HEAD COACH

Munga Eketebi HEAD COACH First Season

Ekebeti realizes it won't be easy following a coaching legend like Kremser, but he appears more than ready for the challenge. “I can never thank Coach Kremser enough for everything he’s done for me,” said Eketebi. “It's always tough to come in and follow someone like that. His accomplishments at FIU speak for themselves and he definitely left big shoes to fill, but I am looking forward to this opportunity.”

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT MUNGA EKETEBI

Munga Eketebi becomes only the fourth head coach in the 35-year history of the Florida International University men’s soccer program on May 19, 2007, when he replaced Karl Kremser who announced his retirement after 27 years at the helm. No stranger to Golden Panthers soccer, the 45-year old Eketebi has been an imposing figure on the FIU men’s soccer sideline for nearly 25 years. After a four-year playing career with the University from 1983-86, he has worked as an integral part of the FIU coaching staff nearly ever since. “Coach Eketebi is a well-respected member of the soccer community and deserving of this chance to lead our program,” said FIU Athletic Director Pete Garcia on making the announcement promoting Eketebi. “We are excited about the future of men’s soccer at Florida International University.” A prolific scorer as a collegian, Eketebi’s 50 career goals still remain tied for the most in program history. Additionally, his 124 career points rank second and his 24 assists tie him for fifth among FIU's all-time scoring leaders. He was a key member of the 1984 Division II National Championship squad and the 1985 national runner-up team with six playoff goals, including four in an NCAA Tournament win over Lock Haven (Pa.) in 1984. Eketebi is one of only a handful of FIU student-athletes ever to be voted All-America three times. He is a member of the University’s Wall of Fame and was also a four-time all-state and three-time All-South honoree. After helping FIU to the NCAA Division II national championship final, Eketebi was selected as the state of Florida’s Player of the Year in 1985. After his outstanding playing career, Eketebi worked as the FIU program’s top assistant helping with day-to-day practices, administrative duties and recruiting. Eketebi did take a short hiatus in 1996 when he served a oneyear stint as the men's head coach at Nova Southeastern University. There, he guided the NAIA Knights to a 12-6-1 record, including an undefeated regular-season record in the Sun Conference. Eketebi, who has a Florida coaching license, has served as an assistant coach with the USISL Florida Stars and the South Florida select program. He was involved administratively with the Miami Sharks and Miami Freedom of the American Professional Soccer League. He also assisted with many international games played throughout South Florida, including the Marlboro Cup, U.S. Cup and the Pélé Cup. Eketebi headed the Gulliver Prep girls' squad and the Miami Futbol Club from 1991-93, and coached K-Land Youth Clubs from 1985-90, Miami Springs High School in 1985-86 and Belen Jesuit Prep in 1983. Before attending FIU, Eketebi competed with the European high school championship team at College DeLeman (Switzerland) from 1976 through 1979. Schooled in Europe, he speaks four languages fluently – English, French, Italian and Spanish.

