DANVILLE, VA. – The Brevard College Men's Soccer team (3-8-0, 2-5-0) won its second straight game with a closely fought 2-1 road victory over host Averett (2-9-1, 0-5-1) on Saturday afternoon. The win comes on the heels of a neutral site win over conference foe Berea earlier this week.
BC's Brock Tuttle scored both of Brevard's goals in the which also featured stout defensive play down the stretch of the contest.
Tuttle opened the scoring with an unassisted goal in the 14th minute as the senior from Harrisburg, N.C. dribbled into the box, then blasted a shot past Averett's goalkeeper to find the back of the net.
The second goal by Tuttle came as the result of a double assist by teammates Bry'Kendrick Moore and Thomas Kennedy in the 24th minute. Moore dropped a pass back to Kennedy who brilliantly played it off on a one-touch to Tuttle who handled the rest to score again for the Tornados.
With Brevard leading 2-0, Averett's Sean Dunbar scored the home team's lone goal to cut the lead to 2-1 in the 30th minute. BC would hold on from there however, holding the Cougars scoreless for the final 60 minutes of the match. In the second half, the Tornado defense limited Averett to just six total shots in the stanza.
Goalkeeper Patrick Hall registered five saves en route to the win, including two saves in the second half to help preserve the victory.
The Tornados will look to win a third consecutive game with another road match scheduled for Sunday at 3 p.m. at USA South Conference foe Pfeiffer. Brevard then will return home for a tilt vs. N.C. Wesleyan on Saturday, October 13 at 11 a.m. at Ives-Lemel Field.
