Men’s soccer overcomes penalty kick pressure

By Marisa Strawn |

If having the pressure on your shoulders to host the NCAA Division II Championship soccer games at home field is not enough, adding pressure of going into penalty kicks with one of the top teams in that conference can be overwhelming. This is exactly what happened to the Flagler College men’s soccer team.

Due to their winning record within the Peach Belt Conference, the men found themselves hosting the championship tournament at home, with each game being an elimination round. This is extremely stressful for a team, knowing that the game they are currently playing, could be their seniors last game as collegiate athletes.
