Tigerville, SC – The North Greenville University women’s soccer program evened up its season record with a 3-1 victory over Brevard College in Pepsi Stadium on Saturday night.
“I am so proud of my team,” said head coach Rachel Baer. “I told them before the game that they were ready to play and I trusted they would take care of business and they did just that.”
The Crusaders gained the lead with a goal from redshirt freshman Lindsay Tuten in the 16th minute of action to give North Greenville the 1-0 lead, before freshman Courtney Etheridge netted her first career goal in the 49th minute for a two-goal lead.
Tuten recorded her second goal of the game in the 55th minute of action to put the Crusaders ahead by three until Brevard scored a late goal in the 88th minute to make the final score 3-1 in favor of North Greenville.
North Greenville totaled seven shots in the game compared to just four by the Tornados as junior Taylor Kelley recorded three saves in her first game of the season.
“This was a game I was able to sit back and watch while my girls coached themselves to success on the field,” Baer commented. “Brevard has had a good run at the start of their season and we knew a victory tonight would give us great momentum as we head toward conference play next week.”
The Crusaders (2-2, 0-0 Conference Carolinas) will host Mars Hill College on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. in Pepsi Stadium before beginning Conference Carolinas play next weekend.
