Men's Soccer knocks off #15 Tusculum on the road 2-1

GREENEVILLE, TN -- Catawba College clinched a second place in the South Atlantic Conference as the visiting Indians defeated 15th-ranked Tusculum 2-1 in men’s soccer action on Wednesday night at Pioneer Field. With the win, the Tribe improves to 10-3-1 overall and 5-2-0 in the SAC. The Pioneers slip to 9-4-1 and 4-2-1. Catawba took the pitch attacking, launching a number of early shots, some of which came tantalizingly close to drawing net. The Indians broke the ice in the 34th minute when Zay-Zay Gilewala (Monrovia, LIBERIA) made a move around TC goalkeeper J.P. Swaminathan (Brampton, Ontario, Canada) and sent a shot into the unmanned net from about seven yards out. With Catawba having carried a 1-0 advantage into the halftime period, the Indians struck again in the 59th minute. Jason Dumond (Coppell, TX) crossed a pass to Gareth Turnbull (Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND), who scored his team-leading 11th goal of the season to put Catawba up 2-0. The Pioneers quickly cut the margin back to a single goal when Damion Scott (Brampton, ONT, CANADA) launched a 25-yard free kick past Catawba keeper Dan Fitzgerald (Seaford, DE) to narrow the margin to 2-1. Tusculum had opportunities to tie the match, particularly when a Benyam Kefleyessus (Minneapolis, MN) header thumped the chest of Fitzgerald right under the cross bar. Nevertheless, the Indians held their ground and came away with the victory. Catawba took 15 shots in the contest, while Tusculum recorded 13. Swaminathan tallied five saves for the Pioneers, and Fitzgerald had three for the Indians.
