Men's Soccer earns first SAC win

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College scored three times in a span of five minutes mid-way through the opening half and went on to defeat visiting Newberry 4-2 in South Atlantic Conference men's soccer action on Wednesday afternoon at Frock Field. Catawba improves to 6-4 overall and 1-1 in the SAC, while Newberry falls to 6-5 and 0-4. Catawba opened the scoring at the 24:10 mark as Ross Hudgins (Poquoson, VA) headed home a corner kick from Jeff Shea (Ft. Langley, BC, CANADA) into the upper right corner for the 1-0 lead. Just over 30 seconds later Simon Silva (Headington, ENGLAND) ripped a shot from the top of the box into the same upper corner for a 2-0 edge. Brennan Regner (Mebane, NC) closed out the first half scoring at the 28:35 mark. His shot was slowed by Newberry keeper Dustin Workman (Charleston, SC), but had enough steam to roll across the goal line. Newberry got a goal back with just over 20 minutes remaining. Brian Riddle (Little Mountain, SC) was initially saved, but he got the rebound and sent a ball to Jason Wiggins (Charleston, SC), who scored into an empty net. Catawba would add another goal just over a minute later as Shea converted a penalty kick. Wiggins scored his second for Newberry with five minutes to play to close out the scoring.
