Golden Eagles win conference match over FIU

-

The Southern Miss women’s soccer team (6-5, 1-2 C-USA) are back home after a two-game road trip. They hosted the Florida International Panthers (2-9, 0-4 C-USA). With a win over FIU, the Golden Eagles remained perfect at home so far this season. 

Saturday’s matchup between the two schools began with a 40-minute lightning delay.

Offense ruled the contest between the Golden Eagles and Panthers. Southern Miss had eight shots with five of them being on the goal.

The Golden Eagles set the tone with a goal from Ariel Diaz at 9:22 in the first half, giving her third for the year. She was assisted on the play by Hailey Pohevitz. 

With the Panthers looking to strike back, Kendell Mindnich registered a save with 21:00 remaining in the first half after snagging a free kick out of the air.  The Golden Eagles wouldn’t stop with one goal as JoAnnie Ramos scored a goal on a penalty kick at 36:17, thus giving the Golden Eagles a 2-0 lead at the half. 

The second half of play featured the same amount of offensive energy as the first, but the Golden Eagles upped their energy on the other side of the ball, finishing the game with a total of five saves. Hailey Pohevitz scored her fifth goal of the season at 51:52 putting the Golden Eagles up 3-0. The Panthers again tried to put points on the board, but Sarah Preston registered a save in the 67th minute of play.

The win brought the Golden Eagles’ record to 6-5. This breaks a two-game losing streak for the Golden Eagles that they lost on the road. They will host the Florida Atlantic Owls Sunday, Oct. 6 at 1p.m.
