FLORENCE, SC – A pesky Francis Marion University squad held 17th-ranked Flagler College scoreless over the first 47 minutes, but the Saints tallied three scores in the second half to claim a 3-0 Peach Belt Conference win, Wednesday night (Oct. 25) in women's soccer action.

Francis Marion ends its 2017 season with a 5-9-0 record, a four-win improvement over the 2016 campaign.
