NEWBERRY – The Newberry College men’s soccer team fell at home to the defending national semifinalist Carson-Newman Eagles, 7-3.
Lucas Ferreira (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) converted a penalty kick and Nick Remobwski (Mooresville, N.C.) as well as Sam Lacey (Adelaide, SA, Australia) all scored for the Wolves (4-7-1, 2-4-1) who had their best offensive output of the season with a high of three goals. For Lacey and Rembowski, they both scored their first goals of the season.
Newberry only had three shots on goal but were efficient as they converted all three of them.
Carson-Newman (5-4-1, 4-1-2) opened the scoring 14:39 into the game off a corner kick. Lucas Siquera lofted one in and James Ward was left unmarked to head it home. Newberry was then whistled for a penalty kick shortly after and Siquera converted for the Eagles to make it 2-0.
Just 39 seconds later, the Eagles took the ball back down the field and after the initial header bounced off the cross bar, Marius Staalby tapped it in to make it 3-0 with only 22:41 having gone by.
Newberry wouldn’t go down easy though as they were rewarded with a penalty kick themselves after a great buildup play pushed the Eagles back into their own box before they committed a hand ball. Ferreira calmly stepped up and placed the ball into the corner to make it 3-1 going into halftime.
The Wolves would turn it into a game coming out of halftime as Rembowski hit a side footed volley over the keeper and into the back of the net. It marked the first goal of the season for him and shifted the momentum in their favor.
Freshman Paul Marie (Saint-Aubin-de-bois, France) made a nice run all the way down field and had a chance to score before it was poked away at the last minute. The Eagles turned a quick counter attack into a goal as Marius Staalby headed the ball at goal and it bounced before being finished Alex Naric to make it 4-2.
At the 63:31 mark the Eagles put the game out of reach as they laid the ball off and Nico Noll finished to push it to 5-2. Robert Wagner would put a shot it in the 80th minute and Noll would finish off the scoring in the 86th and put them up 7-2.
Newberry got one back late with just over a minute to play as senior Luis Thompson (Evans, Ga.) fed the ball to Sam Lacey who dribbled in and finished low, far post in a textbook fashion and leave the game at the final score of 7-3.
Newberry will be at home again on Tuesday at the Smith Road Complex to face Chowan at 3 p.m.
