Lee, Shorter Battle To 0-0 Tie

Saturday, October 05, 2013
Overtime is dominating the Lee men's soccer play in the Gulf South Conference. The Flames have played six conference games and four have gone into extra periods. It was the same story on Friday evening when Lee and GSC leader Shorter University fought to a 0-0 double-overtime draw.

The Flames are 2-2-2 in league play and 3-3-2 overall. The Hawks are 5-1-1 in the GSC and 5-2-2 overall.

"The Gulf South continues to be a battle every night," said Lee coach Paul Furey. "Good scoring chances were limited by both defenses tonight.
We played pretty well in the back and Tom (Halsall) did well in goal.

"I think we had our best chance to win when Robbie (Cutchin) hit the crossbar in the first overtime. Our midfield played well and I thought we controlled the rythm of the game in the second periods. Chevy (Roberts), Quade (Marinell) and Robbie stepped up in the first OT.

"Their defense was hard to break down," added Furey. "it was a good night on the defensive end for both teams."

The Shorter stats show that Lee fired 14 shots but were able to place two on target. The Hawks' Nicolas Ferrigno had two saves in goal. Shortrer also took 14 shots and placed five on target, but keeper Halsall was there to collect five saves. The Flames were awarded six corner kicks to just two for the Hawks.

Lee will have five days to regroup before hosting the University of Alabama-Huntsville at the Lee Soccer Field next Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Not Everything Has Been Done To Save Hutcheson

I am not privy to all the management and financial conundrums concerning the feasibility of maintaining and growing Hutcheson, and as a private citizen I don’t believe ... (click for more)
