HARTSVILLE, S.C. -- Aleksandar Drobac recorded a career-high 10 saves and took a shutout into the second half, but Coker (S.C.) College scored twice in a five-minute span and handed Mount Olive College a 4-0 defeat on Wednesday evening.

Drobac's 10 saves marked the Trojans' first double-digit performance since current teammate Kyle Lavender performed the feat two years ago. Lavender recorded 12 saves in 100 minutes in an overtime match against Lees-McRae on Oct. 15, 2011.

South Atlantic Conference member Coker (3-2-2) ended Drobac's bid for his first collegiate shutout just over two minutes into the second half when Daniel Jackson scored the first of his three goals. Jackson scored again in the 53rd minute to extend Coker's lead to 2-0, and completed his hat trick in the 71st minute.

The Cobras added a goal in the 84th minute.

MOC (0-7-0 overall) resumes Conference Carolinas play Saturday and joins in the fight against cancer during a match against in-state league foe Pfeiffer University. Kickoff is 4 p.m. at Amon Field.

Proceeds from all of Saturday's home contests -- men's and women's soccer, women's volleyball and softball -- will benefit Southeastern Cancer Care, a Goldsboro-based organization that provides care and resources for cancer patients in eastern North Carolina.
