Tigerville, SC – The Lady Crusader soccer team was halted in its attempt to win its second Conference Carolinas match as Belmont Abbey routed North Greenville 4-2 on Saturday night in Pepsi Stadium.
Belmont scored the game’s first goal in the 36th minute to gain the early 1-0 advantage.
North Greenville scored its first goal just minutes later in the 38th minute after a goal by Brooke Domingo, her second of the season.
Belmont scored again in the 52nd minute before the Lady Crusaders tied the game once again after Noelle Beasley crossed a ball into the box and Laney McGarity finished with a header for her second goal of the season in the 56th minute.
Belmont scored two goals in the closing minutes to finish the game and secure the victory on the road.
“Belmont Abbey is one of the top teams in our conference,” said head coach Jesse McCormick. “Hopefully today’s performance will give the girls confidence that they can compete with any team we are matched up against.”
North Greenville (2-5, 1-3 in conference) will continue its three-game homestand with a match against Conference Carolinas opponent Erskine on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 5 p.m. in Tigerville.
