CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Newberry College men’s soccer team suffered a tough 2-1 loss at the hands of Queens University of Charlotte Royals on Sunday afternoon.
Newberry (4-5-1, 2-2-1) held an advantage on the stat sheet as they outshot Queens (3-7, 3-2) 18-14 over the course of the game as well as having 10 corner kicks to their seven. Freshman Sterling Wendt (Alpharetta, Ga.) scored his second goal of the season 19 minutes into the game.
Newberry couldn’t hold the Royals off as they equalized 10 minutes later and then scored the game winner at the 65:53 mark.
Junior Lucas Ferreira (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) posted a team and season-high 10 shots for the Wolves. Senior goalkeeper Nick Lucido (Lakeland, Fla.) made three saves between the posts. Three other Newberry players posted two shots on goal in sophomore Mike McPeak (Chapel Hill, N.C.), freshman Davis Bryan (Dacula, Ga.) and Wendt.
Wendt found the back of the net to put the Wolves up 1-0 just a shade over 19 minutes into the contest, he collected a Wolves shot that had rebounded off a defender and beat Queens goalkeeper Montrell Morgan.
The Royals Philip Makhlouf put the teams back on level ground after his give and go passing down the sideline with teammate Marc-Kevin Schwenk made the score 1-1 29:53 into the game.
After back-and-forth play from both teams didn’t produce many great chances, the Royals Corey Brown put them up for good after fielding a corner kick that bounced through the box and beating Lucido for the go-ahead with 25 minutes left to play.
The Wolves couldn’t heat back up after their quick start and despite having a couple of corners couldn’t muster up enough to bring home a point.
Newberry will return home to play SAC foe Anderson on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at the Smith Road Complex as the second game of a double header with the women.
