MOUNT OLIVE, N.C. – Newberry men’s soccer team picked up a big result on the road as they downed the Mount Olive Trojans (2-5-2) by the score of 2-1.
Back at full health, the Wolves (4-3-0, 2-0-1) were led by junior forward Lucas Ferriera (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) who scored the second goal as well as adding an assist on the first. Sophomore Tomas Garcia (Vina del Mar, Chile) was on the receiving end of the assist as he scored the opening goal for Newberry.
It only took 15:57 to run off the clock before the breakthrough occurred on a free kick. Ferreria lined it up about 40 yards out from goal and the left footer hit an incredible shot as it curved over the wall and snuck just inside of the far post past an outstretched Mount Olive goalkeeper. It marked his second goal of the season off of a free kick.
In the 30th minute Newberry had a pair of back to back corner kick opportunities and needed both to double the lead. Ferriera took the corner and played a ball in and Tomas Garcia made a run and got on the end of it to finish it in the back of the net and put the Wolves up 2-0.
Mount Olive got a goal back late in the game in the 89th minute as Azzam Dhamra took a shot from outside of the box past a diving Nick Lucido (Lakeland, Fla.)
That goal was the only blemish for Lucido who had a good day in goal as he made seven saves for the Wolves. Mount Olive outshot Newberry 12-10 in total shots as well as shots on goal in which they held an 8-4 edge.
Newberry was led by Ferreria, along with Billy Decker (Eagle River, Alaska) and Jalin Butler (Columbia, S.C.) who had two shots a piece.
The Wolves will be back in action on Thursday as they travel to Brevard for a 4 p.m. matchup.
