Brevard goes on the road for back-to-back matches this weekend

BREVARD, N.C.- Brevard women's soccer will travel to LaGrange and Huntingdon this weekend for their second back-to-back road matches of 2017. The Tornados will look to build on their 7-4 record, the most wins since the program moved to the NCAA ranks in the 2008 season.

In their previous match Brevard shut out Agnes Scott 4-0, marking the fourth time of the season the team held their competition from scoring. The defense was led by freshman goalkeeper Hannah Weatherall, who recorded three saves in her first start of the year. On offense Megan Shina notched her ninth goal of the season, which leads the team in that category. On the season, 11 different Tornados have recorded at least one point, which has led to a balanced offensive attack. 

Heading into their first match of the weekend against LaGrange on Friday, the Panthers come into the contest at 1-9, with their only win of the season coming against William Peace on September 23rd. Defensively, the Tornados will look to contain Emma Echols, who is tied for first on the team with two points scored (one goal) and leads the team with 11 shot attempts on the season. The match will kick off from Panther Field at 1 p.m.

On Saturday Brevard will travel to Montgomery, Ala. to take on Huntingdon, who sits at 8-4-1 on the year. The Hawks come into the match 2-2-1 in their last five matches, and have not won a match since September 27th, when they beat LaGrange. Offensively the Hawks are led by Mac Pearson, who leads the team with 16 points on the year (six goals, four assists). The match will start at 7 p.m. EST.

This will be the first time Brevard has played LaGrange and Huntingdon since the program moved to the NCAA.
