Men's Soccer Drops Decision to UCF
The Knights scored twice in the first half to take a 2-0 advantage at the half. Gianni Piccoletti placed a shot from the right side of the penalty box at the 15 minute mark. The second goal for the Knights came minutes later after a header rebounded off of the cross bar. Benjamin Hunt controlled the rebound and drove it in for the second goal.
The Eagles came out attacking in the second half and got an early goal from Hall off of a penalty kick in the 54th minute. Georgia Southern saw five of their six corner kicks come in the second half.
Witt Carlisle (Alpharetta, Ga.) just missed tying the game twice. His first attempt was a header in the 73rd minute and his second hit the crossbar in the 77th minute of play.
Joey Ralph (Evans, Ga.) tied a career high with nine saves. Ralph previously recorded nine saves in the SoCon Tournament against UNC Greensboro. Six of his saves came in the second half as he and the Eagles' defense kept the Knights off of the scoreboard.
