BREVARD, N.C. — For the second straight game freshman Brittany Singleton found the back of the net for the Newberry women’s soccer team as the Canton, N.C.-native scored the game winning goal as the Wolves topped the Tornadoes 1-0 on Wednesday afternoon.

Newberry opened the second half on the attack, finding itself subject to an offside call in the 49th minute. In the 55th sophomore Gabrielle Brodie (Rolleston, Canterbury, New Zealand) took the Wolves first shot of the half, before the two squads exchanged shots for the next few minutes.
In the 64th minute Singleton scored on a far post look giving the Wolves a 1-0 lead. Singleton’s goal was her second of the season.
The second half saw Newberry outshoot Brevard 12-2, but placed only two shots on frame.
