Men's Soccer drops 5-0 decision at Newberry

NEWBERRY, SC -- An early goal by Debola Ogunseye (Lagos, NIGERIA) proved to be the game-winner as Newberry defeated visiting Catawba 5-0 in South Atlantic Conference men's soccer action on Wednesday afternoon at Setzler Field.

 Newberry improves to 7-4 overall and 3-1 in the SAC, earning its first-ever win over Catawba, who fell to 8-5 and 2-3. Ogunseye had a hand in all but one of the Newberry goals, scoring three and assisting on another. Bryan Linn (Safety Harbor, FL) and Will Dieterich (Tampa, FL) combined for the shutout at goalkeeper. Scott Busbee (Columbia, SC) fed Ogunseye on a pass to the left channel in the eighth minute to open the scoring. Ogunseye beat Catawba goalkeeper Tyler Held (Virginia Beach, VA) low and to the left, giving him his ninth goal of the season.

Brandon Baker (Conway, SC) scored the second goal of the game on a volley near the back post on a free kick from Jeff Bell (North Augusta, SC) in the 50th minute. Ogunseye tacked on two more goals in the 59th and 63rd minutes, for his tenth and eleventh of the season, with Jeff Hinshaw (Athens, TN) assisting in the 63rd.

Ben Mottel (North Augusta, SC) closed out the scoring in the 88th minute, heading in a corner kick by Ogunseye that was flicked on by Philip Tanner (New Hope, SC). “You have to give Newberry all the credit,” said Catawba Coach Craig Turnbull. “They played a very solid game and with a style suited to win and are a good up and coming team. I am mystified at our performance. Our youth and inexperience showed today.”
