RICHMOND, Ind. — A three-goal performance by Ameer Yusuf on Friday led the Earlham

Yusuf gave the Quakers an early advantage on Matlack Field with two goals at 4:47
and 17:59. Tamru Taye assisted on the first and Jacob Ebbs on the second.

Quaker to score three goals at home in a 3-2 win over Manchester in 2008.
The Quakers led 20-8 in shots, while Cincinnati Christian held a 3-2 edge in corner
kicks. Earlham goalkeeper Aaron Falsetto had four saves in the shutout.
