Box Score

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- The Palm Beach Atlantic University men’s soccer team welcomed in Johnson and Wales University from North Miami on Saturday for an afternoon of soccer at Magic Jack Field. With plenty of sunshine and plenty of offense, the Fish cruised to an 8-0 stomping of JWU. Freshman Evan Singlar netted a hat trick while senior Kyle Crouse compiled five assists in the win.

Utilizing all players that were healthy and available, head coach Jose Gomez and his staff were able to see some valuable field time for the full complement of players on the PBA roster.

The scoring would start early for the Fish as it was apparent the Wildcats would struggle with the team speed of the Sailfish all afternoon. Crouse received a long-pass that took  him to the near corner where he neatly slotted a cross into Singlar who put the ball home for a 1-0 lead just shy of the 3rd minute of play.

Crouse would connect on a similar play just three minutes later with a similar result as Singlar put in goal number two for the day.

A similar type offensive play would land the Sailfish their third goal in the 12th minute but this time Crouse would find fellow senior Josh Sharpe for the goal.

Just 40 seconds later the Fish would find the back of the net for a fourth time as freshman Tyler Sanders led Crouse into the corner who then delivered a ball in to sophomore Charlie Hubbard who put the ball home for his second goal of the season.

Things would quiet down from that point until sophomore Aaron Michael connected for one final goal in the half in the 41st minute as he drilled a shot from beyond the 18-yard box for an unassisted score and his second goal of the year to take the PBA lead to 5-0 entering halftime.

Hubbard and Singlar would each connect one more time in the second half while freshman Andres Tuesta would also come away with a breakaway goal late to secure the 8-0 win.

Goalkeepers Jonathan Strunk and Steven Bush split the time with each playing a half of action with neither facing a shot on goal.

PBA would outshoot the Wildcats by a final tally of 21-3 while leading in corner kick opportunities 4-2.

The Sailfish will be off from game action only until Monday, November 1st when they travel to Atlanta, Georgia for a showdown with North Greenville University. The neutral site contest will be played at the Silverbacks Soccer Stadium.
