Crusaders Lose To Limestone In First Round

Gaffney, SC – The North Greenville University men’s soccer team was downed 6-0 by Limestone College on Tuesday afternoon in the first round of the Conference Carolinas Tournament.

The game got off to a rocky start early for North Greenville when Limestone scored its first goal just 28 seconds into the contest, as forward Jack Bailey received a through ball from midfielder Daniel Mohsen and put the shot into the back of the net.

After the lone first half goal, the Saints came out strong in the second half and the game became lopsided in favor of Limestone as four different players scored a goal.

Limestone scored goals in the 53rd, 58th, 74th, 76th and 83rd minutes of play as the Crusader defense was unable to stop the Saints’ potent offensive attack.

Keeper Justen Braddock recorded 10 saves in the game as Limestone fired 16 shots on goal compared to just 7 by North Greenville.

The Crusaders end the 2011 season with a 8-8 record overall and a 6-5 record in conference, good enough to finish in fifth place in the Conference Carolinas’ standings.
