MOUNT OLIVE -- Two hard-luck losses.

Jack Bailey scored in the 86th minute and lifted Limestone (S.C.) College to a 2-1 victory over the Mount Olive College men's soccer team at Amon Field on Saturday afternoon.

Gabriella Reid connected in the 60th minute and Limestone pulled out a 2-1 victory in the women's game.

It was the Conference Carolinas opener for both teams.

On the men's side, Limestone's Benjamin Morande broke the scoreless tie in the 11th minute. The Trojans answered in the 25th minute on Tyler Vandevender's goal -- the first for MOC this season. The Saints' defense failed to clear a cross by Emmanuel Wennah.

MOC keeper Nick Bernsdorft turned away seven shots.

Ashley Spanitz's goal off Leah Kennington's assist put Limestone ahead 1-0 in the women's game. Held scoreless for 311-plus minutes, the Trojans found the back of the net in the 43rd when Ellie Barnes tucked away a goal off Tia Rose's assist.

The score stood until Reid's game-winning goal.

The MOC men (0-2-0 overall) entertain Francis Marion (S.C.) University on Wednesday, while the women (0-4-0) travel to in-state foe St. Andrews.
