Peaceful Easy Feeling in 3-0 Win Over Eagles

AMERICUS, Ga. -- Divin Moke scored twice and the Georgia Southwestern State University men's soccer team posted its first shutout of the season for a 3-0 win over Pensacola Christian College on Thursday evening at Hurricane Field. 

GSW evened its record at 3-3 at home this fall, 4-4 in non-conference matches and snapped a two-match losing streak to improve to 4-6 overall. Pensacola Christian dropped its second consecutive match to fall to 9-6.

Moke opened the scoring early when he met a cross from Sebastian Da Silva at the top of the six-yard box and punched it past the Eagles keeper to give the Hurricanes the lead in the sixth minute. Moke dribbled around a defender in the top left corner of the 18-yard box in the 30th minute to get enough space for his second score of the match and seventh goal of the season, a shot with his left foot.

GSW led at the break, 2-0.

The final goal of the evening came with 17:19 remaining, off a free kick by Cole Davison that was lofted to the top the six-yard box where Caleb Zolman flicked a header that came down just inside the cross bar for his first goal of the season. 

GSW outshot Pensacola Christian, 24-15. The Hurricanes controlled the advantage in corner kicks, 10-3, and committed three more fouls, 11-8.  

Bryan Zuniga led all players with six shots and Moke was right behind with five for the Hurricanes. GSW keeper Oneil Lewis made five saves to turn in his first clean sheet of the season.

Up Next: The Hurricanes resume Peach Belt Conference play this weekend with a trip to USC Aiken on Saturday for a 7 p.m. match.
