Zuzga's two goals in final home match lifts Men's Soccer to 2-1 upset of #10 LMU

SALISBURY, NC -- Senior Nathan Zuzga (Troy, MI) scored both goals in his final home match as host Catawba upset 10th-ranked Lincoln Memorial 2-1 in men’s soccer action on Friday night at Frock Field.

The Catawba Indians improve to 10-7, while the Railsplitters fall to 12-1-2. Catawba jumped on top early as Ryan Villiard (Holiday, FL) dribbled through the LMU defense and played a nice give and go to Zuzga. Villiard’s shot was nicely saved by keeper Brent Cole (Knoxville, TN), but the rebound went to Zuzga, who fired into the empty net in the 14th minute.

A shot in the 23rd minute by Diogo Silvy (Santa Catarina, BRAZIL) for LMU hit the crossbar and an attempt by Claudio Rico (Jacarei, BRAZIL) was saved by Tribe keeper Tyler Held (Virginia Beach, VA) a minute later.

Lincoln Memorial had another great chance to score just two minutes into the second half as a shot from Leandro Pereira (Brasilia, BRAZIL) struck the post. The Railsplitters would get the equalizer four minutes into the final stanza as Nelson Pizarro (Pembroke Pines, FL) fired a shot through the Tribe defense from the top of the box. Catawba struck back with the winning goal just past the hour.

Troy Brown (Burlington, NC) served a long cross across the box to Zuzga, who settled and fired past Cole at the 60:48 mark, giving the senior 10 goals on the season. Cole made five saves for LMU. Held had four stops for Catawba, playing all but 13 seconds. Senior keeper Will McElheny (Norwood, NC), who has been unable to play due to an illness, started the match and exited on an early ball out of touch.
