Tornados Fall to Newberry, 2-0, in SAC playSeptember 24, 2014
BREVARD, N.C. – The Brevard College women’s soccer team fell to the Newberry College Wolves, 2-0, on Wednesday afternoon at Brevard Soccer Field in South Atlantic Conference action (SAC). The Tornados fall to 2-5 overall and 0-3 in the SAC, while the Wolves improve to 4-1-1 and 2-1.
Tornado goalkeeper Jocelyn Springer stopped seven Wolves shots in the game. Sydney Alencewicz totaled two shots, one of which landed on goal and the Tornados had five other players who registered a shot a piece.
The Wolves received a goal from Gabrielle Brodie and Brayden Miller. Alexis Carrillo turned away one shot in net for Newberry, which outshot Brevard 19-7 and 14-2 in the first half.
Newberry came out firing in the first half, launching four shots, one of which was saved by Springer, in the first 23 minutes of the game before Brodie gave her team a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute. Guadalupe Magana delivered a pass into the middle of the box and Brodie beat Springer to the near post.
On a free kick attempt for Brevard from about 30 yards out at 26:45, Alencewiczs’ shot sailed just left of the net, missing an opportunity to even the score. Newberry tacked onto its lead at 39:39 on a goal by Miller. After receiving a pass by Rachel Jonas down the near side of the field, Miller took a left-footed shot near the sidelines that ended up in the far corner, just out of the reach of Springer, to give the Wolves a 2-0 advantage.
The Tornados looked to get on the board early in the second
half as Katherine Nickels went one-on-one down the field in the 50th minute with
a Newberry defender. While on the run, she lifted her shot just over the net
from 18 yards away. Following a corner kick at 54:30, Anita Maryskova took a
shot from close range that went just wide of the net for Brevard. The Tornados,
however, were unable to get any offense together for the remainder of the game
and could not break the shutout.
Brevard returns to action on Saturday when it hosts Carson Newman at 1:30 p.m. at Brevard Soccer Field in conference play.
