Bulldogs Edge Tornados In Pair Of Close Soccer Matches – Brevard NC


October 10, 2016

The Brevard Men’s Soccer Team (6-5-1, 2-4 SAC) lost 1-0 to the current number six team in the nation, Wingate, (9-0, 7-0 SAC) on Homecoming weekend.

The Tornados played extremely well as they held the Bulldogs to only one goal during the match. Wingate’s lone goal would come in the first half, off a free kick from the left side of the field, about 20 yards back, by Jon Ander.

Brevard had a great opportunity to score with six minutes left in the game as senior, Ryan McPhillips would receive a pass from across the field, and send a shot that just missed to the lower, right corner of the goal.

The Bulldogs would outshoot Brevard 17-7 for the night. Ander would lead the team as he took seven shots with three of them being on-goal.

The Tornados were led by Junior midfielder, Gabriel Garcia who would finish the day with three shots.

Garcia, McPhillips, and Rhem Stubbs would each attempt a shot on goal.

Before the game, the brand new turf field was dedicated.

During the ceremony, senior captain, Winston Haddock shared his appreciation for the field being completed during his senior season, and what the new field means to the team.

The Tornados will travel to Greeneville, Tenn. for their next conference match as they take on the No. 10 team in the country, Tusculum, Wednesday Oct. 12, beginning at 7:30 pm.

Women Fall 1-0

In Double OT

It took 109 minutes for either team to score in tonight’s women’s match as Brevard (5-8-1, 0-7 SAC) fell to Wingate (7-3-1, 5-2 SAC) 1-0 on Saturday.

It was a heart-breaking loss for the Tornados as they fought the entire game.

Just as the second over-time was about to expire, Wingate’s Kimmi Moore would get the ball off of a deflection and tap the ball into the goal to end the match for her team leading sixth goal of the year.

Brevard’s defense stepped up big in the contest as they held off attacking Bulldogs.

Offensively, Wingate would out-shoot Brevard 33-14 with nine of those shots being on goal.

Moore led the Bulldogs with seven shots on the day, and recorded the only goal of the match.

The Tornados’ offense was led by junior, Sydney Alencewicz who finished the day with five shots, three of those being on-goal.

Anita Maryskova would add three shots for the Tornados. Kathleen Gant and Ashley Hughes would finish the day with a pair of shots.

Freshman goal keeper, Laurel Neuzil held off the Bulldogs as she had eight saves on the day, giving up the final goal in the last minute of double over-time.

Brevard will look to snap their losing streak as they travel to Spartanburg, S.C. Tuesday, Oct. 11 as they take on Converse for a non-conference game.