Bruce Arena (New York Red Bulls Sporting Director/Head Coach, Former U.S. National Team Head Coach, Four-time University of Virginia NCAA National Championship Head Coach): “Munga has been one of the outstanding coaches in Florida over the past 20 years. He's touched the lives of so many young players and has been extremely supportive of the game at all levels. I have known him personally and can attest to the fact that there is not a finer person in the sport. He has all the tools to further build the FIU program as a winner.” Thomas Rongen (Head Coach Under-20 U.S. National Team, Former head coach Ft. Lauderdale Strikers and Tampa Bay Mutiny): “Munga and I go back many years to my playing days playing with the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers when he was one of the most prolific college players in the nation. Any time you can get a former standout player involved in your program as head coach is a big plus. He understands the academic side as well as the playing side better than anybody else that I’ve known. “Munga has a great passion for the game and for his student-athletes. He will provide tremendous expertise and knowledge in his own gentle-giant way. He will make a great ambassador for the program. He’s an outstanding choice, and this is an excellent opportunity for a great person.” Bobby Boswell (2006 MLS All-Star, RadioShack Best 11 member): “I’m excited for Munga. There is not a better person for the job. It is fitting that he takes over an organization that he has been part of for many years. Munga possesses a great eye for talent and his system works. A very personable guy off the field, he’s all business once it comes to soccer.” Shawn Crow (2006 FIU Soccer Alumnus, DC United draft choice): “First and foremost, Munga is a great person. Above that, he is very knowledgeable about the game and was always there when his players needed them.” Robin Fraser (Former U.S. National Team member, Five-time MLS All-Star): “I am so very pleased for Munga and it is extremely fitting that he would get this opportunity. Few have put more time into this program and he has really dedicated his adult life to FIU soccer.” Tyrone Marshall (2004-05 Los Angeles Galaxy Defensive Player of the Year, Former Jamaican National team member): “This is a great opportunity for Munga. He has worked in the shadows for so many years and this is his coming out. He was a great player and he is a great coach. I know that he will be a head coach who players will really enjoy competing for. He has been in the trenches and knows what players are going through out on the field and how they think.” Steve Ralston (U.S. National Team member, 1996 MLS Rookie of the Year, Five-time MLS All-Star): “First of all, I’m happy for Munga who has patiently waited for his chance at becoming head coach. It would have been a mistake not to afford him this opportunity. He was obviously a great player on the field for FIU but the things he did for the program off the field are immeasurable as well. He is an outstanding person and he is going to make an outstanding head coach.”

C OAC H I N G S TA F F Matias Asorey

ASSISTANT COACH FIRST SEASON

Former FIU standout Matias Asorey returns to his alma mater as a firstyear assistant coach for the 2007 Golden Panthers men’s soccer team. Asorey, a four-year letter winning at FIU from 1999 through 2002, still ranks tied for ninth on the school’s all-time scoring list, finishing his collegiate playing career with 26 goals and 13 assists, including team highs of eight and 13 scores in 2001 and ’02 respectively. Among his many playing honors, Asorey was twice named as the Atlantic Soccer Conference’s Player of the Year, and in 2002 he not only led the league in goals but also with 29 points. Asorey was a 2002 first-team AllSouth Region selection of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) while leading FIU to NCAA Tournament appearances in two consecutive years (2001-02). Since ending his playing career, Asorey has gone on to become a successful high school coach, leading Miami’s Felix Varela to the 2007 state championship. Following the campaign he was named Miami-Dade County’s Coach of the Year. Born in Argentina, Asorey came to the United States as a youth and attended Miami Sunset High School where he led the Knights with 64 goals and 57 assists in four years. He was selected to the All-Dade County boy’s soccer team as a junior and senior and left Sunset as that school’s all-time leading scorer. “Matias is a talented young coach and a former player here who knows the standard we’ve established. He’ll be counted on to assist with the dayto-day practice, recruiting and with the administration of our program,” said FIU head coach Munga Eketebi.

Joe Massi

ASSISTANT COACH

Massi has an “A” coaching license and has worked at all levels of the sport, from the youth leagues up through the professional ranks. Some of his previous coaching assignments include: serving as assistant to current Chivas USA sporting director Thomas Rongen with the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers (ASL), helping that organization to the 1989 league championship; assisting Herb Dunning with the 1983 Miami-Dade junior college national champions; head coaching the 1980 state championship squad at Coral Gables Senior High School; and working with FIU alumnus Jeff Cassar as the goalkeeper volunteer coach with the MLS’ Miami Fusion in 1998. Not only has Massi traveled to Europe for many clinics and coaching sessions—including spending time with Malmo, Göteborg, Helsinborg, OIS of Sweden, Ajax of Holland and FC Koln of Germany, but he has also been responsible for bringing top instructional clinics into South Florida.

