10_MSOC_GallagherBA

MOUNT OLIVE, NC – The Catawba  men’s soccer team defeated the Mount Olive Trojans, 1-0, Saturday night as Indian sophomore Matt Gallagher (Chapel Hill, NC/Chapel Hill HS/Saint Leo) scored the game’s lone goal. With the win the Indians advance to 3-1 and  Mount Olive falls to 1-2-1.

Gallagher’s goal, his second of the season, came in the 38th minute off a cross from teammate Corey Faughnan (Jacksonville, NC/ Jacksonville HS).  The game proved to be physical as both teams combined to record 25 fouls, and each team picked up two yellow cards.  Indian freshman goalie, Luke McCarthy (Naples, FL/Naples), was strong for the Tribe by recording his first career shutout.  The Trojan’s Brad Newman entered the game as the second half goal keeper, recording three of the team’s four saves.

Catawba will return to action on Tuesday, September 14th, as they host Francis Marion at Frock Field.
