BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Phase 1 of the season could not have gone much better for the Eastern Florida State College men’s soccer team.

The Titans picked up their first win against a Division I program, defeated two Division II teams and head into the regular season on a nice roll.

“The preseason went really, really well,” Eastern Florida State College men’s soccer coach Oliver Twelvetrees said.

“The guys are motivated and working hard. All signs point towards a successful season.”

Phase 2 begins this weekend when the Titans open the regular season in Mississippi for a couple of games, beginning Friday night against San Jacinto College-South who was the NJCAA Region XIV runner-up and finished with a 12-6-1 record.

“The whole idea is to get a chance to spend some quality time with each other and try to bond as a team,” Twelvetrees said of the nine-hour trip.

“We will get to know each other and experience some adversity as well. San Jacinto will be a really tough team and that is one of the reasons we decided to go up there, to play a top 10-caliber team which San Jacinto should be by the end of the year. It will be a good test and bonding experience for the boys.”
