Eastern Florida has now played Darton twice – both times when the Cavaliers were second-ranked – and has yet to lose. The first match of the season, Sept. 6 on the Cavaliers’ home field, ended 4-3 to Eastern Florida.

On Friday Eastern Florida got two goals from freshman and leading scorer Jordan Muir, the second a rocket from about 30 yards out, for leads of 1-0 and 2-1. But the Titans conceded two penalty kicks to Darton sophomore Allan Kuhne, both on apparent hand balls.
