The Owls did a great job controlling the time of possession

Despite a tough loss at home, FAU managed to make great crosses offensively and had many scoring attempts. Those scoring attempts couldn’t find the net in the second half, but the Owls’ aggressive attack was a promising sign for their goal-scoring potential going forward.

FAU’s defense came to life after allowing two first-half goals

FAU’s defense kicked it into high gear after giving up two goals in the game’s first 45 minutes, limiting the Hatters from getting into goal-scoring position for most of the second half. The outcome of the match wasn’t what the Owls wanted, but if they play their upcoming games with the same defensive intensity they showed in the second half against Stetson, wins will soon follow.

Communication and discipline on the pitch must improve

FAU showed great ball control and attacking skills, but the communication was lacking in its loss to Stetson. The Owls racked up six cautions on the night, something FAU coach Joey Worthen has to clean up heading into conference play for his team to be successful.
