MOBILE, Ala. (September 8, 2019) – The Johnson & Wales (Fla.) men's soccer team (0-2-0) fell to the No. 21-ranked Bethel (Tenn.) Wildcats (5-0-0), 4-0, on Sunday afternoon in the team's final game of the 2019 Mobile Classic hosted by the University of Mobile.
Three quick goals in the first five minutes by BU put JWU in a hole that was too big to overcome. The Wildcats were led by freshman Jose Silva, who recorded three shots (all on goal). Also notching multiple shots in the contest were junior Felipe Andrade (2) and sophomore Fernando Arzeno (2).
Sophomore Alex Marciulonis (0-2-0) suffered the loss, allowing four goals while registering six saves versus the Wildcats.
BU held a 25-13 edge in total shots and an 11-6 advantage in shots on goal.
It marked the first time JWU has been shut out a 2-0 loss at then-No. 8 Georgia Gwinnett last season (September 1, 2018).
JWU will next take on Eckerd College on September 17. Game time from St. Petersburg, Florida, is set for 7:00 p.m.
