WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (October 23, 2013) – No. 2 Rollins (14-0-0) scored four goals in the second half Wednesday afternoon to defeat No. 21 Palm Beach Atlantic (7-2-1) on the road, 5-0.

Tucker Hume scored twice while Rob Crowley, Alex Bisbee, and Rafa Faria each added a score apiece. Faria also had a pair of assists with Brett Durrance, Tosan Popo, and Grant Blackhurst each registering one.

Keneil Baker posted his fifth clean sheet of the season in goal, recording a pair of saves in 90 minutes. The senior now has 27 career shutouts, most in program history.

Austin Spagnola also played the full game in goal for the Sailfish, allowing the five scores and collected 11 saves.

The Tars outshot PBA 22-6 and took 10 corners compared to the Sailfish’s five.

Rollins jumped out to the early one goal advantage on Hume’s first of the day in the sixth minute, taking a pass in the box from Faria and slid it inside the far post.

Spagnola would go on to make nine of his 11 saves the rest of the first half to keep PBA within a score at half.

Hume then added his second 10 minutes out of the break, taking advantage of a failed clearance by Spagnola and deflected it into the net. The goal was the sophomore’s fifth in two games and is now tied with Faria for the team with 10.

Crowley then scored his second of the year to make it 3-0 before Bisbee and Faria blew the game wide open in the 82nd and 85th minutes respectively.

The Tars have now won 22 straight regular season games dating back to last season.

Rollins will be back in action on Saturday, Oct. 26 when the host Eckerd at 5 p.m. Fans can watch live in HD on the Tars Sports Network on
