Appalachian State Men's Soccer Dominates USC-Upstate

Written by

Appalachian State University men’s soccer earned its third win of the season in dominating fashion, 3-1 over USC Upstate on Saturday evening.

“I’m happy with how we worked in the second half,” said Matt Nelson. “We created chances in the first half and could not capitalize. We gave another soft goal up on a set piece, but this time we found a way back into the game and created enough opportunities to win it. They worked extremely hard and I’m proud of them to find a way to get this result.”

The Mountaineers (3-4-1) found themselves down 1-0 toward the end of the first half in the 38th minute when Taylor Scalera headed in a ball from Calon Minors.

That’s where the momentum stopped for the Spartans. After coming out of the half down 1-0, the Mountaineers tied it at 1-1 when Stanley Broaden (Wilmington, N.C./Eugene Ashley) netted his fourth goal of the season in the 49th minute off of a cross from Donovan Japp (Oakridge, N.C./Northwest Guilford) into the box.

Broaden would tally his fourth career multi-goal game on an unassisted goal to put the Apps up 2-1 in the 57th minute. The game-winning goal for Broaden was the fifth of his career.

To put the game away for good in the 79th minute, sophomore Keegan Tanaka (Austin, Texas/James Bowie) netted his first career goal wearing the Black and Gold. Freshman Austin Stamey (Arden, N.C./TC Roberson) assisted on the goal inside the box and Tanaka put a good left foot on it to score.

Paul West (Apex, N.C./Apex) collected four saves in the contest to earn the win. Appalachian led in shots 17-11 and corner kicks 8-3. Broaden and Ben Steen (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) led the Apps in shots with three a piece.

The Mountaineers will return to action on Tuesday, Sept. 30 when they travel to Durham, N.C. for a showdown with Atlantic Coast Conference member, Duke. Kick off is slated for 7 p.m.

The No. 6 Lenoir-Rhyne Football Team (4-0, 2-0) scored the game’s last 38 points en route to a 47-9 victory over Tusculum (1-3, 0-1) Saturday night in a South Atlantic Conference game at Moretz Stadium.

Lenoir-Rhyne senior fullback Chris Robinson (Newnan, Ga.) rushed for a career-high 192 yards and three touchdowns as the Bears rolled up a season-high 622 yards of total offense in the win.

The game was deadlocked at 9-9 until redshirt freshman reserve quarterback Evin Sims (Greenwood, S.C.) gave the Bears the lead for good with a one-yard touchdown run with 9:02 left in the second quarter.

The Bears led 19-9 at halftime but scored 28 points after intermission and held the Pioneers scoreless in the second half en route to the victory.

Lenoir-Rhyne broke the game open when senior quarterback Miles Freeman (Sacramento, Calif.) found sophomore wide receiver Victor Brannan (Powder Springs, Ga.) for an 82-yard touchdown reception late in the third quarter for a 26-9 advantage.

The Bears added 21 points in the fourth quarter, highlighted by two touchdown runs from Robinson, and matched their best start in 15 years.

Freeman finished with 204 yards of total offense – 113 yards passing and 91 yards rushing – while Lenoir-Rhyne’s defense registered four sacks in the win. Senior linebacker Tanner Botts (Lawrenceville, Ga.) and senior defensive back O’neil Blake (Kissimmee, Fla.) added 11 tackles to lead the Bears.

For Tusculum, quarterback Malcolm Pendergrass (Royal Palm Beach, Fla.) threw for 207 yards while Ken Funnye (Georgetown, S.C.) added 107 yards receiving on seven catches in the losing effort.

Lenoir-Rhyne hits the road again to face Brevard next Saturday in a league game in Brevard, N.C., beginning at 4:15 p.m.

App State Field Hockey Falls at Home to W&M

Written by

Two late goals was not enough for Appalachian State University field hockey (2-8, 0-1 NorPac) dropping an 8-4 match to William and Mary on Friday at the Brandon and Erica M Adcock Field at Appalachian Field Hockey Stadium.

The last six minutes of the match was all Appalachian. Time ran short for the Mountaineers as senior Dana Wetmore (Bethlehem, Pa./Freedom) scored the last two goals in regulation to close the match at 8-4.

Appalachian scored first and early in the match. Freshman Amber Prince (Sinking Springs, Pa./Conrad Weiser) scored her second goal on the season after the Mountaineers was awarded a corner. Junior Hanna French (Dayton, Ohio/Oakwood) took the corner that was passed to Wetmore. Wetmore took the initial shot but was saved by the goalie and Prince was there to score off the rebound and give the Mountaineers a 1-0 lead.

William and Mary (2-8, 0-0 CAA) scored the next three goals, two that were deflected off the goalie and one that was almost saved by an Appalachian defender but bounced off the stick and went through the net. The Tribe led 3-1.

After a timely steal by sophomore Marissa O’Brien (Yorktown, Va./Tabb) that was passed to a sprinting Prince, senior Jordyn Warren (Allentown, PA./William Allen) received the pass on a fast break, showcased her speed and beat the defender down the right side to pull within one and make the score 3-2 going into halftime.

The Tribe scored right before the half after a second shot attempt. Brittany Hopkins whiffed the first shot, but collected herself and found the net, After the half, William and Mary found chance after chance to score, reeling off three scores to give them an 8-2 lead but the Mountaineers did not back down applying pressure and scoring the final two goals of the match.

Appalachian recorded eight shots in the game in which five were on goal. Three of the four goals were assisted on. Goalkeeper Cristina Ceppi (Vienna, Va./James Madsion) recorded the loss in the net moving her to 2-8 on the year but she added to her save total of the year with two in the game. Senior Laura Malinoski (Easthampton, N.J./Rancocas Valley Regional) recorded a defensive save helping Ceppi in the back line for her first defensive save of the season.

Wetmore led the charge for the Mountaineers scoring two goals and added an assist. Prince added one goal and an assist while Hanna French had two assists.

The Mountaineers will return to action on Sunday at noon as they take on the visiting Hawks of Saint Joseph’s at Adcock Field.
