Webster records eight saves in conference defeat

Harrogate, Tenn. - Jamie Bundy drilled in her first goal of the season and Hannah Graham slipped a shot past the keeper for the Tornados, but Sarah Taylor had two goals and an assist on the afternoon for Lincoln Memorial as the Tornados fell to the Railsplitters in South Atlantic Conference action on Saturday afternoon, 5-2.

Bundy struck first for Brevard (2-6, 3-0 SAC) as the sophomore from Platte City, Mo. drilled a free kick into the back of the net from 35 yards out over LMU (4-3, 1-1 SAC) goalkeeper Kayla Hanson’s fingertips to put the Tornados on the board at the 7:30 mark in the first half.

The Railsplitters tied the match up at the 36:20 mark, as Taylor corralled the rebound from Rachel Vienneau’s shot off the crossbar and placed in the goal to knot the match up at one apiece.

Less than two minutes later, Lincoln Memorial scored on a free kick of their own as Nicole McKinney served the ball into the box, past a diving Brittany Webster into the back of the net from 30 yards out at the 37:36 mark to give the Railsplitters the 2-1 advantage heading into the half.

Graham evened the score up five minutes into the second half as the junior midfielder from Mooresville, N.C. received the long pass from Caitlin Hubbard inside the box and nudged the ball into the goal at the 50 minute mark to tie the match up at two apiece.

The Railsplitters took control of the match in a six minute span from the 69 minute mark to the 75 minute mark in the second half as Savannah Pitt, Taylor and Lindsay Anderson all placed goals in the net to put Lincoln Memorial up 5-2, and though Bundy, Hubbard and Chelsea Freeman all were able to get off shots, none were able to find their mark as Brevard fell to Lincoln Memorial, 5-2.

Brevard remains in South Atlantic Conference play as they travel to Greeneville, Tenn. to take on Tusculum College on Wednesday, September 28th. Kickoff between the Tornados and the Pioneers is set for 5 p.m.
