MOBILE, Ala. - Junior midfielder Vanessa Illanes (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) scored the game's lone goal in the third minute of overtime as JU defeated South Alabama, 1-0, Friday night in the Dolphin's regular season opener at the Port City Soccer Classic in Mobile, Ala.

The match was played under inclement weather conditions and was eventually delayed, for nearly 30 minutes due to lightening, just before the end of regulation.

Illanes scored the game-winning goal as she took a pass from junior midfielder Kristen Holstrom (Anaheim, Calif.) and shot it past the USA goalkeeper to seal the Dolphin's 1-0 victory.

The Dolphins return to action on Sunday, Sept. 2 at Noon, as they take on Louisiana-Lafayette in the adidas/Port City Classic in Mobile, Ala.
