ABILENE, Texas – Florida National University men’s soccer gets another win on the road, 5-2, in a non-conference game versus Mc Murry University (McM) at Wilford Moore Stadium.

FNU’s junior Pedro Veiga followed each of the PK’s with goals in the 23rd and 35th minutes to give the Conquistadors the 4-0 halftime cushion.

Just over a minute later, McM struck again. This time it was senior Josh Erwin notching his first goal of 2018, putting a shot into the upper left corner of the target, with Sanchez assisting once again at the 49:52 mark.
FNU added its final tally in the 68th minute for the 5-2 final score with junior Santiago Gaggero nice curved shot in right of goal from top left.
