Prisco Notches Third Shutout in Win Over Eckerd



Florida Tech scored their second consecutive home victory on Saturday, taking down the Eckerd Tritons 2-0 at Rick Stottler Field. This follows a 4-1 victory on Wednesday over the Lynn Fighting Knights. 

The Panthers (4-1-1, 1-0 SSC) got off to a slow start, as they were held scoreless in the first half. Panthers goalie Karlyn Prisco returned the favor, keeping the Tritons off the scoreboard through the first 45 minutes, recording three saves in that span. She added one more save in the second half. 

The Panthers finally dented the scoreboard 66:51 into the game, as Mary Watson found Keira McCarthy on a crossing pass and she headed by Eckerd goaltender Casey Winn and into the back of the net, giving Florida Tech a 1-0 lead. 

FIT was awarded a corner kick about a minute later and they made it count, as Taylor Eller scored her second goal of the season. Maria Munoz, who had a hat trick on Wednesday, recorded the assist on Eller’s tally. 

Each team recorded four shots on goal Saturday, with the Panthers holding an 11-9 edge in overall shots. They also held a 4-2 edge on corner kicks. 


The homestand continues for the Panthers on Wednesday, as they play host to Sunshine State Conference foe Nova Southeastern. The start time is set for 7:00 p.m. EDT.
