Landry's Hat Trick Sends Men's Soccer Into SAC Tournament
BREVARD, NC -- Senior Andrew Landry (Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA/Donevan Institute) scoredall three goals as Catawba claimed a 3-0 win over host Brevard in South Atlantic Conference men’s soccer action on Saturday afternoon at the Brevard Soccer Field.

Brevard would actually finish with a 24-20 edge in shots, but Catawba keeper Tyler Held (Virginia Beach, VA/Kellam HS) recorded a dozen saves in posting the shutout. It is his second of the season.
