The Georgia Southern University men’s soccer team will take on the University of South Florida Bulls in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

The Eagles are currently 4-3 in their season. Up until their Saturday night match against the Jacksonville University Dolphins, the Eagles had been on a three-game winning streak. Unfortunately, they were defeated by the Dolphins in a 3-0 shutout game. The match was tied until twelve minutes into the second half when the Dolphins scored their first goal of the game. They scored again in the 63rd minute and then again in the 83rd minute.

South Florida’s Bulls are also currently 4-3 in their season so far; their most recent win was against the Brown University Bears, and most recent loss was to the University of Connecticut.

The Eagles’ game against South Florida is the second of their three-game stretch in Florida and their second in a row of four-straight away games. This past Tuesday, the Eagles defeated the Presbyterian College Blue Hose 5-0. After playing SFU on Wednesday night, the Eagles will travel to Deland, Florida where they will take on Stetson University.

The next home game for the Eagles will be against Hartwick on Oct. 12, 2014 at 2 p.m.
