Men's Soccer evens SAC record with win over L-R

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba's Jeff Shea (Ft. Langley, BC, CANADA) had a goal and an assist to help the Indians to a 3-2 win over visiting Lenoir-Rhyne in South Atlantic Conference men's soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field. Catawba improves to 9-5 overall and 2-2 in the SAC, while Lenoir-Rhyne falls to 2-11 and 0-5. Catawba opened the scoring in the 20th minute as senior Mike Delabar (St. Louis, MO) headed home a cross from Brennan Regner (Mebane, NC). It was Delabar's team-leading eighth goal of the season and the second straight match the duo accounted for the opening goal. Lenoir-Rhyne would strike back five minutes later as Erik Schmitt (Kernersville, NC) rifled a shot from the top right side of the penalty box past Catawba keeper David Durham (Oak Ridge, TN). Catawba would regain the lead just seven minutes before halftime. Freshman Nickalus Brown (Ajax, ONT, CANADA) drove a low shot that was slowed by Bear keeper Tom Skora (Boca Raton, FL), but Sheatapped the ball home as a trickled toward the goalline. The Indians added a third goal just before the hour as Shea's blast from 15 yards was saved by Skora, but bounced back to Ryan Hudgins (Poquoson, VA), who followed with a blast from the top of the box. Joe Favero (Collingsville, MD) made things interesting with a goal in the 87th minute for the Bears.
