Newberry, S.C. - Althea Dunn and Carolyn Anderson both recorded unassisted goals to pace the Brevard attack on Saturday afternoon against the Newberry Wolves, but Mary Stanton’s two first half scores led a NC attack as the Tornados fell in conference action, 4-2.
Newberry (9-6, 4-4 SAC) recorded three shots in the first seven minutes with Brevard (2-13, 0-8 SAC) goalkeeper Brittany Webster recording a save before Stanton found the back of the net for the first time, collecting a loose ball in front of the goal and targeting the back of the net at the 7:34 mark to give the hosts the 1-0 advantage.
Stanton challenged the Tornados defense six minutes later with Webster again making a spectacular save at the 13:11 mark. However, Stanton would not be denied, collecting the pass from Brayden Miller inside the box and chipping it up into the top of the net from eight yards out to put Newberry up 2-0.
Bailey Varley and Chelsea Freeman challenged the Newberry defense in the half, but goalkeeper Megan Hrenchir proved up to the task to keep the Tornados off the scoreboard.
Miller recorded a goal at the 34:45 mark to put the Wolves up 3-0, collecting the corner kick from Megan Douglas and finished off the shot in the scramble for the ball.
Dunn answered just before the halftime break, recording her second career collegiate goal, placing her shot over the keeper at the 42:56 mark to send the teams into halftime with the score 3-1.
Anderson wasted little time cutting the lead back to within one as she lofted a shot over the goalkeeper from just inside the 18 yard mark with 46:48 on the clock in the second half to put the score at 3-2.
Dunn nearly tied the match up five minutes later, but her shot cleared the crossbar and Newberry took advantage on their next possession as Jesse Langdon finished off a rebound from Stanton and put it in the back of the net at the 52:48 mark as the Wolves went up 4-2 after the insurance goal.
Brevard had one final opportunity to cut into the lead, but Varley’s offering was blocked at the 86:55 mark as the Tornados fell to Newberry, 4-2.
Brevard remains on the road in South Carolina as they make the trip to Spartanburg, S.C. to take on Converse College on Wednesday, October 26th. Kickoff between the Tornados and the Valkyries is set for 7 p.m.
