2-0 an Unlucky Combination for Hurricanes

Thomas University freshman Jonah Mukada broke up a scoreless match with a 66th minute goal and TU added another score 12 minutes later as the visiting Night Hawks defeated Georgia Southwestern 2-0, Tuesday afternoon at Hurricane Field.

TU (6-4-1) went ahead 1-0 when Luciano Lorca fed a sliding Mukada who was able to punch a shot into the lower right corner of the goal for his team-leading ninth goal at the 65:52 mark. 
 
The margin increased to 2-0 in the 78th minute. TU senior Abdul Muma scored off a lead pass from Lorca on a one-on-one opportunity against GSW sophomore goalkeeper John Scharnikow.
 
Thomas outshot Georgia Southwestern 18-10.  The Hurricanes held a 5-3 corner kick advantage.  Scharnikow finished with seven saves, while Jan Feldman registered five stops for TU.

The Hurricanes (1-11) host USC Aiken on Saturday for a 3:30 p.m. Peach Belt Conference match.
