Tough loss #2
For the second time in as many days, the Georgia Southwestern men's soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision at Hurricane Field. Sunday afternoon a converted penalty kick by Eckerd College in the 16th minute was the difference.
At the 15:43 mark, Eckerd's Luke Sheekey made the most of a dubious GSW foul in the box by converting a penalty kick for what turned out to be the lone score of the match. The foul was one of only four committed by the Hurricanes on the afternoon.
Both sides played a man down the final 26 minutes of the match after a pair of red cards were handed out over a two minute span in the second half.
Eckerd outshot GSW 15-8 and held a 6-1 advantage in corner kicks.
GSW goalkeeper David Porley stopped six. EC goalie Domenic Spedaliere recorded the shutout with three saves.
Jesse Davis and Taylor Jennings led the 'Canes offense with two shots apiece.
Game three of the Hurricanes four-game homestand is Wednesday against Brewton-Parker College at 4 p.m.
