Florida College Rallies to Beat CCC 2-1

Clearwater fell short at home Tuesday night in an anticipated rematch with local rival Florida College. The first half remained scoreless as both sides struggled to carve out real chances. The Cougars broke through in the second half with one of the goals of the season. Drew Custer played a 60-yard diagonal ball into the path of freshman midfielder Brad Cole, who volleyed an absolute screamer into the top corner. Florida College proved resilient however, and responded with a goal three minutes later. In another three minutes the Falcons added a second, which proved to be the game-winner. Clearwater pushed for the equalizer in the closing minutes, but could not find a way through. With the loss, the Cougars fall to 8-7 on the year.
