Men's soccer shuts out ASA Miami on rainy night

Eastern Florida State College freshman Chaim Roserie has been setting up goals for teammates all season but with the clock winding down in a driving rain at Titan Soccer Complex, the men's soccer player showed he can also put the ball in the back of the net.

With two minutes and 24 seconds remaining in regulation, Roserie took a pass from Owen Tworkowski, turned and hit a rocket into the top of the net to give the Titans a 1-0 win over ASA Miami.

"What a special goal from a special player. You need your big players to step up when the other team is bunkering in and making it hard to break down. All credit to ASA, they played well tonight," Eastern Florida State College men's soccer coach Oliver Twelvetrees said. "I thought it was a good overall performance, it's always difficult in this conference and I thought it was one of our more complete games from the first minute until the final minute."

It was Roserie's third goal of the season to go with his team-leading eight assists. On the other side of the field, the Titans defense posted its first clean sheet of the season as the back four kept ASA Miami at bay and Mike Horacius played well in his second start in goal.

Eastern Florida State College improves to 5-2 overall and 2-1 in the Region 8 Conference and will be home for a couple of non-conference games next week beginning with Wednesday night's game against Chivas USA at 7 p.m.
