Harrogate, Tenn.- The Lincoln Memorial Railsplitters proved to be too much for the Brevard men's soccer team, defeating the Tornados 5-1 in South Atlantic Conference play on Saturday afternoon.
Lincoln Memorial's Mario Pinto recorded a hat trick for the second consecutive game, scoring against the Tornados at 39:35, 46:18, and 54:43.
Diego Deschamp got the Railsplitters on the board at 23:51 on a header off of a long free kick by Pinto. Following Pinto's three goals, Deschamp capped LMU's scoring by punching in the deflection of a save by BC keeper Jack Shaw at 74:24.
Sophomore Marcelo Betcer scored Brevard's lone goal at 75:16, sending home a rebound of his own shot after it was deflected in the box by LMU keeper Ryan Beckner. The Tornados put six shots on goal in the contest.
