From Staff Reports

 

CENTRAL, SC – A goal by GSW junior forward Divin Moke off a header in overtime gave the Georgia Southwestern State University men’s soccer team a 2-1 victory over Southern Wesleyan University on Wednesday, October 2, at the SWU campus.

Moke scored the decisive goal in the 98th minute to give the Hurricanes the thrilling overtime win.

Freshman forward Sebastian Da Silva delivered a soft, lofted free kick from 35 yards straight away that Moke ran under. Moke was able to get his head on the ball and direct it past the SWU goalkeeper for the overtime win.

A goal by junior forward Kellan O’Hara in the 78th minute of regulation gave the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead, but SWU got the equalizer less than a minute afterward by converting a penalty kick.

GSW outshot the Warriors 23-17 and took three more corner kicks than did SWU. It was a very physical match, as the Hurricanes were whistled for 12 fouls, while the Warriors were whistled for 11.

Up next for GSW is the Peach Belt Conference opener on Saturday, October 5. They will be hosting Clayton State University at Hurricane Field at 7:30 p.m.
