And a third is now within reach. But, first things first. Head coach Jeff Carr achieved his 50th victory in his five seasons at the helm and freshman midfielder Abbie Camargo recorded her 10th assist tying the school record set in 2012 by Courtney Hueston.

Carr’s record improved to 50-11-3 as sophomore midfielder and 2013 All-American Jamie Perriello scored the winning goal from 28 yards out. Camargo achieved her milestone as she assisted on EFSC’s first goal by freshman defender Arnela Cordic on a strike similar to Perriello’s.

Now the Titans turn their attention to Tuesday where the third milestone is in reach, a fourth consecutive berth in the NJCAA Division I postseason.

To achieve that the Titans will have to defeat Polk State College in a 6 p.m. match up on the Melbourne Campus. Admission is free.

Eastern Florida plays Polk and Broward College three times apiece to determine which team wins Region 8 and qualifies for the NJCAA District H final where a national tournament slot awaits.

EFSC beat Polk 3-1 earlier this season and blanked Broward 9-0 and 5-0. Carr expects a stiff challenge from Polk.

“Coach (Steve) Linamen has a good team that plays to win,” Carr said. “And with the postseason berth coming down to us and Polk I would expect Polk to come into our place with that foremost in their minds: evening the season series and making the Oct. 21 game at Polk a winner-take-all.

“We’ve got to be 100 percent focused on playing our game and doing what we do well. If we do the result will take care of itself.”

Eastern Florida is 6-0. Its backline of sophomore Samantha Solis and freshmen Mariah Lewis, Serena Delgado and Arnela Cordic has been stout allowing only three goals in six games, single tallies by Polk, College of Southern Maryland and Navarro. Conversely the Titans have scored 27. Perriello leads the way with five. Camargo and freshman Helen Rasmey have four each. Freshmen Kassidee Davis, Camargo’s twin sister Briana and Kayla Washabasugh have three.

Davis is second highest in assists with four.

Freshmen Asmara Holmes and Denise Rodriguez have split time in goal with Holmes conceding twice in 432 minutes over six games and Rodriguez conceding once during 125 minutes in three games.

Polk comes into Tuesday with a 3-2-2 record. The Eagles have scored 12 goals and allowed 10.
