Second-Half Propels #16 Men's Soccer to Opening-Round Win

SALISBURY, NC – After a scoreless first-half of play, second-seeded Catawba College scored seven second-half goals to defeat seventh-seeded Mars Hill in the first-round of the Food Lion/South Atlantic Conference Men’s Soccer Tournament, held Wednesday night at Frock Field. The Indians, ranked #16 in NCAA II, improve to 14-4 overall while the Lions end their season at 5-13-1. Catawba wasted little time to start the second-half of play scoring four goals in the first ten minutes, jumping to a commanding 4-0 lead. Zay-Zay Gilewala (Monrovia, LIBERIA) picked up goals 17th and 18th on the year in the 49th and 51st minutes putting the Tribe up 2-0. Nathan Zuzga (Troy, MI) and Jason Dumond (Coppell, TX) assisted on Gilewala’s first goal while the second goal was unassisted. Ryan Frommel (Houston, TX) made it 3-0 as his shot deflected off Lion keeper Jonathan Adams (Tampa, FL), picking up his first goal of the season in the 55th minute. Less than a minute later, Frommel assisted on Tyler Kulp’s (Ephrata, PA) sixth goal on the year. In the 70th minute, Dumond put the Indians up 5-0 as his initial shot was saved by Adams, but the rebound came right back to him chipping in goal #6 of the season. Gareth Turnbull (Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND) scored the final two goals of the night for Catawba. His first came in the 74th minute taking a pass from Dumond, firing in his 11th. Six minutes later, Turnbull took a shot that deflected off the right post and into the goal for the final Indian tally of the game. Dan Fitzgerald (Seaford, DE) made four saves picking up the shutout. Adams made eight saves for Mars Hill. Catawba will now move on to face Tusculum in the semifinal round of the Food Lion/SAC Tournament to be held Saturday afternoon, 2:30pm, at Lenoir-Rhyne in Hickory.
