MACON, Ga. – Mercer wrapped up its 2019 non-conference slate with a win Monday night, as the Bears shutout North Florida, 2-0, at Betts Stadium.

HOW IT HAPPENED
Trevor Martineau put the Bears up a goal relatively early in the contest, finding the back of the net in the 31st minute off an assist from Joshua Harrison – Martineau's eighth goal and Harrison's first assist of the season.
 
The match remained 1-0 through halftime before the shots started flying late in the game. JR DeRose did his part to keep the score where it was in the 77th minute – when he made a flying, back-handed save on a shot from UNF's Zane Bubb.
 
Mercer then put the game away when Leo Toledo Jr. took a pass from Michael Ille and shot one under the goalkeeper's legs for the 81st-minute goal.
 
NOTABLES

  • Trevor Martineau scored his eighth goal of the season Monday night – he has now tallied a point in each of Mercer's wins this season.
  • Joshua Harrison recorded his first assist of the season.
  • The shutout marked DeRose's third of the season – it was his first since the September 8 win over Memphis in Birmingham and the first at home this year.

 
UP NEXT
The Bears start their Southern Conference regular season title defense next Tuesday, October 15, in Spartanburg against Wofford.
