Coach Quarandillo says…

"We made our mistakes, but honestly we didn't play that badly.  We know we are rebuilding, and with all five freshman and the rest sophomores out there tonight, we are young and have no reason to hang our heads.  We will simply keep moving forward and remain focused on our future."


How It Happened

North Greenville attacked first, claiming the first goal of the game on a shot from in the box by Zach Baker.  The Warriors countered as Jose Rangel took a shot on the goal, but Noah Kendrick claimed the ball to keep Southern Wesleyan off the board.  Despite shots by Noah Sims, North Greenville struck again on a goal by Gareth Greene to extend their lead to 2-0.  North Greenville continued to pressure with several more shots, but the Warriors stayed strong on the back line.  The Crusaders led the way 3-0 at the half.

The Crusaders jumped out in the second half with several shots on goal, but Will Hughes and the Warriors defense saved the ball from the net.  The Warriors countered as Noah Sims drove a ball toward the net, but it deflected off of the cross bar.  Southern Wesleyan continued to hold strong with shots by Sims and Ben Baker.  North Greenville continued the attack, extending their lead to 4-0 on Gareth Greene's second goal of the game.  Despite several more attacks by Baker and Alex Miner, the Warriors fell to the Crusaders in a 5-0 final score.

Southern Wesleyan will close out the season on the road as they travel to Due West, SC to take on the Erskine College Flying Fleet.
