Moments after falling to the No. 19 team in the country, the Moccasins learned Barry had lost to Eckerd, pushing Florida Southern through for the first time in four years.
MIAMI SHORES, FL – Benny Yusufoglu kept Florida Southern in the game and Barry off the scoreboard for 100 minutes Wednesday night before a goal by Miles Francis 21 seconds into the second overtime gave the Buccaneers a 1-0 victory.
