The UWF men’s soccer team continued its undefeated season with a win against Spring Hill College on Thursday with a final score of 1-0.

The Argos were able to keep control of the game, despite not scoring until the end of the first overtime period. Marteinn Urbancic, a junior from the Commercial College of Iceland, shot the winning goal.

“They were doing pretty good, but I was afraid the game would never end,” said Amanda O’Beid, a senior majoring in hospitality, who frequents soccer games. “The game was so intense, but I’m really happy we won in the end.”

The Argos finished the game with 22 shots, seven shots on goal, one save, five corners, four offsides and 7 fouls. Spring Hill finished with five shots, one shot on goal, six saves, three corners, two offsides and 14 fouls.

The men’s soccer team will travel to Mobile to play against the University of Mobile at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 21. The team will kick off the start of the Gulf South Conference competition by traveling to Jackson, Tennessee to play against Union University at 7:15 p.m. on Sept. 25.

The women’s soccer team defeated Spring Hill 5-0 on Saturday after losing their first game of the season to Tampa by a score of 2-1 on Sept. 13. The Lady Argos will play Montevallo next on Sept. 22.
