SALISBURY, NC -- Sophomore Deon Cuffie-Joseph (Arima, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO) scored the lone goal to lift host Catawba to a 1-0 win over North Greenville in men’s soccer action on Saturday night at Frock Field.  Both teams now stand at 1-1 on the season.

The one-touch strike from Cuffie-Joseph came from 15 yards after a through ball from freshman Daniel Bailey (Statesville, NC/N. Iredell HS) in the 37th minute.  The Indians made the goal stand up as senior goalkeeper Tyler Held (Virginia Beach VA/Kellam HS) posted three saves in earning the clean sheet.

Held kept the game scoreless in the opening minutes, stopping Seth Snyder (Fountain Inn, SC) on a one-on-one situation.  Catawba had a goal called back midway through the first half for offsides before Cuffie-Joseph broke through for the Tribe’s first goal of the season.

Catawba held a 16-12 edge in shots with North Greenville holding a 7-5 advantage in corner kicks.  Nick Williams (Grayson, GA) shared goalkeeping duties with Justen Braddock (Columbia, SC) for the Crusaders.  Each made three saves.
