Belmont Abbey’s overcame injuries to starters Luis Arrieta (knee), Michael Scharville (back) and Nana Agyjeman (back) to defeat Limestone 2-1 in overtime Tuesday in the opening round of the conference tournament.
“It was a great team effort … a fantastic team effort,” Crusaders coach Stuart Brown said.
The Crusaders advance to Friday’s 7:30 p.m. semifinal against regular-season champion Lees-McRae (17-1-1) at Mount Olive. Lees-McRae is ranked No. 2 nationally and No. 1 in the region.
“It’ll be a challenge for us,” Brown said. “But one we look forward to.”

The streak continues, as in Belmont Abbey’s winning streak and shutout streak.
The Lady Crusaders’ 1-0 Wednesday conference tournament victory over Anderson increased their winning streak to 11 and shutout streak to 10.
The last time Belmont Abbey allowed a goal?
All the way back on Sept. 22 in a 4-1 victory over Limestone.
Interestingly, the Lady Crusaders next opponent is Limestone — at 5 p.m. Friday in the semifinals at Mount Olive.

Entering the final weekend of league play, Converse (3-15), Queens (2-17) and Barton (1-17) were in contention for ninth place.
