Men's Soccer Comes Up One Goal Short in Loss at Carson-Newman


JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Second-seeded Carson-Newman avoided an upset by Catawba in the opening round of the 2010 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men’s Soccer Tournament with a 2-1 win at McCown Field on Wednesday night.  The Eagles improve to 12-4-1 and advance to a Friday semifinal.  The seventh-seeded Catawba Indians end their season at 10-8-1.

After a scoreless first half the teams combined for the three goals in a span of a minute and 20 seconds around 10 minutes into the final period.  Catawba scored first on sophomore Carson Smith’s (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) team-leading ninth goal at the 53:55 mark.  He fired in a shot for 20-yards out to end the scoreless deadlock. 

Carson-Newman wasted little time in scoring the equalizer.  Less than a minute expired when Anthony Chiappetta knocked a ball loose in front of the Catawba goal and Adam Thomas converted at the 54:50 mark.  Twenty-one seconds later the Eagles had the lead on a goal by Robert Hill. 

The Eagles held a 13-7 edge in shots and had a 9-4 advantage in the second half.  Luke McCarthy (Naples, FL/Naples HS) recorded four saves for the Indians.  Jordan Moore stopped a pair of shots for Carson-Newman.
