SALISBURY, NC – Senior Brennan Regnar (Mebane, NC) scored a goal in each half to lead the Catawba Indians to a 3-2 win over the visiting Wingate Bulldogs in South Atlantic Conference men’s soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field. With the win, the Indians improved to 6-2-1 overall and stay unbeaten in the SAC at 3-0, while Wingate drops to 7-3, suffering their first conference loss, falling to 2-1.

With three second left in the first half, sophomore Felipe Rubio (Miami, FL) took a free kick off a Bulldog foul, passed to junior Kyle McAleese (Stafford, VA), who then dumped it off to freshman Jason Dumond (Coppell, TX), who picked up his first goal of the season to send Catawba up 2-0 at the half. Wingate’s Robert Dawson (Manchester, ENGLAND) tallied his SAC-leading 12th goal on the year, in the 68th minute, to cut the lead to 2-1.
