BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—With a 1-0 victory against Hendrix Saturday afternoon, Birmingham-Southern Head's Men's Soccer Coach Preston Goldfarb picked up his 350th career victory.

Goldfarb, who BSC's field was named after last season, is in his 32nd season at the helm of the men's soccer program.

Today was also Senior Day for the team, with Ryan Deveikis, Ian Everett, and Jonas Heidrich being recognized prior to the game.

In the regular season finale for both teams, the Panthers moved to 11-3-1 overall and 5-2 in the Southern Athletic Association, and the Warriors fell to 3-14-1 overall and 0-7 in the SAA.

Although the first half was scoreless, Hendrix took three shots on goal and BSC had two. The only goal of the game was in the 67th minute, when the Warriors committed a foul inside the box, setting up junior Bastian Jedliczka for the penalty kick, which he made for his 14th goal of the season. On the same play, Hendrix was called for a red card, putting the Panthers at a one-man advantage for the remainder of the game.

Heidrich recorded three saves for BSC, while Hendrix keeper Nathan Myers made seven saves. The Panthers out-shot the Warriors 16-10.

BSC begins post-season play next weekend, traveling to Conway, Ark., where Hendrix will host the 2014 SAA Championship. The Panthers will be either the first or second seed, depending upon the outcome of today's Millsaps vs. Rhodes game, and will play in the quarterfinals on Friday, Nov. 7.
