NEW YORK - The Columbia men's soccer team will look to get back to .500 on the season Saturday, when it takes on Delaware. Kick-off at the Columbia Soccer Stadium is slated for 7 p.m.

The Lions used a pair of second half goals Wednesday evening to defeat visiting St. Peter's, 2-1. Sophomore Kofi Agyapong scored the Lions first goal of the contest and senior Brendan O'Hearn netted the game-winner.

In total, four Lions have scored goals this season, with Quentin Grigsby and Nick Scott also having one goal on the year.  Kyle Jackson and Michael Attal have split time in goal for Columbia this season. Jackson made his first collegiate start Wednesday against St. Peter's, making six saves and accruing his second win of the season.

Delaware enters Saturday's contest with an overall mark of 1-4-1. The Blue Hens picked up their first win of the season Sept. 7 against Duquesne, 2-1. Since that day, Delaware has lost on the road to Pittsburgh, 1-0, and tied Navy at home, 1-1.

Kyle Bruno leads the Blue Hens with three points on one goal and an assist. Vincent Mediate, Evan Reed and Joe Dipre have each also scored once this season for Delaware. Jay Lupus has played all six games through their entirety in net, racking up 27 saves and a 0.692 save percentage.
