Munoz Leads FIT to Soccer Victory

Florida Tech Freshman Maria Munoz had a goal in each half against Lynn on Tuesday, leading the women’s soccer team to their 10th victory of the season. Munoz came into the match with just one goal this season and left the game with three.
This was an impressive offensive performance for the Panthers, who had 23 shots as a team, 14 of those coming in the first half. Nine of those shots were on goal, beating the Fighting Knights shot total (8) for the game. Panthers goalie Karlyn Prisco only had to make two saves.
Munoz scored the first goal 29:22 into the match, beating Fighting Knights goaltender Alexa Downie. Maddy Keenan was credited with the assist. That lead held through the end of the first half, but as dominating as the Panthers were for much of the game, Lynn (3-9-2) did make a game of it.
Caroline Duerr came up with her with 3:42 left in the match, beating Prisco from the top of the box and tying the game at one. As you would expect, the Panthers did not go down without a fight. They made an offensive charge and with just 1:55 left in the game, Aubri Williamson found Munoz in the six-yard box and she beat Downie.
Williamson worked hard all night, leading the team with seven shots, including one on goal. While she didn’t put one in the back of the net, at least she was rewarded with an assist. Keira McCarthy had five shots for the Panthers, one on goal.

Florida Tech (10-5) will wrap up the regular season on Friday in Daytona, against Embry-Riddle. The game gets underway at 6:00 p.m.
