JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville University men's soccer team scored two goals in the first five minutes and never trailed the entire game defeating Georgia Southern, 5-2, Wednesday afternoon at the Ashley Sports Complex. Sophomore forward Carlos Serrano (Jacksonville, Fla.) scored two goals to lead the Dolphins, who are now 3-0-1 in their last four games.
Junior captain Brett Surrency (Gainesville, Fla.) scored for the Dolphins in the third minute off a corner kick from Richard Blackburn (Jacksonville, Fla.) to give JU the early 1-0 lead. Two minutes later, Nick Comerford (Gainesville, Fla.) found Serrano and the Dolphins' had gained the quick 2-0 advantage. Chad Kilpatrick would cut the Dolphins' lead in half heading into halftime, scoring an unassisted goal off a rebound from a save by JU keeper Greg Williams (Hopewell, N.Y.) in the 30th minute.
JU would quickly put the game out of reach in the second half as Comerford fed freshman Jason Alicea (Orlando, Fla.) in the 49th minute, giving the Dolphins' a 3-1 lead. Blackburn came calling once again as his corner kick found Steve Command (Brighton, Mich.) two minutes later to make the score 4-1. The Eagles managed to cut the lead in half again as Chad Denson scored to make it 4-2, but Serrano scored his second goal of the game as Williams, who recorded five saves, was able to find him deep down field to make it 5-2.
The Dolphins (4-2-1) return to action when they host UCF Sunday, Sept. 29, in their Atlantic Sun opener at 4 p.m. at the Ashley Sports Complex.
