Soul Posts First Shutout In Team History, First In League History Since 2011

Carlos Farias hit a three-point goal and assisted on three goals and goalkeeper Jeff Richey set a new league single-season game record for saves with 45 as the Chicago Soul earned their first shutout in Major Indoor Soccer League history and the league's first shutout since a Milwaukee Wave-Omaha Vipers game March 4, 2011 in a 11-0 rout of the Syracuse Silver Knights Friday at Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, IL.

The former single-game high for saves was set by Jamie Lieberman of the Norfolk SharX with 38 in a game against the Silver Knights January 15, 2012.

The Soul improved to 5-9 and in sixth place in the league standings, 6 1/2 games behind the league-leading Baltimore Blast (11-2), who they host next Friday.

Syracuse is in last place in the league standings at 5-10, seven games behind the Blast, and will travel to the defending league champion Wave Saturday.
