Sept. 6, 2014 - Eastern Florida’s men’s soccer team improved to 2-1 on the season on Saturday defeating host Georgia Military 2-0 in Milledgeville.
Sophomore Ivan Magalhaes and freshman Colton Johnson scored for the Titans, both coming on assists from Justin Gavin in the 77th and 79th minutes respectively.
Sophomore Jorge Madera kept a clean sheet in goal allowing the Titans to record their second straight shutout.
“Jorge made some great saves,” said Eastern Florida head coach Oliver Twelvetrees. “He made three really, really good saves.”
