A victory on the Brewton-Parker College's two-match weekend trip to South Carolina gave the Lady Barons their second victory during a four-match stretch in eight days.

The Lady Barons defeated North Greenville College 7-2 Friday in Tigerville, S.C., before they were dealt a 4-1 loss Saturday at Newberry College.

Freshman midfielder Brandi Culpepper of Lithonia led the Lady Barons with three goals, while senior midfielder Lisa Cozzarin of Guelph, Ontario, freshman forward Andrea Gaston of Martinez and freshman Sheena Lehman of Concord all socred one goal apiece.

North Greenville (0-5) gave Brewton-Parker another score on an own-goal.

Newberry (2-5) led Saturday's match 2-0 at halftime before junior defender Kendra Sewell of Canton put the Lady Barons (2-8) on the board off a second-half corner kick.

Earlier in the week, on Sept. 17, The Lady Barons allowed two early goals to Shorter College and the Lady Hawks made it hold en route to their 5-1 GACC victory in Rome. Ga.

Shorter scored twice in the opening five minutes, a lead Lehman whittled to one with an unassisted goal for Brewton-Parker in the 34th minute.

The Lady Hawks scored three more goals in the second half to seal the decision, which dropped Brewton-Parker to 0-3 in GACC action.

"We didn't play badly," Lady Barons coach Jeremy Aven said. "We could've won the game. The first five minutes hurt us."

Brewton-Parker's next action is Saturday, when the Lady Barons travel to Biloxi, Miss., to face William Carey College at noon.

Their next home match is Oct. 4, when they entertain Webber International (Fla.) University at 4 p.m., and Southern Wesleyan (S.C.) University visits Brewton-Parker on Oct. 5 for a GACC contest at 4 p.m.
