SALISBURY, NC – Kenny Crowe (Reeders, PA) scored two goals to lead Catawba to a 5-2 win over the visiting Belmont Abbey Crusaders in men’s soccer action Wednesday night at Frock Field. Catawba improves to 9-3, while Belmont Abbey drops to 4-6-2. Catawba held a 26-6 edge in shots. The Crusaders jumped on the board first as a Tribe foul led to a Nick Wyatt (Franklin, TN) penalty kick at the 7:54 mark. In the 22nd minute, Gareth Turnbull (Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND) punched home his eighth of the year with assists credited to Zay-Zay Gilewala (Monrovia, LIBERIA) and Ryan Villiard (Holiday, FL). That would be all the scoring in the first half as both teams took a 1-1 tie into the locker room. Less than five minutes into the second half, the Indians took advantage of a Crusader foul inside the box. Crowe converted the PK for his fifth goal on the year. The Tribe took a 3-1 lead in the 71st minute as Kyle McAleese (Stafford, VA) sent a beautiful pass to a wide-open Gilewala who found the back of the net for the 11th time this season. Belmont Abbey came back to within one with just under ten minutes to play as Christian Ocampo (Greenville, SC) took advantage of an Indians misplayed pass, scoring his third on the season. Catawba scored twice in the final five minutes to close out the scoring on the night. Jason Dumond (Coppell, TX) took a pass from mid-field, off the foot of Aaron Castaneda (San Antonio, TX), and deposited in his fifth of the season. Crowe headed home his second of the night in the 88th minute courtesy of a Seth Clark (Huntersville, NC) corner kick for the final margin. Dan Fitzgerald (Seaford, DE) picked up the win for the Tribe stopping two shots. Crusader goalkeeper Sean O’Connell (La Crescenta, CA) made 13 saves in the losing effort.
