Men's Soccer Falls at Mars Hill


MARS HILL, N.C. -- Host Mars Hill overcame an early 1-0 deficit to claim a 3-1 victory in South Atlantic Conference men’s soccer action on Saturday at Meares Stadium.  The Lions improve to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 2-2 and 1-1.

The Indians jumped on top with a goal just three minutes into the contest. Tim Frederik-Lange (Limburgerhof, Germany) put in a long pass from Belony Joseph (Charlotte, N.C./C. Cabarrus) for the early edge.

Mars Hill leveled the match in 33rd minute on the first of two goals from Franck Lannaud.  He headed home his first goal on a cross from Amine Merdjett.  His second goal came five minutes into the second half.  Elliot Tate sent a long ball to Lannaud, who just beat the keeper to it and snuck it into the back of the net.  That lead would grow to 3-1 on the hour when Stian Sanner converted off a pass from Adnan Saltagic.

The Lions held a 14-10 edge in shots and had a seven to five advantage on corners.  Christian Watts (Plymouth, England/Andover Central(KS) HS) recorded one save in goal.  Kristofer Winnen collected five saves in goal for the Lions.

Catawba travels to Lenoir-Rhyne for a 7 p.m. match on Wednesday.
