Judah Chapman and his Spring Hill College (SHC) Men's Soccer teammates opened their NCAA Division II regular season era with a 2-0 win over Flagler College.
Both teams felt each other out over the start of first half by trading scoring opportunities. As the period progressed, the Badgers began to control the pace of play and created multiple chances on goal. Both Matt Moreno and Alex Lipinski had excellent scoring opportunities turned aside by the Flagler goalkeeper that kept the score tied at 0-0 going into intermission.
Spring Hill finally broke the ice in the 54th minute when Cyril Giraud drove a shot in from the right corner off an assist from Timo Schabetsberger.
The Spring Hill offense quickly struck again in the 57th minute as Chapman beat the Flagler goalkeeper after receiving a pass from Alex Lipinski.
Spring Hill played inspired defense the rest of the way to preserve the 2-0 season opening victory.
