Dennis Salomon (Ann Arbor, MI) took a free kick from the top of the penalty box and lofted a chip over the Catawba wall to Martin, who headed a shot past Tribe keeper David Durham (Oak Ridge, TN). Catawba controlled play for much of the second half, getting two great chances to equalize just past the hour. Regner had both chances, the first was touched away by Patriot keeper Mike Frazee (Knoxville, TN), while the second he sent just wide. The Patriots would take a 2-0 lead in the 76th minute as Henry Theiling (Charleston, SC) raced past the Catawba defense after a long clearance from an Indian free kick. Catawba would answer back just over two minutes later as sophomore Simon Silva (Headington, ENGLAND) took a pass from senior Ben Foti (Fayetteville, NC) and beat Frazee from 10 yards out. The Indians nearly tied the match at the end, but Jake Pace's (Salisbury, NC) rip from 35 yards out was just over the crossbar as time expired. #6 FRANCIS MARION (1-0) 1 1 -- 2 CATAWBA (0-1) 0 1 -- 1 SCORING SUMMARY FM - 25:30 - Brain Martin (1) (Dennis Salomon) FM - 74:55 - Henry Theiling (1) C - 78:09 - Simon Silva (1) (Ben Foti) Shots at Goal: Catawba 9; Francis Marion 7 Corner Kicks: Catawba 6; Francis Marion 3 Goalkeeper Saves: Francis Marion - Mike Frazee 1 Catawba - David Durham 1 Offsides: Francis Marion 5; Catawba 3 Fouls: Catawba 14, Francis Marion 12 Cautions: Francis Marion - Theiling (22'); Catawba - Delabar (55'), Pace (60').
