PENSACOLA, Fla. – The Spring Hill College men saw the University of West Florida score twice in eight minutes late in the second half to snatch a 2-1 victory away from Badgers on Wednesday night at the UWF Soccer Complex.
After a scoreless first half, the Badgers drew first blood in the 59th minute when sophomore Patrick Culotta of New Orleans, La., scored off an assist by freshman Tyler Hartlage from Tampa, Fla.
The Argos (3-2), however, regrouped to knot the game at one goal apiece in the 68th minute when Stephen Munoz bent a beautiful shot off a free kick from the top of the box past the SHC wall and into the right hand corner past a diving Badger keeper, senior Cory Bronenkamp of St. Louis, Mo.
In the 76th minute of play, UWF then took the lead when Matthew Aldred accepted through ball from Dillon Gallet and slipped a goal past the Badger defense.
In goal, Bronenkamp (4-1) faced 19 shots by UWF and made nine saves while Ramon Sealy (1-0) faced just five Badger shots and recorded four saves.
Spring Hill attempted four corner kicks and West Florida tried 11 corners.
The loss snapped a four-game winning streak by Spring Hill.
Spring Hill (4-1, 0-0 SSAC) travels to Marietta, Ga., on Sunday to open conference play at 5th ranked Southern Polytechnic State University (6-1, 2-1 SSAC) at 3 p.m. EST.
