Men's Soccer goes to third SAC final in four years on Dumond's 65th minute tally

NEWBERRY, SC Freshman Jason Dumond (Coppell, TX) lofted a shot over Newberry freshman keeper Tim Seibert (Harrisburg, NC) in the 65th minute to break a two-all tie as third-seeded Catawba moved past #7-seed Newberry in the second semifinal of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men's Soccer Tournament, hosted by Newberry at the Newberry College Soccer Complex Saturday afternoon. Catawba, now 13-5-1, advances on to play against top-seeded Carson-Newman at 1 p.m. for Sunday's final. The Eagles defeated Catawba 3-2 back on October 11 in the regular season match-up between the two teams. Newberry ends its ason at 9-8-3. Newberry got on the board first at home on a goal by forward Troy Pinckney (Mt. Pleasant, SC), as he put his fourth goal of the season past keeper Carl McMahon (Sydney, AUSTRALIA) on a cross from midfielder Brandon Cockrell (Mauldin, SC) at the 27:17 mark. Catawba then got a pair of goals before the half ended from forward Ross Hudgins (Poquoson, VA). The first was a header that came 68 seconds after the Newberry score on a cross from Felipe Rubio (Miami, FL). Hudgins' second goal was courtesy of a Dumond cross from the right side to a touch to the far post. Newberry tied the match on the foot of Jeffrey Taylor (Sumter, SC). The freshman scored Newberry's first-ever tournament goal on Tuesday and chipped one past McMahon to knot the game at two with just under 40 minutes to play. Dumond's game-winner was unassisted. Catawba out shot Newberry 24-10, including an 11-3 margin in the second half. Seibert ended with eight saves, while McMahon saved two shots. Newberry finishes with the program's first-ever winning season and first appearance in the tournament semifinals. Catawba looks for its third tournament crown (1990, 2001), while Carson-Newman tries to track down its first on Sunday. #7 NEWBERRY (9-8-3) 1 1 - 2 #3 CATAWBA (13-51) 2 1 - 3 SCORING SUMMARY N - 27:17 Troy Pinckney (4) (Brandon Cockrell) C - 28:25 Ross Hudgins (2) (Felipe Rubio) C - 42:39 Ro.
