October 9, 2017



A day after losing to Greensboro, Brevard men's soccer gets back on track by beating William Peace 4-2 Sunday afternoon.

The first half saw offensive fireworks from both teams, as the two teams combined for five goals in the first 45 minutes.

However, Brevard played a solid defensive performance in the second half to shut out William Peace and preserve the victory.

Brock Tuttle was the high-point man with two goals on the match, with Jesse Omezi and Jorge Jiminez each scoring a goal to contribute to the scoring for the Tornados.

Omezi began the scoring in the 12th minute, as he drove up the right side of the field and buried the shot from inside the box to score his fifth goal of the season.

In the 16th minute, Jorge Jimenez scored off a deflected ball from a Pacer defender inside the box to make the score 2-0.

William Peace answered in the 20th minute, as Chris Deleon scored his 10th goal of the season to cut the deficit in half.

Two minutes later, the Pacers tied the match as Kevin Amaya found the back of the net for his first goal of the year.

In the 28th minute, Tuttle broke the tie when he drilled a shot from inside the box off another deflected ball.

Both teams improved their defensive play in the second half, as Brevard and Williams Peace combined for just eight shots in the final 45 minutes of the match.

The last goal of the match came in the 86th minute, as Tuttle scored off an assist from Xavier Mariduena for his fourth goal of the season.

Brevard goalkeeper Eric Lenhart recorded his first victory of the season, as he tallied five saves while only allowing two goals on the match.

The Tornados will return to action Oct. 13 on the road against LaGrange.

Fall To Greensboro 3-1 On Saturday

Brevard men’s soccer could not rebound from their loss last Tuesday night, as they fell to Greensboro 3-1.

The Tornados were limited to only one shot the entire match, which ended up being the lone goal for Brevard on the day.

Greensboro began the scoring in the 20th minute, as Jared Heller found the back of the net on an assist from Darli Mihindou.

In the second half, the Pride scored in the 63rd minute off a goal from Cole Watkins to increase the Greensboro lead to two. Less than a minute later, Brock Tuttle buried a shot for Brevard to cut the lead in half.

In the 84th minute Jordy Briceno gave Greensboro a two goal advantage once again off an assist from Heller.
