Zuzga, Brown score late to lift Men's Soccer to win at Wingate

WINGATE, NC -- Catawba College junior forward Troy Brown (Burlington, NC) scored twice as the Catawba Indians picked up a 4-2 win over host Wingate University in South Atlantic Conference men’s soccer action on Wednesday night at the Wingate University Soccer Complex.

Catawba improves to 7-2 overall and 2-0 in the SAC, while Wingate falls to 6-4 and 1-1. The match was tied 2-2 at halftime and Catawba scored both second half goals in the final 10 minutes.

Nathan Zuzga (Troy, MI) scored the match-winner in the 84th minute, while Brown tallied his second with just 30 seconds remaining to ice the issue. Zuzga took a perfect pass from freshman midfielder Kyle Jones (Tallahassee, FL) and found the back of the nets with the match-winner at 83:03.

Wingate struck first, as freshman forward A.J. Wullschleger (Monroe, NC) scored on a break-away in the 16th minute. Freshman forward Junior Nyemb (Douala, CAMEROON) assisted on the play.

Freshman Andrew Landry (Oshawa, ONT, CANADA) tied the match for Catawba less than a minute later, picking up a loose ball and scoring from close range in the 17th minute. Bulldog sophomore defender Lee Minton (Charlotte, NC) scored his first goal of the season in the 22nd minute to give the hosts a 2-1 lead, but Brown scored the first of his two goals for Catawba at the 43:15 mark to send the two teams to the locker room tied at 2-2. Catawba freshman goalkeeper Tyler Held (Virginia Beach, VA) recorded seven saves and allowed two goals. Wingate junior goalkeeper Matt Van Liew (Deptford, NJ) notched four saves and allowed four goals.
