After waiting over two hours to get started due to a weather delay, the Eastern Florida State College men's soccer team picked up the 3-1 victory over Jefferson College at Titan Soccer Complex on the Melbourne campus.
Sophomore Danilo Orsi Dadomo continued his strong start to the season, scoring all three goals for the No. 11 Titans and now has eight goals in three games.
"We didn't put them away early, we had chances for the second goal in the first half and didn't take it and this is what happens. This is a good team and never gave up," Eastern Florida State College men's soccer coach Oliver Twelvetrees said. "A good team like this will keep going after you when you don't take care of chances but I do believe this team has goal scorers all over the field and it didn't quite come off for some of them tonight but it will. Overall we got the result against a really good team."
Jefferson College tied the game in the second half but it was short lived as Orsi Dadomo scored less than a minute later to give the lead back to the Titans. His final goal of the day came with 40 seconds remaining in the game.
"We are playing well up front, the guys around me have really got a lot of talent and class about them. Coach spoke this week about sharing the ball more and it was a testament to them because I got all three of my goals because of them and if we keep working together, nobody will be able to stop us," Orsi Dadomo said. "That was probably the best defense we have come up against this season but I just think when our front gets together there aren't any back lines that can stop us in the country."
The Titans improved to 3-0 on the season and will now travel to New York City this week to play No. 2 Monroe College on Thursday and then Mercer County Community College on Friday. They will return to Titan Soccer Complex Sept. 20 when they host No. 5 Daytona State College in a Region 8 matchup that will be televised live on WEFS-TV and streamed live at www.efsctitans.com/webcast
