Shots (on goal)
DAYTONA BEACH, FL. - After a pair of scrimmages to start their 2017 campaign, the ASA Miami men's soccer team officially started their season on Sunday. ASA came out on top against Georgia Military College 3-2 in a neutral match that was played on the campus of Daytona State College.
After a scoreless first half, ASA jumped on the Bulldogs right away in the second half after a goal from Francisco Reyes (48'). The Silver Storm would see that lead evaporate after two back-to-back goals by GMC in the 63rd and 66th minute respectively. ASA capitalized on a penalty kick opportunity by Johan Godoy '76 that would tie the game at two. Then, a shot by Makenson Cadet was deflected by Osiris Pinto into the back of the net to give ASA the lead for good during the 82nd minute.
On Saturday, GMC lost 2-0 to Daytona State College, who is currently ranked 3rd in the 2017 NJCAA Men's Soccer rankings. GMC is coming off a 12-5 season and was eliminated during the 2016 NJCAA Southeast District Tournament.
NEXT UP | ASA's game in West Palm Beach vs. Keiser University has been postponed and a make-up date is TBD. The Silver Storm host Broward College on September 22nd for the first home match of the season.
