  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #1 (November 5, 1971)
    November 07, 2018
    The task of paring a list of 500 games down to 20 was at times daunting, and there were some challenges involving soccer that were not present for softball. Some of the games we’ve presented over the last several weeks were easy to choose, and the only question was where they would fall on the list, but there was never any doubt as to which game would occupy the top spot. Much like the number one game on softball’s top-20 countdown, it was an easy selection, as it represents two things that occurred at Barnett Field in the same game that have each happened only once on their home field. With their 1-0 overtime win over Rollins on November 5, 1971, the Moccasins not only clinched a conference championship in the most dramatic way possible, they also secured a bid to what has so far been their only trip to the NCAA Tournament.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #2 (September 15, 2006)
    November 02, 2018
    Sometimes the most memorable moments aren’t associated with a single game, or even a single play in a game, but the entire atmosphere surrounding those things. The game is still a big part of it, but there’s a lot more to the moment than what happens on the field. That was the case with No. 2 on our countdown, which occurred on September 15, 2006. It was a night that saw the Moccasins defeat Tampa 2-1, while celebrating the 50-year anniversary of men’s soccer at Florida Southern College.
  • Crowder Named to ALL-SSC Second Team
    October 31, 2018
    MELBOURNE, FL - Florida Southern women's soccer senior Gaelyn Crowder has been named to the All-SSC Second Team announced by the conference office on Wednesday. Crowder becomes the 26th different player in program history to earn All-SSC honors. Voting for the All-SSC honors and yearly awards was conducted among the league's women's soccer coaches.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #3 (September 12, 1987)
    October 30, 2018
    As already noted earlier in the countdown, soccer is a sport dominated by defense, so goals are normally at a premium. If every goal scored were comparable to a touchdown, then scoring 10 goals would be more akin to a 70-point explosion in American football. In today’s version of college football, 70 points are more common than it was a decade ago, but 100 points? That hasn’t been seen at the major college level in 50 years. The Moccasins have done the soccer equivalent of that much more recently, however, and it occurred on September 12, 1987, in a 16-0 win over Florida Bible College.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #4 (October 21, 2008)
    October 26, 2018
    In 2007, under second-year head coach Ben Strawbridge, the Florida Southern women’s soccer team had a breakthrough season that saw them go 12-7-1, doubling their win total from the previous year while reaching double-digit wins for the first time in team history. In a cruel ending, though, the Moccasins were denied their first trip to the NCAA Tournament when, despite being ranked high enough to receive an at-large bid, they were bumped by an automatic qualifier from the Gulf South Conference that was ranked below them. The following year, however, the Moccasins did get that trip to NCAA postseason play, and they all but secured it on October 21, 2008, with a 1-0 win over Tampa.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #5 (October 27, 2011)
    October 23, 2018
    In 2010, the Florida Southern men’s soccer team was in the running for a bid to the NCAA Tournament all the way until the final week of the season before a loss at Florida Tech in the final game of the season ended those hopes. Nevertheless, the Moccasins had put together a potent offense that returned largely intact in 2011, and finished eighth in the nation that year by averaging more than 2½ goals per game for the second year in a row. Hopes for the postseason were again high, but the mid-season schedule was unkind as losses to Palm Beach Atlantic, Lynn, and Rollins in the span of nine days (three teams that combined for 36 wins) offset a 4-1 start. The Mocs did rebound, however, with another strong run to end the season, culminating with a 4-1 win over 5th-ranked Rollins College, the highest ranked team the Mocs have ever beaten on their home field.
  • Florida Southern Closes Out 2018 in Miami Shores
    October 23, 2018
    LAKELAND, FL - Florida Southern women's soccer closed out its season with a 4-0 loss at No. 9 Barry on Tuesday night. The Mocs (5-10-1, 3-7-0 SSC) put the pressure on the Bucs (14-0-1, 9-0-1) in the first half but an early first-half goal would be all Barry needed to secure an unbeaten season and claim the SSC regular season title. Christy Grimshaw scored the game-winning goal in the 14th minute.
  • Florida Southern Defeated by Palm Beach Atlantic in Overtime
    October 20, 2018
    LAKELAND, FL - Florida Southern women's soccer honored its senior class prior to an overtime loss to Palm Beach Atlantic. The Mocs (5-9-1, 3-6-0 SSC) got on the board in the fifth minute to take a 1-0 lead over the Sailfish (7-7-1, 3-5-1). Midway through the overtime period Palm Beach Atlantic scored the game winner.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #6 (October 25, 1997)
    October 19, 2018
    The recent and continuing success of the 2018 men’s soccer team has drawn a lot of comparisons to past Moccasin teams, including one in particular. In 1997, the Moccasins were in their fifth season under former Florida Southern goalkeeper Kris Pahl, who by the end of his career would be involved in more games as a player, assistant coach or head coach than anyone else in the history of Florida Southern soccer, 357 to be exact. The Moccasins had been hovering right around the .500 mark for a few seasons prior to 1997, but it was that year in which they took the next step forward and began the greatest five-year run the program has ever had. From 1997-2001, the Mocs won 12 or more games four times, had three seasons allowing less than one goal per match, and became fixtures in the South Region rankings with many of those weeks in the national rankings as well. It was on October 25, 1997, that Florida Southern broke a mark that had stood for 25 years, setting a new school record for wins with a resounding 8-0 victory over Carson-Newman.
