Miller Posts Clean Sheet; Davis, Phillips & Krogstad Score as Orange Blanks Southern 3-0

Updated: October 19, 2017

Last time Orange faced Southern Durham on the soccer pitch, it took an overtime goal from Luke Wirzba to claim a vital win.

It wasn’t nearly as suspenseful on Wednesday night at Spartans Stadium.

Jamar Davis added to his stellar senior season with a goal, while Malcolm Phillips and Caleb Krogstad added insurance tallies as the Panthers defeated the Spartans 3-0.

Goalkeeper Noah Miller earned the shutout, his ninth of the season. Orange is now 13-5-2, the most victories in a season since 2010, at least. The Panthers are now in 3rd place in the Big 8 with a 10-3 record. The victory ended a two-game losing streak, including a 2-0 loss at Chapel Hill on Monday night which all but clinched the Big 8 Championship for the Tigers.

Davis also assisted on Phillips goal. Phillips and Ewan McCallum also recorded assists.

The Panthers piled up 15 shots against the Spartans, including Luke Wirzba totaling four.

Orange has one more game remaining in the regular season. They will host Northern Durham on senior night Monday at Panther Soccer Field. Seniors Davis, Krogstad, Omar Landeros, McCallum, Wirzba, Bryan Torres, Thomas Spikes, Phillips, Miller, Isaiah Dupre and Jesus Chavez will alll be honored before the game against the Knights, who Orange defeated 5-2 last month at Jack Armstrong Soccer Stadium.
