BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Eastern Florida freshman Clef Desir set a school single-game scoring record with six goals on Sunday and was rewarded with an ice bath from his teammates.
That was OK with the reserve striker and Haiti native who was understandably all smiles after the Titans 15-0 men’s soccer defeat of undermanned Andrew College on the Melbourne Campus.
Desir scored all his goals in the second half – six in a row in fact – to turn an 8-0 Titans lead into a 14-0 advantage.
The Titans led 5-0 at halftime in improving to 4-2 while Andrew of Cuthbert, Georgia, fell to 0-8.
“After the first one I told myself I finally broke the ice,” Desir said. “And it’s only going to get worse (for Andrew) in a matter of time. I unleashed the beast on them.
“Wait until we play Friday (hosting ASA College of Miami). I’m going to bring the same intensity and the same work ethic. To come off the bench after an injury and come back strong, it felt good. Every time you score it only gets better. You can never get too used to the feeling.”
Desir was joined in the multiple scoring by classmate Myles McRae who had three goals and sophomore Farias Juarez who had two. Sophomore Jordan Muir, freshman Kyle Edmonds, freshman Colton Johnson and sophomore Ivan Magalhaes scored single goals.
Desir’s effort broke the record of five set by sophomore Johnathan Quintero in last season’s 13-0 victory over the Webber International junior varsity.
Next up for EFSC is Friday’s 7 p.m. match with ASA and head coach Oliver Twelvetrees will be looking for the same intensity.
“That’s what we need to do,” said Twelvetrees. “We’ve created a lot of opportunities in every single game we’ve played and today was no different. We need to put the ball into the back of the net and we need to get that feeling.
“And a few of our strikers certainly got that feeling today and let’s roll with that now.”
Sophomore Jorge Madera and freshman Carlos Quintana shared the shutout in goal for EFSC.
Volleyball Remains at .500 After Saturday Split
VOLLEYBALL – Eastern Florida’s volleyball team split two matches at Pasco-Hernando State College on Saturday.
The Titans beat Catawba Valley (North Carolina) in the day’s first match, 17-25, 25-23, 25-21 and 25-20. They then lost to Pasco-Hernando in four sets 15-25, 14-25, 25-22 and 16-25.
Eastern Florida is 8-8 on the season.
Next up is a trip to Davie for a Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference match with Broward College on Tuesday. It kicks off a stretch of three matches in three days, the final two at home against non-conference foe St. Johns River State College at 6 p.m. Wednesday and conference foe Palm Beach State at 6 p.m. Thursday.
Admission to Eastern Florida home matches is free. The Titans then get a three-day break before traveling to Babson Park to play Webber International’s junior varsity on Sept. 22.
