Salisbury, Md. – Sophomore midfielder Brad Moore's (Crofton, Md./South River) goal in the 21st proved to be the difference as the St. Mary's College of Maryland men's soccer team posted a 1-0 road win over Salisbury University Wednesday afternoon.

In the process, senior goalkeeper Zack Haussler (Woodbine, Md./Glenelg) became the school's all-time leader in shutouts with 17 career clean sheets. Haussler breaks the tie with Rick Besore '08, who recorded 16 shutouts between 2004 and 2007.

Haussler is already the program's all-time leader in wins as he picked up that record with his third win of the season – a 3-0 win over Swarthmore College on September 17 – 29th overall. He surpassed Micah Spiegel '02 who registered a 28-23-0 record between 1998 and 2001. Haussler currently holds a 32-18-4 career record.
