WINTER PARK, Fla. (October 30, 2016) – Rollins picked up a win in their season finale, defeating the Embry-Riddle Eagles 3-0 on Sunday afternoon.  Prior to the game the Tars honored five seniors, David Kuckkahn, Mark Biddinger, Tosan Popo, Jordan Cole, and Alexis Martinez.  The win means Rollins concludes their season with a record of 8-6-2, going 3-4-2 in the Sunshine State Conference.  SSC Provisional member, Embry-Riddle, falls to 2-9-3 on the year.

The Tars graduating class factored heavily in the first two Rollins’ tallies.  Cole picked up an assist on the Tars first goal, lofting a ball to the back post where Cyrus Siminou was there to tap it in.  Popo registered his eighth goal of the season to make the score 2-0.  The Essex, England native headed a Matt Volk cross into the bar, but gathered his own rebound and slotted the ball past the keeper.  Stefan Avram made the score 3-0 in the second half, when a James Crowley pass set him free on the keeper, and he finished in the side netting.  Drew Trautmann played the full 90 minutes, making five saves to earn the clean sheet victory.

The Eagles managed 11 shots in the contest, putting five on target.  James Pass led the way with three attempts.  Richard Dearle made three saves for Embry-Riddle.

·      Popo’s goal gave him 84 points in his Rollins career, tying him for 10th all-time.  He is tied with coach Keith Buckley.
·      Trautmann saved a penalty kick at the 7-minute mark to help preserve the Tars’ fifth shutout of the season.
·      Crowley’s 68th minute assist was juniors first helper of the season.

This match concludes the Tars 2016 campaign
