NEWBERRY - The Newberry men's soccer team took to the pitch at the Smith Road Complex for the first home soccer game in school history to be played at a soccer specific facility, as the Wolves were downed by the No. 15 Lander Bearcats 6-0.
The Wolves (0-3) saw an early scoring chance as a long throw from freshman Jalin Butler (Columbia, S.C.) found the head of senior Jay Barajas (Atlanta, Ga.). Barajas' fourth minute attempt to redirect the ball came up empty handed as the ball sailed over the crossbar.
Trailing 2-0, the Wolves saw another strong scoring opportunity turned away as freshman Graham Jermstad (Irmo, S.C.) looked to add to his goal total by lining up over a free kick in the 41st minute. The Wolves' leading scorer sent a curling free kick to the near post, but saw it saved by Lander (2-0) keeper Barrett Nielsen.
The second half saw Lander continue to attack the goal, netting a pair of goals in the opening 20 minutes of the period. It was in the 66th minute that Newberry again saw a scoring opportunity as a through ball found senior Brady Francis (Aiken, S.C.) one-on-one with Nielsen. Francis, like his teammates before him, saw his shot turned away by Nielsen.
A 70th minute goal for Lander, followed by a 90th minute goal from the penalty spot, saw the Bearcats leave the Smith Road Complex with a 6-0 victory.
Barajas led the Wolves with three shots, while Jermstad placed two shots on frame.
The Wolves return to the Smith Road Complex on Saturday with the first match of the South Atlantic Conference schedule set to kickoff at 4 p.m. against the Mars Hill Lions.
