Eastern Florida Men's Soccer Team Blanks Broward 2-0
Oct. 12, 2013 -Eastern Florida State College's men's soccer team ran its unbeaten streak to eight games on Saturday night, blanking NJCAA Region 8 foe Broward College 2-0 on the Melbourne Campus.
The victory, the third over Broward this season, ran Eastern Florida's record to 8-1-1. The Titans have not lost since falling 3-1 to nationally ranked San Jacinto College on Aug 24.
The only other blemish in Eastern Florida's inaugural season record was a 2-2 tie with nationally second-ranked Darton College on Oct. 4 in Melbourne. Eastern Florida beat Darton 4-3 in Albany, GA, on Sept. 6 when the Cavaliers also were second-ranked.
The teams could meet for a third time in the NJCAA district playoffs that begin Oct. 30 in Georgia.
Eastern Florida got goals from defender Ivan Magalhaes on an assist from leading scorer Jordan Muir in the 35th minute and from Keenan King on a James Togbah assist in the 40th minute to dispatch Broward.
Jorge Madera and Justin Walker split the goalkeeping duties with Madera registering one save and Walker four.
"It was a solid, professional performance from the team tonight," said Eastern Florida head coach Oliver Twelvetrees. "We created more than 20 scoring opportunities with some great attacking play that deserved more goals.
"Kevyn McFarlane controlled the midfield and Juan Ocampo, James Togbah and Brandon Loafman were dangerous all night."
Broward fell to 2-3-1 on the season.
Eastern Florida has two regular-season games remaining, both at home. The Titans host Webber International's junior varsity at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Middle Georgia at 1 p.m. Sunday before embarking on the postseason.
Admission to Eastern Florida home games is free.
