Goleman graduate Chris Valdes helps undefeated STU soccer team

St. Thomas University soccer player Chris Valdes, a Barbara Goleman High graduate, helped the Bobcats remain undefeated in conference play, as his team defeated rival Florida Memorial University, 7-1, last week at home.

Bobcats starters Santeri Bergman, Harry Molyneux, and Chris Giraldo were also stout throughout the match, holding the Fighting Lions to just two shots in the first half and none on goal.
The defense continued to hold the Lions scoreless for the first 63 minutes of the match before allowing a goal in the 64th minute.

In total, the Bobcats out-shot the Lions 31-4 with an 18-2 advantage in shots on goal. As a testament of STU's dominance, the Bobcats attempted 14 corner kicks to just two corner kicks by the Lions.

The win extended STU's win streak to five games, all in Sun Conference play. In the five conference wins, the Bobcats have outscored their opponents 23-2 with three shutouts.

On offense, Federico Moronell scored two goals to lead the Bobcats, rising his team high goal total to 10 on the season.
