Zuzga assists on three goals as Men's Soccer tops Francis Marion

SALISBURY, NC -- Senior Nathan Zuzga (Troy, MI) assisted on three goals as host Catawba sloshed out a 3-1 win over Francis Marion on Tuesday night in rainy and soggy conditions at Frock Field.

The Catawba Indians snap a four-game losing skid and improve to 9-7. The Patriots fall to 3-11-1. Catawba peppered Patriot keeper Jeremy Crooks (Florence, SC) for much of the first half, but the sophomore turned back a bevy of attempts until Ryan Villiard (Holiday, FL) collected a cross from Zuzga in the 43rd minute to put Catawba on top to stay.

Catawba’s Nathan Brown (Huntersville, NC) nearly broke the ice minutes before, but his header was cleared off the line by FMU’s Chris Adrian (Schaumburg, IL). Catawba grabbed a 2-0 lead in 52nd minute when Zuzga slotted a through ball between two defenders, finding Andrew Landry (Oshawa, ONT, CANADA) in stride, one-on-one with the keeper.

The Patriots cut the margin in half with just under 20 minutes to play as Adrian settled a pass from Jonathan Bartomioli (Bartlett, IL) and placed a ball past Tribe keeper Tyler Held (Virginia Beach, VA).

The Indians would regain its two-goal edge four minutes later as Kyle Jones (Tallahassee, FL) ran onto a Zuzga pass from midfield to tally in the 75th minute. Catawba held a 28-10 edge in shots. Crooks made 11 saves for the Patriots, while Held stopped four shots for Catawba.
