BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Three freshmen share the honors as Eastern Florida State College Student-Athletes of the Week for the week ending Sept. 14.
Recognition goes to men’s soccer forward Cleef Desir, golfer Michael DeMorat and women’s soccer midfielder Briana Camargo.
Desir, from Ocoee, Florida and Golden Gate High, scored a team-record six goals in the Titans 15-0 victory over Andrew College.
DeMorat, from Merritt Island, Florida, playing in his first intercollegiate match, finished tied for medalist honors at Wallace State Community College’s fall season-opening tournament in Cullman, Alabama and was defeated in a playoff. EFSC finished second as a team.
Camargo, from Ocala, Florida and Trinity Catholic High, scored three goals as Eastern Florida defeated Broward College 9-0 in its season-opener.
EFSC Women’s Soccer Visits Polk
WOMEN’S SOCCER –Eastern Florida’s women’s soccer team faces its second Florida College System Activities Association/NJCAA Region 8 match as it travels to Auburndale to play Polk State College.
First kick at the Lake Myrtle Sports Park is 6 p.m. EFSC plays Polk and Broward College three times each to determine which one team advances to the NJCAA District H title game where a national tournament trip is at stake. EFSC is seeking its third straight nationals berth.
The Titans took their first step in that direction on Friday, blanking Broward 9-0 in their season-opener on the Melbourne Campus. Freshman Briana Camargo led Eastern Florida scorers with three goals. Twin sister Abbie Camargo scored twice as did freshman Helen Ramsey. Sophomores Jamie Perriello and Samantha Solis rounded out the Titans scorers.
Goalkeepers Asmara Holmes and Denise Rodriguez combined for the shutout.
Polk is 0-1-2 heading into Tuesday, losing 2-1 to Darton State College and tying Warner University and Spring Hill College 1-1 and 2-2 respectively.
Offensively Eastern Florida head coach Jeff Carr will be looking for another balanced effort but also better ball management. Defensively he will once again count on his backline of Solis and freshmen Serena Delgado, Mariah Lewis and Arnela Cordic to keep Polk at bay.
In the midfield Perriello, the Camargos and fellow freshmen Kaila Henson and Haley Cook will be counted on to be solid along with Ramsey up top.
