Orange soccer’s week didn’t start as well as they had wished, but it ended in a manner that they’ve grown used to so far this season…with a victory and a goal by junior Jamar Davis.
On Wednesday, the Panthers improved to 4-1 with a 3-1 victory over at Wake Forest. Bryan Torres scored the game-winning goal. Davis added insurance in the 2nd half, his ninth goal of the season. Only a junior, Davis opened the season with a hat trick in the opener at Northern Durham, then scored four goals against Bartlett Yancey last week. He also scored a goal in 9-1 rout of Graham.
Jesus Chavez notched the opener for the Panthers on an assist from Casey Barhydt.
On Monday, Orange looked for a defining victory over Riverside in Hillsborough. But the Pirates won a tight defensive battle 1-0. Anthony Argeuta chipped in the only goal on an assist from Eddie Gomez to hand Orange its first loss of the season.
Riverside’s Matt Schultz stopped six shots for the clean sheet.
Orange has its Big 8 Conference Opener on Wednesday at Cedar Ridge.
