Men’s Soccer Falls on the Road, 3-1
Spartanburg, S.C.- The Jacksonville men’s soccer team fell to Wofford, 3-1, on Saturday afternoon in its first away game of the season. With the loss, JU sits at 1-2-1 and Wofford improves to 2-3-1.
Backed by two goals from Nestor Jaramillo and a header from Connor Davis, the Terriers proved why they are one of the top scoring teams in their conference. The Terriers outshot JU, 5-4, in the first half but turned the pressure on in the second to walk away with the win.
Forward Matheus Saroli led the Dolphins with five shots but was unable to put any of them in the back of the net. Limited to only nine shots in the entire match, JU’s best scoring opportunities came late in the second half but shots by Nathan Dalton and Saroli were blocked and went wide with 73:59 on the clock.
The Dolphins were determined to not leave South Carolina without scoring and freshman midfielder Jack Burns knocked in his first career goal on a pass from Saroli in the 88th minute.
The Dolphins continue their road trip on Friday, Sept. 20 when they face FAU in Boca Raton, Fla.
