RADNOR, Pa. – Eman Amao scored both of Wesley College's goals to give the Wolverines a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Cabrini College in the Championship Game of the Cavaliers' Labor Day Kick-Off Tournament on Saturday afternoon.  The Wolverines are now 2-0 on the year which is their best start since 2008.

Goalkeeper Ryan Sanders, defenders Robert Dina and Shane Casey, as well as forward Will Mileski were all named to the All-Tournament Team.

Cabrini took the early lead in the 15th minute as Bobby Kane took a pass from Mohammed Konneh to beat Sanders, however, Amao tied it up just over 18 minutes later off a feed from Mileski, his third assist of the tournament.  The score remained tied at one for the remainder of the first half as the Cavaliers outshot Wesley, 8-2 in the first 45 minutes.

The Wolverines were more aggressive with possession in the second half, outshooting Cabrini, 9-5 in the period.  Amao's game-winner came in the 68th minutes as Oluwatobi Sowande put him in position for the score.

Sanders made one save for the Navy & White to earn his second victory of the season while RJ Pino made seven stops for the Cavaliers.

Wesley returns to action on September 6-7 for the Franklin & Marshall/Lebanon Valley Tournament.  The Wolverines will take on Gwynedd Mercy in the opener at 1 pm.
