The Embry-Riddle men’s soccer team wrapped up its season-opening road trip with an impressive effort against #2 University of Mobile on Saturday, but ultimately fell 3-1. The Eagles were down 2-0 going into halftime, pulled within one goal at the start of the second half, but gave up a late goal as the Rams added an insurance tally in the final ten minutes.

The Eagles played from behind early, giving up a goal 1:50 into the contest. In the 27th minute, former Embry-Riddle player Chiedu Ikeme scored to give Mobile a 2-0 lead.

Embry-Riddle came right out of the half energized and firing, scoring in the 48’ off the boot of Lucas Garcia. The Eagles continued to push in the second half, firing six shots, with half of those attempts hitting the target.

Daniele Cerbini made six important saves in his first career start for the Eagles. Cerbini gave Embry-Riddle an opportunity to stay in the game during the first half, making four saves during the opening 45 minutes. 

Garcia led the way again in the shot department for ERAU, firing three on Saturday. Garcia now has seven shots through the first two games. Paul Fulop had a pair of shots, both hitting the target.

The Eagles will have a week off to prepare for another top-10 contest next Saturday. Embry-Riddle will host 10th-ranked OUAZ in the home opener next Saturday, with kickoff from Prescott scheduled for 7PM.
