the bench as the Owls were all but certain of advancing to the semifinals at that point.

The win moves WWU to 11-7-1 on the year, and ends Park's season at 6-10-1. William Woods moves on to the semifinals for the second straight season, and will play No. 1 seed Hannibal-LaGrange on Tuesday, November 6. Kickoff for the match is set for 1 p.m.