George Moyssidis

VOLUNTEER ASSISTANT COACH FIRST SEASON

George Moyssidis, a prolific goal scorer who helped FIU reach the 1980 NCAA Division II National Championship finals, returns to his alma mater as the volunteer assistant on the staff of head coach Munga Eketebi. Moyssidis was the leading scorer for the Sunblazers during the 1979 and '80 campaigns with 21 and 27 goals respectively. He added a team-leading 16 assists in the 1980 campaign in helping FIU to a final 13-4-0, including an 11-match win streak, which ended in a 1-0 overtime loss to Lock Haven (Pa.) in the national title game. Following that season, Moyssidis was selected as the State of Florida Player of the Year and earned All-South Region honors. More than 25 years later, Moyssidis' name appears among the program's all-time leaders. Despite playing only two years at FIU, Moyssidis ranks third in all-time scoring with 48 goals and 21 assists, good for 117 points, behind only all-time leader Hermann-Josef Engels (126 points) and Eketebi (124). Moyssidis remains the program's individual season leader in shots (104), goals (27) and points (70) and ranks among the top-5 in career goals and points. Since graduating from FIU in 1981 with a degree in electrical engineering, Moyssidis has been employed by the Florida Power & Light Company and currently works at FPL's Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant in the training department as a simulator engineer.

With more than two decades of coaching experience, assistant coach Joe Massi has been associated with the Florida International men’s soccer program since he played on its very first team in 1972. The native of Cleveland, Ohio, lettered on both the 1972 and ’73 squads, and competed as a member of the soccer team at Miami Dade College prior to his stint with the Golden Panthers.

Moyssidis has remained active in soccer coaching for the last 14 years as a state instructor with the Florida OPD where he has mentored current MLS and U-20 National Team members Bryan Arguiez (D.C.), Dax McCarty (Dallas) and Nathan Sturgis (Los Angeles). At the grassroots level, Moyssidis works as a volunteer trainer of coaches in the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO). Married to his wife, Barbara, the couple has three children: Stavros (27), Christopher (26) and Elizabeth (22). 2007 FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY MEDIA GUIDE

SEASON OUTLOOK

Despite major changes that have occurred at the top of the Florida International University men's soccer program, first-year head coach Munga Eketebi -- a fixture on the Golden Panthers sideline for more than two decades -- promises little will change in the style of play on the field. What must change, however, is FIU's scoring output, which hit an all-time low last season. But despite scoring just 18 goals in 18 matches in 2006, the Golden Panthers defense allowed just 20 goals over regular-season play that kept them close throughout a 6-10-2 campaign. With a solid corps of returning veterans and a group of talented newcomers, several of whom have bona fide offensive credentials, Eketebi looks for his team to reverse their fortunes in 2007. "We definitely have the talent and speed to move up in the Conference USA standings," Eketebi said. "Last year, we played Kyle Thomas well for the most part but couldn't score. We had opportunities for goals and the team was in almost every game. But players just couldn't finish. We're hoping many of the newcomers we are bringing in will help change all that." Eketebi scoured the nation looking for offensive help. Close to home, he discovered “Jair” Cabas, a first-team All-Dade County performer who scored 63 career goals and 32 assists at Miami Coral Park. From Tampa, Fla., Eketebi attracted David Stovall, a four-year prep letterwinner who helped Tampa Wharton to the district championship and topped the league with 15 assists and finishing third with 14 goals. Eketebi looked west and came away with Houston, Texas' Mark Zimmerman, a four-year all-district performer and amateur standout, while Arizona's contribution is Jean Paul Whiley, an all-region performer, team MVP and member of the Trinidad National U-17 team who was also a state track and field finalist in the 100- and 200-meter dashes and 4x100 relay. With the graduation of last year's leading scorer, David Hope, sophomore Christian Caporaletti (Miami) is the team's top returning scorer after registering four goals for eight points as the team's Newcomer of the Year. Eketebi also expects a comeback campaign from Levi Coleman (Broken Arrow, Okla.) who was named to the C-USA All-Freshman team in 2005 but managed just one goal last year. The midfield has potential if current players can show the consistency needed to succeed at this level. Seniors Edgard Corrêa and Mario Franca, junior Richard Martinez and sophomores Cesar DeOliveira and Juan Guerra will all be given opportunities to prove themselves and regain their previous form. Nagging injuries have kept Corrêa from developing after an outstanding freshman season that saw him named as the team’s Newcomer of the Year. Coaches hope he can end his collegiate career with that same sort of success. Franca can play as either a striker or as an outside midfielder

