Men's Soccer pregame warmup (2015)

Men's Soccer draws with Olympia
12/3/2015 7:43:00 AM

Junior Cesar Gonzalez gave Men’s Soccer a 1-0 lead over Olympia in the tenth minute and for the next 69 minutes and 52 seconds, the Panther defense and goaltender Eli Smith fended off a furious attack from the Titans…but it didn’t last long enough for the victory. With just eight seconds left in an incredible match, Olympia was able to tie the score at 1-1. Since both teams play for the Friendship Cup, the annual trophy held by the winning team for the year, the match, while officially ending in a tie, goes to penalty kicks to decide who keeps the cup. Last year the Panthers prevailed in penalty kicks but last night the Titans outdueled DP, 4-2. Eli Smith had a sensational game in goal, stopping 12 shots as the Panthers now sit at 3-1-4 on the season. In the JV game DP came up short, 2-0.  Both teams will be back on the pitch at home against Ocoee Monday night in the Spoone.
