Oakmont High School graduate Cole Alexander scored two goals in the first half to lift Missouri State University to a 2-0 victory over Eastern Illinois in the Dayton Marriott Classic in Ohio.

Alexander, a junior, dribbled past the end line and scored into the opposite post to put the Bears (4-0-2) ahead in the 25th minute, according to a news release.

Alexander sent a header over the crossbar three minutes later, but he cashed in again in the 34th minute with another shot to the opposite post.

“A lot of our winning can be contributed to what we have been doing in practice, such as pressing and keeping our lines tight,” said Alexander, who leads Missouri State with three goals and 18 shots. “We’re playing really well as a team, and I think we can only get better from here on out.”

Alexander appeared in 17 matches last season, including three starts, and scored three goals.