2007 FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY MEDIA GUIDE

and as a fifth-year senior, coaches will expect leadership and determination out on the field. Martinez showed flashes of brilliance last season and is the only returning multi-assist performer on the team. DeOliveira can perform as a central defender or defensive midfielder. He is physically strong and was involved on defense last season with three opponent shutouts. Guerra is another very talented midfielder who sat out last year after a 2005 injury. As a freshman, he scored a goal and two assists in only six matches. Freshmen Agustin Alterman, Davide Bombonato, Diego Rodriguez and Will Vennigor will be pushing for an opportunity to contribute. Alterman and Bombonato were both spring walk-ons who impressed the coaching staff enough that they were asked back this fall. Rodriguez grew up in Texas but spent the last two years at Miami Springs High School where he was team MVP. Vernigor is a krafty, hard-working outside midfielder who has played as an amateur in Mexico and Italy and was a 2007 trial list player of the Colorado Rapids. Defense should once again be the Golden Panthers strong suit led by last year's team Defensive MVP, Raoul Voss (Mühlheim, Germany), who anchored the back line and was one of only three players to start all 18 matches on the season. Ainsley Deer (Kingston, Jamaica) is a very quick and hard tackler who should be a mainstay on the left side and Phill Fisher (Swindon, England) is expected to have a strong influence on defense as one of the back anchors and team co-captain. After four years of now-DC United property Shawn Crowe in goal, there will be a changing of the guard with Kyle Thomas (Jensen Beach, Fla.) returning as the only candidate with playing time under his belt. Thomas came on in a big way as the season progressed, playing in eight matches and starting six, including five C-USA games and the league championship match against SMU where he recorded 13 saves that tied a 26year school record. Redshirt freshman Michael Anderson (Weston, Fla.) and transfer Matias Wilson (Weston, Fla.) should also get a look at minding the nets. The Golden Panthers will once again take on a daunting schedule beginning with the season opener at home against Bowling Green on August 31. Enter its third season as an associate member of Conference USA, FIU plays a full slate of league matches including back-to-back contests against C-USA's two NCAA participants of last year-at UAB on October 13 and at SMU on October 20. FIU's non-conference schedule features play against NCAA Tournament competitors Connecticut (Sept. 8) and Illinois-Chicago (Sept. 21), in-state foes South Florida (Sept. 7), Florida Atlantic (Nov. 4) and upstart Florida Gulf Coast (Nov. 7) and an early-season weekend in Ann Arbor, Mich., against Michigan State (Sept. 14) and Michigan (Sept. 16). The year culminates at the Conference USA Championship Tournament in Birmingham, Ala., the week of November 14-18. Ainsley Deer

THIS IS FIU THE BAND OF THE SUN The Band of the Sun is an important member of the FIU School of Music, made up of the best and brightest students from both the University Park and Biscayne Bay campuses. Representing over 30 majors and disciplines, the band is a microcosm of the diverse University and Miami culutres. In only its sixth year of existence, The Band of the Sun has already established itself as one of the premier collegiate marching bands in the State of Florida through a high standard of excellence in performance and entertainment. THE FIU CHEERLEADERS In 1998, the FIU Cheerleaders received national recognition when they won the National Cheerleaders Association Grand National Championship Award. The FIU cheerleading squad was the first team from Florida to win the national crown, and the team remains among the best in the nation, placing third at the NCA Championships in 2005.

