The Lee University men’s soccer team had its two-match win streak snapped with a 2-1 loss at West Florida Friday evening. The Flames dropped to 8-3 overall and are now 4-2 in Gulf South Conference action.

West Florida (5-2-2, 2-2-1 GSC) grabbed a 1-0 lead just 3:02 into the game with a goal by Kainan Dos Santos. Caue Novaes was credited with the assist. The Argonauts would carry that advantage into the halftime break.

The Flames outshot their hosts 7-4 in the opening 45 minutes with all seven shots put on goal.
Two of UWF’s shots were on frame. Lee continued its shot dominance in the second half with 10 more shots to the Argo’s two. Four of Lee’s shots were on goal, while West Florida made good on their lone shot on goal in the half.

West Florida added an insurance goal in the 88th minute. Keegan Ancelin collected a loose ball and placed it into the empty goal as Lee’s goalkeeper Sam Keener came out to challenge a 50-50 ball at the top of the box. Bernardo Torres was handed the assist.

Fabrizio Scimo scored his second goal of the season to cut the Lee deficit in half with 19 seconds left on the clock.

The Flames will look to end a two-match slide in the GSC on Sunday at Spring Hill College. The conference matchup is scheduled for 2 p.m. EDT in Mobile, Ala.
