SALISBURY, NC- The 14th-ranked UNC-Pembroke Braves jumped out to a 5-0 lead then held off 16th-ranked Catawba to claim a 7-4 win in men’s soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field. UNCP improves to 1-0, while the Indians fall to 1-1. Pembroke scored three times in a three minute span starting in the 17th minute to take control. Sascha Gorres (Flensburg, GERMANY) opened the scoring and was followed by Avery Croteau (Raleigh, NC) and Jose Sanches (Catarina Pinula, GUATEMALA) for a 3-0 edge at the 18:59 mark. Graeme Little (Swindon, ENGLAND) closed out the first half scoring with a pair of goals, the first on a penalty kick in the 26th minute and the second just two minutes from the half. Catawba roared back in the second half with four unanswered goals to cut the margin to 5-4.