THE MASCOT When FIU first opened its doors in 1972 the Sunblazer was its mascot. The Sunblazers represented FIU for 14 years, but in 1987, University President Dr. Modesto A. Maidique promoted a campaign to replace the Sunblazer with the Golden Panther, a mascot that better represented FIU and its ties to Florida’s natural environment. The University also adopted new school colors – blue and gold. In 2001, the FIU Golden Panther got a makeover, and the result was a “meaner, leaner” predator. ALUMNI With more than 117,500 alumni, Golden Panthers constitute the fastest growing university alumni group in Miami-Dade County. FIU confers approximately half of all degrees now awarded by universities in Miami-Dade County.

With a year-round tropical climate, exciting attractions, professional and intercollegiate sports teams, art, history, museums and all of the nature parks and education one could ask for, GREATER MIAMI AND THE BEACHES has become a superstar of the world’s travel destinations. Due to its location in a tropical climate, Greater Miami and the Beaches has many activities and attractions that differ from most vacation spots. This tropical cosmopolitan city boasts some of the world's most beautiful beaches and ecological wonders, such as the Everglades, right next to one of the world's most vibrant urban centers. Miami, one of the most international cities in the hemisphere, is Florida's largest urban center and a major transportation and business hub of the southeastern U.S. Greater Miami, which comprises the city of Miami and surrounding Miami-Dade County, includes Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Hialeah and many smaller communities. The Miami area's history dates back to the discovery of the "New World." Ponce de Leon saw the tip of Key Biscayne in 1513 and named it, more than 100 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. In the 1850s only about 50 persons lived permanently on Biscayne Bay, and it wasn't until the 1870s that Bahamian wreckers helped found the area's first real community, Coconut Grove. Miami was incorporated in 1896, the same year that Standard Oil co-founder and railroad magnate Henry Flagler decided to extend his railroad south from West Palm Beach to Miami. During the land boom of the 1920s, Miami's population swelled and, thanks to its inviting, subtropical climate, it emerged as one of the nation's great winter resorts. Miami Beach is known for its historic art deco district and the numerous hotels that line its beaches, and the area is filled with marinas and golf courses. Since the 1950s, commercial growth has grown significantly. Miami International Airport is the nation's largest international cargo hub and third in terms of international passengers. The Port of Miami is the number one cruise port in the world.

Built in the roaring ‘20s, Coral Gables is a prosperous and dramatically beautiful city, marked by Spanish-style mansions, huge ficus trees, coral rock pools, lush golf courses and a commercial area that’s jam-packed with specialty shops and restaurants. Like most ethnic enclaves, Little Havana and Little Haiti are brimming with immigrant optimism. The Moorish architecture of Opa-Locka, inspired by the Arabian Nights stories, is a stunning inner-city collection of minarets, domes and horseshoe arches. South Dade offers a more rural ambiance and features must-see spots such as Everglades and Biscayne National Parks, Miami MetroZoo, the Homestead Motorsports Complex and more. The waterfront city of Key Biscayne can only be described as an island paradise.

The treatment and rehabilitation of injured athletes at FIU takes place at three on-campus facilities as well as at the 24-hour University HealthCare and Wellness Center. The crown jewel of the athletic training complex is its state-ofthe-art, 6,500 square-foot main center that conveniently located adjacent to Pharmed Arena. The facility features a hydrotherapy room, which includes custom-built, underground hot and cold plunge pools and a therapy pool with an underwater treadmill, a doctor’s examination room, functional training area, rehabilitation area with 12 treatment tables and an audio-visual system that includes high definition and flat screen televisions. Satellite facilities are located at the baseball stadium and in the softball/tennis field house. The athletic training staff works closely with several sports medicine physicians and FIU student-athletes may receive specialized care at any time from Drs. Keith S. Hechtman and John Zvijac, orthopedists; Drs. Mario Leyte-Vidal and Michael Robinson, dentists; Drs. Stephen Morris and Robert Tanner, optom-etrists; and Dr. Esther Levin, cardiologist, as well as by members of the FIU Health-Care and Wellness Center headed by Dr. Robert Dollinger, internist. The athletic training staff and team physicians are committed to providing the most comprehensive and safest health care possible.

