Late goals give Moodie first win as C-N head coach; Eagles down Bryan, 4-2


JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. – The Carson-Newman Eagles scored two late goals in a six-minute span to finish off Bryan College, 4-2, on Wednesday night at McCown Field.

The win gives Eagles' first-year head coach Richard Moodie his first career win. C-N is now 1-1 on the year.

Senior Robbie Hill's (Middlesborough, England) strike inside the back post gave the Eagles a 3-2 lead in the 76th minute. Hill finished a Tyson Adkinson (Franklin, Tenn.) for his second score of the game.

Taylor Jolley (Morristown, Tenn.) would add C-N's final goal minutes later finishing a breakaway from the right side of the box.

The Eagles struck first in the 12th minute when Adkinson put home a header from right in front to finish a corner by to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead.

The Eagles had a chance to make it 2-0 a minute later when Josh Earl was fouled inside the box, but Bryan keeper Mark Price stopped Robbie Hill's (Middlesborough, England) penalty kick.

It wouldn't take long for C-N to get its second goal.

Junior Matt Craine (Morristown, Tenn.) found Hill at the top of the box, and Hill buried it in the back of the net from 20 yards to make it 2-0.

Bryan got on the board in the 53rd minute as Harry Sherwood scored on a free kick from 40 yards out to make it 2-1.

The Lions tied the match when Jorge Gonzalez put a save by C-N's Mikey Alley (Kingsport, Tenn.) from in front to make it 2-2 in the 70th minute, but the Eagles would answer with a flurry minutes later. Alley had seven saves for the Eagles. 

Carson-Newman returns to action this weekend in Greeneville, Tenn. The Eagles face Nova Southeastern Friday at 3 p.m. on the Tusculum College campus. They also face Barry University on Sunday at 5 p.m. on the TC campus.
