Belmont Abbey scored three second half goals to overcome a 2-1 halftime deficit, as freshman Mitchell Hepburn scored twice in a four minute span and senior Conor Wells added a late insurance goal in addition to his earlier tally to give the men's soccer team a 4-2 win at North Greenville this afternoon. The win moves the Abbey's record to 6-9 overall and 3-5 in Conference Carolinas, while North Greenville ends its season with a mark of 3-11-1 overall and 1-7 in league play.
The Crusaders finish the season tied for fifth along with Pfeiffer and King, and will be seeded sixth in the upcoming conference tournament, where they will travel to Barton for a 7:00 kickoff Tuesday evening.
Adam Turner put North Greenville ahead 1-0 just 6:24 into the match, but Wells pulled the Crusaders level just five minutes later for his fourth goal of the year.
Turner, however, struck again, netting his second marker of the afternoon at the 36:56 mark to put North Greenville back in front, but that would be the Crusaders last goal of the match.
Belmont Abbey exploded in the second half, as Hepburn knotted the match with his first career goal at the 79:04 mark. Four minutes later, he tacked on another, this one for his first career game winning goal.
With a minute left in regulation, Wells sealed the 4-2 win with his second goal of the day with his fifth goal of the season.
