SALISBURY, NC -- Alvaro Guerra (Valencia, VENEZUELA) got through on a breakaway in the 68th to score the winning goal as Queens claimed a 2-1 victory over host Catawba in men’s soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field. The Royals even their record at 1-1, while the Catawba Indians fall to 2-3.
Queens went on top just before the half. Oskar Hjerne Sundbaum (Froson, SWEDEN) sent a long free kick from 40 yards into the box that Gersi Cilingiri (Berat, ALBANIA) headed in from the six with just over a minute left in the opening period.
Catawba equalized in the 57th minute has Carson Smith (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) headed home a cross to the back post from Valentin Nava (Salisbury, NC/Carson HS) from just in front of the goal mouth. Ten minutes later, Jeremy Chambers (Princeton, WV) slid a pass up the middle that Guerra raced onto then dribbled past the goalkeeper before firing into the empty net from 10 yards out.
The Royals held a 12-6 edge in shots and took eight corners to three for Catawba. Evan Harvey (Apex, NC/Apex HS) played nearly 83 minutes in goal for the Indians and recorded three saves. Frankie Cardelle (Salisbury, NC/Salisbury HS/NC Central) had one save. John Rush (Jacksonville, FL) made one save on two Catawba shots on goal.