Compliance with NCAA regulations is of the highest priority for our athletic program and institution. We need your assistance in complying with NCAA rules. If you are faced with a situation and unsure as to how to respond, contact Associate Athletic Director for Compliance Jody Smith at (305) 348-2756 before acting.

CONFERENCE USA The Florida International University men’s soccer program enters its third season as an associate member of Conference USA. The Golden Panthers followed up a successful five-year run in the Atlantic Soccer Conference – including four conference titles, three conference Players of the Year and 32 all-conference selections – with a strong C-USA inaugural season in 2005. FIU finished the regular season in fourth place with a 4-3-2 mark and advanced to the Conference USA Tournament. That season, four Golden Panthers earned all-conference accolades, including a first-team nod to Lucas Scudeler. Last year, three more FIU players were honored with C-USA honors led by David Hope’s second-team inclusion.

coaches, in SMU’s Schellas Hyndman, USC’s Mark Berson and Marshall’s Bob Gray.

Kentucky and South Carolina joined FIU as associate members of the league in 2005, while UAB, UCF, Marshall, Memphis, SMU and Tulsa compete in all Conference USA intercollegiate sports – including men’s soccer. The teams will play an eight-match round-robin schedule, with the top eight finishers in the regular season qualifying for the 2007 conference tournament to be held at Birmingham, Ala.

For Conference USA, dedication to excellence is a common thread in athletics, academics and in the community, and the guiding initiative for the league's promising future. Formed in 1995, it quickly emerged as one of the nation's top conferences. C-USA sponsors competition in 19 sports nine for men (baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, soccer, tennis and indoor and outdoor track and field) and 10 for women (basketball, cross country, golf, softball, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field and volleyball).

The league’s accomplished membership includes a pair of teams that competed in the 2006 NCAA Tournament in Southern Methodist and UAB, ESPN The Magazine's Academic All-America University Division I Player of the Year, SMU goalkeeper Matt Wideman, Hermann Trophy finalist, SMU defender Jay Needham, and three of the NCAA’s top-10 winningest active

Conference USA represents the third league affiliation for FIU men’s soccer in its 35-year history. Since taking the field as an NCAA Division I program in 1987, the Golden Panthers have played in the Trans America Athletic Conference (now the Atlantic Sun) from 1991-97 and the Atlantic Soccer Conference (2000-04) where they posted a 24-3-2 (.862) record.

NCAA TOURNAMENT 1996 NCAA DIVISION I RUNNERS-UP 36th Annual NCAA Division I Championship December 15, 1996 Richmond, Virginia

FIU qualified for the Final Four with a 1-0 thriller over three-time national champ Indiana. The dream of winning a Division I national title was within reach.

Karl Kremser must have thought he and his Golden Panther men’s soccer team had just finished filming the opening scene of television’s “Wide World of Sports.”

After the season-ending loss, Kremser tried to console his team in a closed-door meeting. “Don’t let this one loss detract from the kind of season you had,” said the coach. “It was a great year and I’m proud of you all.”

The team had made it all the way to the NCAA Division I National Championship Final Four in Richmond, Virginia, and during one weekend, experienced both the “joy of victory and the agony of defeat.”

Regardless of the final outcome, it was a weekend that 21 players and three coaches will never forget. From the time they arrived at Richmond International Airport, banners were welcoming them, and soccer fans from across the country were trying to get close to them.

In the semifinal match against Charlotte, FIU started slowly and then came back to defeat the 49ers, 4-0, in the most lopsided semifinal victory in more than a dozen years. Tyrone Marshall, who sealed the win with a flying bicycle kick goal that was the talk of the tournament, punctuated the team effort. “Worth the price of admission,” quipped Charlotte Coach John Tart.

Everywhere there were small children with soccer balls looking to meet the student-athletes and coaches. On Saturday, at a special NCAA clinic for at-risk children, more than 500 youngsters got a chance to mingle with the players and get autographs.

