Indians Fall to Barton 2-1
WILSON, NC -- The Catawba College men's soccer team fell 2-1 to the Barton College Bulldogs Saturday evening at the Barton Soccer Field. The loss drops Catawba to an 0-2 start to the season, while Barton improves to 1-1 overall.
The Indians fell behind 1-0 in the ninth minute of play after Barton's Rodrigo Neves put in a penalty. The score remained unchanged for the remainder of the half but the physical played remained high. Of the five yellow cards issued in the match, four came in the first half.
Catawba would tie up the match after Jack Ragen found teammate Jack Pettett for his first goal of the season.
Less than seven minutes later, Tolly Beatson put in the game winner for the Bulldogs after a one time pass from his teammates on the right side.
Catawba goalie, Christian Watts, tallied three saves on the night while Barton's Jen Madsen Hordvik recorded two. Catawba led the night with 14 shots to Barton's 11.
The Indians will return to action on Saturday, September 12, as they travel to Belmont Abbey for a 4:00 p.m. match.
