Men's Soccer drops SAC opener

SALISBURY, NC -- Mars Hill College overcame an early two goal deficit and defeated host Catawba 4-3 in South Atlantic Conference men's soccer action on Tuesday night at Frock Field. With the win, Mars Hill improves to 4-2-1 overall and 1-0 in the SAC. Catawba falls to 4-4 and 0-1. Catawba jumped out quickly on two Jeff Shea (Ft. Langley, BC, CANADA) goals in the opening 13 minutes. His first came on a penalty kick at 8:07 after Brennan Regner (Mebane, NC) was fouled at the top of the box. Shea scored his second just five minutes later. Mars Hill would come back to tie the match on a goal by Walter Gay (Arina, TRINIDAD) in the 21st minute and another by Todd Tinker (Statesboro, GA) at the 37 minute mark. The Indians would strike right back as Ben Foti (Fayetteville, NC) volleyed home a shot 38 seconds later. The Lions would equalize again two minutes later on Craig Cook's (Marietta, GA) goal. The second half saw just one goal. Greg Ruffino (Amherst, NY) put Mars Hill ahead for the first time just before the hour. He collected a long pass from Jonathan Hoyt (Ames, IA) and beat Tribe keeper David Durham (Oak Ridge, TN) at the 58:58 mark. Catawba had several chances in the closing minutes, but defender Billy Harrell (Watkinsville, GA) cleared one ball off the line, while goalkeeper Josh Bruce (Canton, GA) came up with several of his eight saves in the closing moments.
