Wilmington's first road test came at Mount St. Joseph University on Sept. 3, and the Fightin' Quakers passed with flying colors. The Green & White scored two goals in the first half - from Kevin Kamara and Elorm Dogbey - to take a 2-0 lead. Three more goals in the second half, led in large part by a 31-4 shots advantage
Wilmington opened OAC play determined to get revenge on Heidelberg University as the Student Princes took the opener last year. Two first-half goals fave the Quakers a lead they would not relinquish.
Wilmington's next opponent, Muskingum University, entered the game with just three victories over the Quakers since 1991. WC would not allow MU a fourth, earning a 5-0 win thanks to a 14-1 shots advantage.
