Goddard replaced regular starting goalkeeper Ryan Thompson, who got the day off after the No.3 Spartans 2-1 victory against Palm Beach Atlantic on Tuesday night. The Spartans (7-0-1) play three games in four days this week, including a Sunshine State Conference game against Florida Southern on Friday night. Goddard made five saves to hold off the Warriors (6-5-0).
“I'm very happy for Clete Goddard and the entire backline,” Spartans coach Adrian Bush said. “We've got to continue to build and get better in a lot of areas of our game. We've got to get ready for Florida Southern on Friday night.”
Pascal Milien picked up where he left off against PBA, scoring his third goal in two days for the only goal of the game. Milien notched his eighth goal of the season in the 26th minute, which proved enough for the Spartans to earn victory.
