Fink's Late Goal Leads STL FC to Home Victory

ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Sam Fink scored off a corner kick late in the second half and Saint Louis FC registered its first home win of the season, knocking off Wilmington Hammerheads FC 1-0 at World Wide Technology Soccer Park on Saturday night.

With the win, Saint Louis FC improved to 3-2-1 (10 pts.) on the season and secured its second consecutive victory. Wilmington fell to 1-4-2 (5 pts.) with the loss.

The game was scoreless until the 82nd minute, when Fink netted his first goal of the season and the eventual game-winner. Mike Roach whipped in a corner kick from the right side, and Fink rose highest to head home from six yards.

In goal, Alec Kann made six saves to earn his first clean sheet with STL FC. Kann made several key saves to keep the hosts in the game, including a sprawling stop to deny Sunny Jane on a free kick early in the second half.

Before Fink's goal, Bryan Gaul had the best chance of the match for Saint Louis, seeing a shot from 12 yards saved by Wilmington goalkeeper Andre Rawls in the 9th minute.

Saint Louis FC will continue its four-game homestand on Thursday when it welcomes Toronto FC II to the Soccer Park.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 PM.
