Barons dominant in 6-1 win over Tennessee Temple

By Bill Glass

The Brewton-Parker men's soccer team got back on track after three straight road losses with an impressive win 6-1 over Tennessee Temple on Friday at the Brewton-Parker field.

In scoring its second win over a team from Tennessee this season, Barons coach Ben Moore said the game was never in doubt for Brewton-Parker (2-4), which outshot the visiting Crusaders 38-4.

"We dominated from start to finish," Moore said, noting that his game plan envisioned strong attacks coming out of the midfield.

Such is what Moore got, with success primarily delivered by Lee Powell, a junior midfielder from Rhondda, Wales, who accounted for two goals and two assists.

Also pushing up into the attack was junior Juan Henao from Medellin, Colombia, who had two assists, and freshman Iain Thomson of London, Ontario, who scored off an assist by Jason Ford, a senior from Trincity, Trinidad and Tobago, who later put in a goal himself.

Freshman Early Jackson of St. Marys continued to impress playing up top, where he scored two goals on balls played through to him by Powell. Brian Yanful of London, Ontario, another freshman, also had an assist.

"It was great team-work all around, Moore said. "I told the guys before the game that we needed to do a better job of setting up our shots and that is what happened -- six goals on six assists."

The win followed a close, 2-0 setback Sept. 9 at Thomas University, one of the region's toughest NAIA squads.

The Barons traveled to play Toccoa Falls College on Tuesday night and will hit the road for a Georgia-Alabama-Carolina Conference match Saturday at 7 p.m. against Southern Wesleyan University in Central, S.C. Brewton-Parker's next home action is Tuesday, Sept., 23, against Oglethorpe University at 4 p.m.
