DALTON, Ga. – Brewton-Parker Men’s Soccer traveled north to Dalton, Ga. to resume Southern States Athletic Conference play with a challenging contest at Dalton State on Wednesday night.

The Barons (1-6, 0-2 SSAC) were dropped by the No. 2-ranked Roadrunners (4-0-3, 1-0-1 SSAC) in a tough 8-0 loss after a tight first-half battle in which BPC produced a solid defensive effort in the first 45 minutes of play.

“Dalton State is a good team, Coach Saif has them playing well,” Head Coach Bob Neumann said. “With as many injuries as we currently have, we will have to mature quickly if we’re going to be able to be competitive over the rest of this campaign.”

How It Happened | First Half

Dalton State’s offensive efforts came out firing early with five shots and four corner kicks within the first 15 minutes before breaking through the scoreless draw with a goal in the 16th minute for the early lead.

The Roadrunners continued to apply heavy pressure to the BPC backline, firing shot after shot to record a total of 10 more attempts toward the net. Despite the first-half offensive struggles for BPC, the highlight for the Barons was Andrea Abwe as he stood strong between the posts, notching a total of three saves in the first half.

How It Happened | Second Half

Manny Marin gave the Barons a chance to level the score in the 49th minute with a shot finding the hands of the DSC keeper, but that was the lone shot before the hosts swiftly changed the tune of the match with a pair of goals in just a five-minute span for a 3-0 lead.

The doors were blown off later in the second half as the Barons’ defense collapsed to the Roadrunners in an offensive showing that resulted in five more goals in the final 35 minutes of regulation. Dalton State rattled off 20 shots in the second half while the Barons recorded just four attempts, as the Roadrunners finished with an 8-0 scoreline.(Courtesy of BPC)
