No.3 Tampa (8-0-1, 3-0-0) cruised to a 4-0 victory against Florida Southern (1-8-0, 1-4-0) on Friday night, completing a perfect week for the Spartans, who remained undefeated on the season.
After scoring three goals in the past two games, Pascal Milien turned provider on the Spartans first two goals on Friday, finding Lister Warren close in for the opening goal in the 16th minute. Former Plant City High standout doubled the Spartans lead in the 29th minute, taking a pass from Milien at the top of the penalty area before driving into the penalty area and scoring.
Zach Fraser’s 39th minute goal from the right added a third for the Spartans before half time. The win was Tampa’s third in four days after earning victories against Palm Beach Atlantic on Tuesday and Webber International on Wednesday.
“Three games in four days is never easy,” Spartans coach Adrian Bush said. “It’s a credit to the guys on a great week, but now we’ve got three days to get ready for Eckerd.”
The Lions face the Tritons on Tuesday night in what is shaping up to be a critical Sunshine State Conference game. Eckerd is 3-1 in the SSC, and a win would propel them into the conference championship race.
