Men's Soccer Announces Spring Schedule
Catawba men’s soccer coach Liam Farrell has put together a challenging spring schedule for his new look Catawba Indians. After doubling their win total in 2010 (10-8-1), Farrell’s team will look to difficult games in the coming months to prepare them for what could be a promising fall in 2011 where 10 starters return to a team that lost lone senior Mark Ketterer.
Catawba will open up a spring game against a United States Development Academy member, North Meck Soccer Club on March 2nd at Frock Field, just prior to Spring Break. The US Development Academy is the top flight of youth soccer in the United States, North Meck Soccer Club’s U18’s are currently unbeaten in the US Development Academy table.
After their return from Spring Break the Indians are back in action against a local foe, Davidson College, of the Division I Southern Conference, on March 20th at Frock Field. A week later, Catawba will make a stop in High Point at the PTFC Spring Showcase, a tournament hosted by the Big South Regular Season Champions on March 27th at Phillips Park. The tournament field is rounded out with several Division I, II, and III schools such as: Appalachian State University, High Point University, Radford University, Longwood University, Francis Marion University, Coker College, Greensboro College, Guilford College, Pfieffer University, North Carolina Wesleyan and of course the Catawba Indians.
On April 1st, the Battle of Highway 52, will see the Pfieffer Falcons travel to Frock Field for a rematch from this year’s season opener that saw Catawba upset the Falcons in overtime 2-1 on a Carson Smith golden goal in the 101st minute. On April 9th, Catawba will host both Division I Gardner-Webb and Conference Carolinas power Limestone, a year removed from an NCAA Tournament appearance.
All four home spring matches will be free to the public. Donations will be accepted toward the Catawba College Men’s Soccer Program at each event.