Despite the win, a major setback occurred when team leader and star defender Kevin Birusingh was carried off the field after a sliding tackle and collision with a Charlotte player. Birusingh fractured his leg and spent the night in a Richmond hospital instead of celebrating with teammates.

Meanwhile back home, the team’s accomplishments were making headlines. Tournament results were the lead sports stories on the local television newscasts and color art appeared along front-page stories in the The Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel.

For Sunday’s nationally televised championship match against St. John’s, the sun appeared for the first time all weekend, but for the most part, it shone only on the Red Storm’s side of the field. St. John’s took advantage of Birusingh’s absence and scored a pair of first-half goals for a 2-0 lead at the intermission.

“It took us a while to get over it. There was a real sense of disappointment after the loss in the finals, but it was a great run,” said Kremser. “I believe we represented ourselves and our university to our utmost capabilities.”

FIU closed to within 2-1 when All-American Ignace Moleka scored, but that was as close as it would get. St. John’s added two insurance goals, the last one while playing shorthanded following an ejection, and won its first NCAA national championship crown. The Golden Panthers battled adversity all season long. Kremser told anyone who would listen that he had a talented-enough team, but injuries and defections chipped away at the team’s base. In the end, he was left with a shell of the team he had started out with in August. Despite it all, FIU was selected as the second-seeded team in the NCAA field of 32. The Golden Panthers thumped the University of South Florida, 6-1, in the tourney’s opening round at University Park, and then defeated Rutgers, 2-0, in a second-round game played during a driving rain storm and near-freezing temperatures in Piscataway, New Jersey.

In a game matching two teams looking for their first NCAA championship soccer title, the host Golden Panthers defeated Southern Connecticut State, 2-1.

Rallying around the call “You gotta believe,” FIU won its second NCAA national soccer championship in three years with a 1-0 victory over Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, Washington.

For FIU, the game was a chance to make amends for a 1-0 double-overtime loss to Lock Haven in the 1980 final. Southern Connecticut, meanwhile, was hoping the fifth time would be the charm. The Owls had made four straight semifinal appearances before finally reaching the championship match.

Playing on a foreign, narrow, artificial-turfed field in front of 4,500 hostile fans and against the defending national champion, FIU still managed to pull out a victory, despite being outshot 29-5.

The Golden Panthers, playing before a partisan crowd of 1,300 on a warm and windy afternoon, dominated much of the game, but still had to survive a furious Southern Connecticut rally in the final 10 minutes. FIU’s leading scorer Hermann-Josef Engels got the Golden Panthers off on the right foot with his 15th goal of the season at the 36:21 mark. A goalmouth scramble produced a short head pass from midfielder Greg Anderson back to Engels, who slotted it home from short range. Anderson triggered FIU’s second goal when he fed Max Rodriguez on a quick break just after halftime. Rodriguez’s eight-yard shot beat Southern Connecticut goalkeeper Jim O’Brien to give the Golden Panthers a 2-0 lead. Southern Connecticut State pulled back into the game when Hans Bogren converted a Sammi Joseph pass at the 79:54 mark. The Owls created several more opportunities in the final minutes, but FIU goalkeeper Everton Edwards preserved the win.

Troy Edwards headed in a corner kick by Orlando Barrios at 5:03 of the first overtime to give FIU the win. It was FIU’s first and only corner kick of the game. “We got killed in every statistic, but we won, and that’s what counts,” recalled Head Coach Karl Kremser. “It was so gratifying because this was a real team of character. We never lost faith. As sparse as our opportunities were, the one really good chance we had, we snatched it. And we did it under the most severe conditions.” A defensive misplay gave FIU the kick from the right corner. Barrios took the corner and arced the ball to the far side of the Seattle Pacific net, beyond goalkeeper Bill Glandon. There was no defender at the left post, and Edwards, a defender himself, made his fifth goal of the season with a header that angled down and just inside the left post.

The victory was the first national championship in any sport for FIU. S. Conn. State 0 FIU 1
