Hurricanes Strike Early & Often In Season-Opening Win

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Sophomore Dylan Marshall scored less than two minutes into the Georgia Southwestern State University men's soccer 2017 season and senior Silvio Polly and freshman Divin Moke added first half scores to lead the Hurricanes past Milligan College, 3-1, Friday evening at Billy D. Hilyer Stadium on the campus in Faulkner University in a first-ever meeting between the schools.

Marshall beat three Milligan defenders to a deflected ball from Polly off a long punt from goalkeeper Joshua Swift and flicked it past the Buffaloes charging keeper to quickly put the Hurricanes ahead, 1-0.

Marshall returned the favor by assisting Polly on the second score of the match. Marshall directed a header towards Polly, who dribbled in towards goal on the right side and delivered a shot inside the near post in the 12th minute.

Moke made the most of his collegiate debut when he lined up a shot in the 34th minute from straight away and put the Hurricanes up, 3-0.

Milligan shook off a shutout in the 85th minute to score the final goal of the match.

Both sides took four corner kicks over the 90 minutes. Polly led all players with five shot attempts.

GSW returns to Hilyer Stadium on Sunday for a 4 p.m. (EDT) match against Texas A&M-Texarkana on the final day of the Faulkner Invitational.
