Delabar leads Men's Soccer into SAC semifinals

GREENEVILLE, TN -- Catawba College senior Mike Delabar (St. Louis, MO) scored two goals, one on a penalty kick, to lead the fifth-seeded Indians to a 2-1 victory over fourth-seeded Tusculum College Tuesday night in first round action of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference men's soccer tournament at Pioneer Field. The win puts the Indians into the semifinals, where they will meet top-seeded Wingate University Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. The match will be held at Pioneer Field in conjunction with the Food Lion SAC Fall Sports Festival in Greeneville, TN. Catawba improves to 11-7, while Tusculum ends their season at 9-7-1. Delabar scored his first goal at 19:41 via a penalty kick. He scored the match-winner less than a minute into the second half, squirting a shot past Tusculum goalkeeper Tony Swaminathan (Ontario, Canada) at the top of the penalty area. Delabar had scored two goals in the Tribe's loss to Tusculum last Wednesday and upped his season total to 14. Tusculum, who outshot Catawba 18-7, got as close as they would get after freshman Paul Hopkins (Portsmouth, England) took a pass from rookie Jonathan Gordon (Glasgow, Scotland) and one-timed it past Catawba goalkeeper David Durham (Oak Ridge, TN). The Pioneers kept the pressure on the Catawba defense, but was unable to get any legitimate scoring chances.
