ROCK HILL, S.C. - Elon scored goal with less than four minutes remaining in overtime to sink the Jacksonville University men's soccer team, 5-4, on Sunday afternoon in Rock Hill, S.C.

"We gave up too many goals early," said JU head coach Mike Johnson. "Our team did tremendous job of battling back, but it's had to dig yourself out of hole sometimes. We are looking forward to a solid week of practice before playing again next Sunday."

The Phoenix jumped to a 3-0 advantage in the first half on goals by Willis, Blake Wertz and Douglas Boateng.
