KUFUOR TALLIES SIXTH GOAL IN WOLVES LOSS TO NO. 10 ANDERSON

ANDERSON, S.C. – Kofi Kufuor (Accra, Ghana) scored his sixth goal of the season Wednesday afternoon as the Newberry Wolves were defeated 4-1 by the No. 10 Anderson Trojans.

Anderson (12-2, 7-0 South Atlantic Conference) got the scoring going in the 17th minute when Lasse Sohrweide scored from about 10 yards out. Newberry (5-10, 1-6 SAC) held the Trojans to one goal in the first half, but about 10 minutes into the second half Sohrweide netted his second goal of the match.

Newberry countered in the 58th minute when Kufuor netted his team high sixth goal of the season. Kufuor’s goal is 17th-best single season tally in Newberry College history and moves the Ghanaian to No. 19 in the record books for career goals.

Sohrweide completed the hat trick in the 63rd minute and added an assist to his stat line in the 76th minute on a James Moseley goal.

Newberry goalkeeper Joel Johnson (Sangre Grande, Trinidad & Tobago) recorded five saves on the afternoon.

The Wolves return to action Saturday morning at 11 a.m. when they play host to conference foe Brevard College.
