Men's Soccer Season Ends With SAC Tourney Loss to Top-Seeded Carson-Newman

JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- The Catawba men’s soccer team had its season come to an end in the opening round of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament with a 3-1 loss to 15th-rankled Carson-Newman on Tuesday night at McCown Field.  The top-seed Eagles improve to 13-3-1 and advance to a Friday semifinal at Rock Hill, SC.  The Catawba Indians end its campaign at 5-12-1.

Carson-Newman took the lead eight minutes in as Robert Hill took a cross from Omar Cooke and scored from 10 yards out.  Catawba battled back and equalized on a goal by Kirby Freeland (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS) at the 25:06 mark.

The tie was short lived however, as the Eagles went back on top less than two minutes later on Hill’s second goal.  Cooke shared the assist with Ben Backstrom on the goal, which came off a deflection from just outside the goalie box.

That would be the winning goal, but Cooke added some insurance in the 77th minute as he headed home a corner kick from Daniel Tackling.  The Eagles held a decisive 26-6 edge in shots.  Catawba keeper Tyler Held (Virginia Beach, VA/Kellam HS) stopped seven shots, while his C-N counterpart Jordan Moore had three saves.
