NEWBERRY - Newberry College fell to No. 25 Carson-Newman College in overtime, 2-1, in South Atlantic Conference men's soccer action Saturday afternoon. The Indians fall to 2-5 in the SAC with the loss.
Debola Ogunseye scored his team leading 17th goal of the season for Newberry in the defeat.
The Indians came out strong at the beginning of the game and they were rewarded as they took the lead in just the 5th minute of play. Kwame Gyamfi carried the ball deep into the Eagles Territory before crossing the ball to a streaking Ogunseye who received it inside the six yard box and deposited into the back of the net.
Newberry had numerous chances to extend its lead, including a shot by Gyamfi that hit off the crossbar, but the team headed into halftime with the score at 1-0.
The second half was a back and forth affair, with both sides getting solid looks at the net. But neither side could get a ball across until the 72nd minute when Alessandro Oliveira connected on a shot from the left edge of the penalty area.
With the game still tied at 1 at the end of regulation the two teams headed into extra time.
Carson-Newman won the game on a goal in the 96th minute. Joseph Johns recovered a loose ball in the six-yard box and fired a point blank shot past goalie Will Dieterich for the win.
With his goal, Ogunseye tied Rick Ladimir for the second most goals in a single season in Newberry history.
The Indians finish their regular season with a record of 9-9-0, including a 2-5-0 record in conference play. Newberry finishes the year sixth in the SAC with six points and will travel to Wingate Tuesday, October 30, to play its first round game in the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament.
