The Lancers improved to 3-0 on the season thanks to four goals in the second half on Saturday from Miller Field.
An evenly played, back-and-forth first half resulted in several scoring opportunities for each team, but steady goalkeeping kept the game scoreless through 45 minutes.
Grace finally broke through the offside trap of the Archers (2-1) 10 minutes into the second half. Gift Sibukome found freshman Steven Fiema with a long through ball. Fiema alertly sidestepped the charging goalkeeper and dribbled his shot into the untended net to break the scoreless tie.
Fiema has scored a goal in each of his first three collegiate games for the Lancers.
In the 69th minute, Kyle Hamlin doubled Grace’s lead when he unleashed a blast from the left side of the penalty box that brought the packed Miller Field crowd to its feet.
Ten minutes later, Ben Bassous latched onto a through ball from Steven Fiema. He dribbled around the right side of the oncoming goalkeeper and laced his shot into net at the 77:09 mark.
In the final minute of action, Bryce Glock’s corner kick resulted in a late goal from the Lancers. The Archers’ goalkeeper bobbled Glock’s kick, which allowed Austin Altimus to clean up the loose ball before time expired.
Overall, Grace outshot Moody 15-6 and held the Archers to three shots in each half. The Lancers also owned a 6-0 advantage in corner kicks.
Senior goalkeeper Collin Cone earned his third shutout in as many games. He made three saves in his 90 minutes of work.
Hamlin, who came off the bench, led all players with three shots.
The Lancers will have their first road game of the season on Sept. 10 when they travel to Robert Morris-Lake County for a 4 p.m. kick off.
