WHEN: Saturday, 4 p.m., Rick Stottler Field
NEED TO KNOW: The No.9-ranked Spartans will try to keep the pressure on Rollins in the Sunshine State Conference title race when they travel to Melbourne to take on the Panthers.
The Spartans (11-1-1, 5-1-0 SSC) exploded offensively for six goals in their last outing against Nova Southeastern, Lister Warren and Greg Sasser each scoring twice in a 6-1 victory, continuing a trend that has seen Tampa average four goals per game in their last four contests.
The Spartans attack will likely test a Panthers defense that has allowed 1.50 goals per game this season. Florida Tech snapped a two-game losing run with a victory last Saturday against Nova Southeastern, but that was only the Panthers second SSC victory this season. The Panthers (7-7-0, 2-4-0) are led by Stanley Abade, who has scored seven goals this season.