  • Moccasins Extend Winning Streak at Eckerd
    October 17, 2018
    LAKELAND, FL - Florida Southern women's soccer kept Eckerd College off the board for 89 minutes en route to its second-straight victory. Freshman Caitlyn Lowery gave the Mocs (5-8-1, 3-5-0 SSC) a crucial insurance goal in the 74th minute as they defeated Eckerd (6-5-1, 3-5-0) 2-1 on Wednesday night in St. Petersburg, FL.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #7 (October 30, 2012)
    October 16, 2018
    Ties are a way of life in soccer, though they often drive American sports fans out of their mind. It’s not that they don’t happen in other sports, but they’re so rare as to be noteworthy. Donovan McNabb once famously admitted he didn’t know NFL games could end in a tie, and the Florida Southern baseball team even played to a scoreless draw in 2018 at Mount Olive. In soccer, they happen frequently, and if a college postseason game ends in a draw, a series of five penalty kicks are used to determine which team advances to the next round, even though the official results still list it as a tie. By 2012, the Florida Southern women’s soccer team had been through that scenario four times in the previous four seasons, and come out on the wrong end in all four. On October 30, 2012, the Moccasins ended that hex, however, by “beating” Lynn in penalty kicks in the quarterfinals of the Sunshine State Conference Tournament.
  • Routt Named SSC Defensive Player-of-the-Week for Oct. 15
    October 15, 2018
    MELBOURNE, FL - After shutting out Embry-Riddle on Saturday night, Florida Southern women's soccer goalie Tori Routt was named Sunshine State Conference Defensive Player-of-the-Week for October 15. Routt's selection is the first for the Mocs this season and the first in her career. 
  • Routt Earns First Collegiate Victory in Shutout of Embry-Riddle
    October 13, 2018
    LAKELAND, FL - Freshman goalkeeper Tori Routt made a single save in her first collegiate shutout and victory as Florida Southern women's soccer defeated Embry-Riddle 1-0 on Saturday evening. Junior Alexa Moberley's late goal in the first half was all the scoring the match would see. The Mocs (4-8-1, 2-5-0 SSC) picked up their second SSC victory of the season, while the Eagles (6-5-0, 4-3-0) stay winless on the road.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #8 (October 10, 2015)
    October 11, 2018
    Despite some close calls through the years, Lynn University managed to keep its perfect record against Florida Southern intact all the way into the current decade. The Knights won the first 16 meetings between the two schools, and there were some painful losses for the Moccasins along the way. The Mocs finally broke that streak in 2010 with a 2-1 victory over the 15th-ranked Knights in Boca Raton, but a home win was more elusive. That took until October 10, 2015, when the defending national champion Knights came to Lakeland as title contenders again but left with a 1-0 loss to the Moccasins.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #9 (September 28, 1999)
    October 09, 2018
    The 1999 Florida Southern Moccasins were among the best men’s soccer teams the school has ever had, and their 13 wins remain the school record. That season fell right in the middle of a five-year run that saw them win 57 games under former Florida Southern goalkeeper Kris Pahl, who established the Moccasins as a power in the South Region and had them in contention for NCAA postseason play for the first time in many years. There were many memorable games during those five years, both at home and away, but one that stands out occurred on September 28, 1999, in a battle of nationally ranked teams involving Florida Southern and Lynn.
  • Early Goal Not Enough as Mocs Fall to NSU
    October 06, 2018
    FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - Elanee Otto's first career goal gave Florida Southern College women's soccer an early 1-0 lead, but Nova Southeastern struck for a pair of goals just one and a half minutes apart late in the first half to top the Moccasins, 2-1, in Sunshine State Conference action on Saturday at the NSU Soccer Complex. The Mocs (3-8-1, 1-5-0 SSC) fell for the third-straight match, while the Sharks (8-5-1, 3-2-1) improved to 6-1-1 at home this season.
  • Top-20 Soccer Moments at Barnett Field, #10 (October 23, 2010)
    October 05, 2018
    Previously, the No. 11 game on the top-20 countdown highlighted the first time Florida Southern ever scored 10 goals in a game, but it was far from the last, nor was it the last time the Moccasins would have two players with a hat trick in the same game. Seven times, Florida Southern has hit double digits in the goal column and in four of those games, two different Moccasins have scored at least three goals. The most recent occurrence begins the second half of the countdown at No. 10, and it took place on October 23, 2010, in a 10-0 win over Ave Maria.
