MELBOURNE, Fla.- After a 2-2 draw the last time they met in early September the Palm Beach Atlantic and Florida Tech men’s soccer teams resumed battle on Saturday evening in a rematch at Rick Stottler Field. While the action was competitive throughout a victor could still not be decided as the two teams settled for a 0-0 score through double overtime.
Palm Beach Atlantic (6-5-3) goalkeeper Steeven Raymont led a determined PBA defensive effort as the junior made three saves in 110 minutes of action. Six field players for the ‘Fish played the entire match as Raymont was joined by Brandon Langenberg, Tom Gavin, Lucas Coutinho, Neil Slooves, Steven Fiema and Lucas Kuscevic.
The teams played as even of a match statistically as you can through regulation with each team registering six shots apiece in each half. The Panthers (9-4-2) outshot the Sailfish 6-1 in the combined 20 minutes of overtime. PBA managed a narrow 6-5 lead in corner kicks for the match.
Perhaps the best chance for a golden goal in the match came in the first overtime period when Raymont turned away a blistering strike from FIT’s Adin Kavara that saw the junior Frenchmen dive for a game-saving play.
Five players registered two shots each for the Sailfish to lead the efforts on offense.
PBA will be back in action on Tuesday, Oct. 28th when they travel to Winter Park, Fla. to take on Rollins College at 6 pm.
