LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- After a slow start, Louisville City Football Club showed their goal scoring ability in a 3-0 win over Wilmington Hammerheads FC at Louisville Slugger Field Tuesday night.

Louisville's first home game with mild temperatures and sunshine also saw the club's strongest offensive performance that began with Magnus Rasmussen's second goal of the season in the 16th minute. A flurry of late first-half goals weren't the only offense as City's wingers continuously linked passes up the sidelines to put crosses into the box.

New signing Aodhan Quinn netted the team's second goal in the 40th minute in his first appearance with the team. Quinn comes to Louisville after playing with Orlando city in 2014 alongside Bryan Burke and Coach James O'Connor.

The score line soon jumped to 3-0 in the 42nd minute when Conor Shanosky put away a loose ball in the box off a Louisville City corner kick.

Louisville City goal keeper Scott Goodwin was forced to make a handful of saves late in the game as Wilmington went on the attack, managing six total shots (four on target).

Very physical play led to six bookings, five of which went to Wilmington, including one sending off after a second yellow was shown to Cody Arnoux in 88th minute.

James O'Connor made several changes late, bringing off Matt Fondy and giving Orlando City loanee Sidney Rivera his first minutes of the season. Rivera has been sidelined with an injury and was only announced as part of Louisville City's roster last week.

Louisville City improves to 3-1-3 on the season with the win in front of an announced attendance of 4,911, moving the team's average to 5,156.

The Hammerheads fall to 1-4-3 on the season, despite coming up with numerous chances and dominating the opening minutes of the game.

Louisville City moves up to fourth in the Eastern Conference with 12 points. City returns to Louisville Slugger Field Saturday at 7:30 p.m. to play Toronto FC II.

Scoring summary:

16' Magnus Rasmussen
40' Aodhan Quinn
42' Conor Shanosky
