Wolves fall 3-0 to visiting No. 21 Valdosta State
NEWBERRY — Five saves from sophomore goalkeeper Rebecca Darley couldn’t keep the No. 21 Valdosta State Blazers off the scoreboard as the Wolves fell 3-0 to Valdosta State.
Valdosta State (6-0-3) played even with Newberry (4-4) for much of the first half before the Blazers’ Emily Cooper sent a ball over the top to Margaret Stauffer who chipped Darley from just inside the 18-yard box.
The second half saw the Blazers control the ball off the opening whistle, resulting in back-to-back corner kicks for Valdosta State. The second of the two straight corners saw Deysla Reyes come up with a free header in the box off a served in ball from Lauren Hale.
The Blazers added an insurance goal in the 70th minute when Shelby Jennings tapped in a cross at the far post from Lauren Ingram.
Newberry’s defense tightened up late in the match and stopped the Blazers from capitalizing on late opportunities.
Newberry junior Breanna Naranjo took three shots in the match, while senior Ashley Reetz and junior Gabrielle Brodie each recorded a shot.
