WINTER PARK, Fla. (October 25, 2016) – In a game that could have decided both teams seasons, the Tars and the Eckerd Tritons battled to a 2-2 draw, providing little clearance in the muddled race for a spot in the Sunshine State Conference Tournament.  Rollins moves to 7-6-2 on the season and 3-4-2 in SSC play.  Eckerd’s record is now 7-4-3, and 3-3-2 in conference play.

Eckerd opened the scoring with a goal in the sixth minute, but after that Rollins amped up the pressure.  Ben Grant headed in the equalizer off a cross from Jordan Cole just after the 16 minute mark.

The two teams battled back a forth most of the second half, but no one could take the upper hand until Cyrus Siminou found the back of the net in the 78th minute, off a Stefan Avram assist, giving the Tars a 2-1 lead.  Eckerd clawed their way back, applying pressure after the Tars went down a man to a red card in the 85th minute, eventually equalizing in the 88th.  Eckerd used their advantage and controlled much of overtime, but the Tars had arguably the better chances. Ultimately, however, the conference rivals had to settle for a draw.  Drew Trautmann made seven saves in the contest.

Juan David Tejada and Moritz Hannemann scored for the Tritons.  Robert Labus picked up an assist in the match.  Alex Gott made two saves, playing the full 110 minutes for Eckerd.

·      Rollins and Eckerd remain tied in the SSC standings with 11 points a piece, the Tritons have one conference game remaining, against Barry.
·      Siminou’s goal was the first of his Rollins career.
·      There were eight cards issued in the contest, which got chippy late, Rollins received five cards, while Eckerd went in the book three times.
·      Rollins needs a lot of help to reach the SSC Tournament, needing Eckerd, Barry, Saint Leo and Florida Southern to all lose their final matches.
