ORLANDO - Junior goalkeeper Ryan McIntosh made eight saves to earn his third shutout of the season as UCF defeated Campbell, 2-0, in Atlantic Sun men's soccer action on Saturday afternoon at the UCF Soccer Complex.
With the win, the Golden Knights remained a perfect 4-0 in the conference and improved to 5-3-2 overall, while the Fighting Camels dropped to 3-8-1, 2-4.
The two teams got nearly equal opportunity to score in the first half as shots were 8-8. Knight senior Xavier Delgado had prime chances on two separate headers, both saved by CU's keeper Brandon Kirksey (five saves). On the other half of the field, Willy Guadarrama put McIntosh to the test on three occasions.
Almost 11 minutes into the second half, freshman defender Phillip Michael Hall got an early 17th birthday gift, scoring his first collegiate goal. The play began off a corner kick by freshman Scott Baron. Hall's original header bounced around in the crowd of players in the box, but he found the back of the net on the rebound at 55:57.
Less than a minute and half later, junior Billy Judino passed the ball up to classmate Jon Imran, who dribbled in and scored his team-leading fifth goal of the year at 57:11.
UCF finished with a slight 16-15 edge in shots and a 5-2 advantage in corner kicks. The Golden Knights had 15 fouls to the Fighting Camels nine.
It was the 14th career shutout for McIntosh. He needs one more to move into a tie with Dan Cordia for third on UCF's all-time list.
Next up, the Golden Knights travel to Nashville, Tenn. where they take on Lipscomb at 8 p.m. on Oct. 21 before facing Belmont at 1 p.m. on Oct. 23. They return home on Oct. 29 to host Mercer at 7 p.m.
