NEWBERRY - Rachel Dillon let loose her 28th goal of the season with just 42 seconds left to play as Newberry (4-4) went on to defeat Nyack (0-4) by a final of 15-14 on Thursday afternoon. 

 

In a game that held 10 lead changes and nine ties, the Wolves got the last laugh despite being outshot 33-21 in the 60 minutes. The Warriors grabbed the lead four different times in the second half but Newberry answered the call to keep the game close before Naomi Killian and Dillon finished with the final two goals to seal the win.

 

Dillon, a sophomore out of Chesapeake Beach, Md., notched a career-high with seven goals, proving efficient on the field connecting on all seven of her shots. Her 28 goals this season leads the South Atlantic Conference. Dillon has already surpassed her goal total from 2016 in just eight games. 

 

The Wolves opened up the game with three straight goals before the Warriors responded with four of their own. Newberry fought back to gain the 6-5 advantage heading into the break on a goal from Maddie Campbell with 1:38 remaining in the first period.

 

Victoria Silvers of Nyack tallied eight goals on the afternoon and was given the helper on three other Warriors goals.

 

Killian netted three goals for the Wolves including the game-tying goal with six minutes remaining.

 

Alexis Khaler added a season-high four points on two goals and two assists

 

Senior Olivia Knight leads the team with 15 assists on the year, after a three-assist performance on Thursday. 

 

South Atlantic Conference saves leader Brandy Bowman continued her stellar season between the pipes stopping 15 shots. Bowman is four short of hitting the century mark for the season, sitting 34 saves ahead of the next closest goalkeeper in the conference.

 

Newberry held a 20-11 advantage over Nyack on draw controls.

 

The Wolves return to Setzler Field this Saturday for conference opponent Tusculum. Game time is set for 3:00 p.m.
