FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The Panthers finished tied 2-to-2 in Sunshine State Conference men’s soccer action tonight against the Nova Southeastern Sharks in
double overtime action.
Florida Tech (5-8-3, 1-4-2) struck first at the 33rd minute when senior defender Brian Lundy (Satellite Beach, Fla.) found the back of the net off a short
cross from teammate Edward “Teddy” Oyarce (Miami, Fla.). Oyarce, a sophomore midfielder made a great move from the corner to give senior captain Lundy his
second goal on the season.

minute off an unlucky foul by the Panthers in the box. The Sharks’ Romain Onteniente would tie it up one all off the penalty kick.

Ockleford (St. Peter’s Port, Guernsey, U.K.) netted his third collegiate goal off a free kick outside the eighteen yard box. This placed Tech at the
advantage for their much needed conference win.
