KNOXVILLE, Tennessee -- Ferrum College made the most of their road trip across state lines, winning 5-0 in a non-conference affair with the Royals of Johnson University.

Ferrum (7-2)
Johnson (1-2-3)

The first stanza quickly became the Felipe Artega show, as he got the Panthers on the board in the 29th minute with a goal from a Enzo Guercio pass. It was then Artega expanding the scoreline to a two-goal game with his second goal of the night, this time from a Jeffery Calix pass. Ferrum would head into the locker room with a 2-0 lead at the half.

The second half was all Ferrum as well, getting goals from Gio Murillo, Malik Timmons, and Marckensley Constant. Sam May received two points for his efforts, getting credited with an assist on the Murillo goal as well as the Timmons goal. Daniel Golden got the win in the net and turned in yet another clean sheet for the Panthers, his fourth in as many matches.

"We are very happy to get a road win against another team on the rise. The lads are working hard every day and will continue our work tomorrow for this weekend's contest." --Head Coach Enda Crehan
