Bearcats slip past Wolves 5-4 in overtime

GREENWOOD - Looking to nab back-to-back wins for the first time since the 2008 season, the Newberry College men's soccer team failed to hang on in overtime as they fell to Lander University 5-4 Wednesday night.

Lander (2-2) forward Fred Parker sent the winning shot over Newberry (1-3-1) goalie Joel Johnson (Sangre Grande, Trinidad & Tobago) from 25 yards out with just over two minutes remaining in the first overtime period to put the Wolves away.

Sophomore Adrian Ochoa (East Point, Ga.) scored his first of two goals during the game in the fourth minute to give Newberry an early lead. The Bearcats struck back with a Zach Acree goal seconds before halftime to tie the game at 1.

Newberry then scored three straight goals, Ochoa's second in the 45th minute, Joao Delgado's (Atlanta, Ga.) first career goal in the 69th minute on a penalty kick and Stephen Harvey's (Apopka, Fla.) first goal for the Wolves in the 70th to put Newberry up, 4-1.

Craig Hughes then scored back-to-back goals in under eight minutes for the Bearcats to put them within striking distance and in the 86th minute, Jamie Davison snuck in the tying goal on a free kick to send the game into overtime where Parker knocked in the game winner.

The Wolves took a total of 12 shots during the matchup, seven of which were on goal while Lander got off 28 shots and 20 on goal.

Harvey took four shots for Newberry with Ochoa not far behind with three.

Johnson saved a total of 15 shots, playing the full 98 minutes in front of the net for the Wolves.

Newberry will be back on the pitch this Saturday as they return home to take on South Atlantic Conference opponent Lincoln Memorial (3-0) at 4 p.m.
