Railsplitters Fall To Rival Wingate In Regular Season Finale

Box Score

HARROGATE, TN - Saturday's 1-0 overtime loss to conference rival Wingate University puts the Railsplitters in fourth place of the South Atlantic Conference men's soccer standings at 5-3 going into Wedneday's first round action of the 2008 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament.

The contest was relatively even from a defensive standpoint as LMU goalkeeper Michael Watkins (Statesville, North Carolina) recorded six saves on the afternoon with one goals against, while Wingate's Joey Calandra finished the match with four saves and the shutout.  Wingate's offensive attack did have a little more punch then LMU's however, as the Bulldogs outshot the Railsplitters 7-4 in shots on goal.

The Bulldogs picked up their tenth win of the year only 1:16 into the overtime period when forward Junior Nyemb caught a deflected shot in front of the goal and slammed it in unassisted to end the match.  The win puts the Bulldogs at 10-6-2 overall and 3-4-1 in the South Atlantic Conference which is good enough for sixth place in the league standings.  Wingate will most likely play Newberry on Wednesday in the first round of the SAC Tournament in Newberry, South Carolina. 

LMU falls to 10-6-2 overall and 5-3 in conference as they will now prepare to face Mars Hill College on Wednesday in first round action of the 2008 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament.  Kick off will be at 3:00 p.m. on the new LMU soccer field.
