BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Eastern Florida State College women’s soccer team picked up another win Wednesday night at Orlando Health Stadium.

The sophomore from Paris, France took a pass from Sofia Posner and hit it over the goalkeeper’s reach and into the back of the net. It was Di Mascio’s sixth goal of the season and it was a big one for the Titans.
Polk State College had the first big opportunity of the game with 28:27 left in the first half, but goalkeeper Lauren Pastor leaped up to tap it up in the air and then caught it.
It remained scoreless at halftime and the Titans had a couple of really good looks in the second half as Lena Borges just missed on a shot and then Nancy Almanza’s went off the post with just under 22 minutes left.
Pastor picked up her fifth shutout of the season.
