MOBILE, Ala. – The Eagles (6-2-1) lost 2-0 in their first Southern States Athletic Conference matchup of the season against No. 13 Mobile (6-2-1).
It was a back-and-forth match for the majority of the first half, but the Rams broke the stalemate in the 42nd minute when Matthew McArthur sent a corner kick into the box and Sam White finishing the play with a header into the back of the net.
The second goal for Mobile came early in the second half when Francisco Puentes committed a handball in the box, rewarding the Rams with a penalty kick that was converted by Newton Henry.
Caio Calado (6-2-1) started in goal for the Eagles and recorded three saves while giving up both goals.
Faulkner will travel to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, for their next matchup against No. 1 William Carey on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. central.
