Knights Hold Off Panthers 1-0

FERRUM, VA - Derrick Maggard scored in the 75th minute of play to lead Southern Virginia University to a 1-0 win over Ferrum College in non-conference men's soccer action Sept. 12 at Penn-Roediger Field.

SVU's Josh Pitino ripped a shot, which was stopped by Ferrum goalkeeper Chris Taylor, but when the ball popped loose, Maggard was there to put it away.

Coach Longenecker stated "The game was a continuous battle throughout, it seemed like a continuation of the 0-0 tie from last year. Our players are starting to jell and have a commitment to play unselfishly ....we are still young in the season, and have lots to do and accomplish. The team's heartbeat is very strong and their determination to strive and help each other to be the very best they can is very evident in practices and games. We look forward to hosting Washington & Lee and how we can improve in our matches each time we take the pitch."

The Knights return to action on September 15 against Washington and Lee at 4 p.m. at Southern Virginia.
