Close Scrimmage Ends in Loss for Cougars


(8/27/10) After an extended lightning delay, the Cougars began a strong game against St. Thomas University. With under a minute left on the clock in the first half of the game, Thiago Rocha scored off of a corner kick, bringing St. Thomas up 1-0.

After half-time the men created several scoring chances but were unable to utilize them. A handball was called against Clearwater, and St. Thomas was awarded a penalty kick that goalie Anthony DeRosse blocked; however, Rocha again scored by following the penalty kick with a rebound goal, bringing STU up by two points. Clearwater followed up quickly with a goal from Paul Vanaman; the rebound goal followed a header from Tyler Spraul off of a free kick from Juan Robayo. With the score 2-1 and Clearwater playing a fierce game, Pierre Seraphin from STU scored late in the game and sealed a win for St. Thomas.
