Men's Soccer falls to #20 Tusculum

SALISBURY, NC – Tusculum College, ranked 20th in NCAA II, defeated host Catawba 2-0 in South Atlantic Conference men’s soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field. With the win, the Pioneers claim at least a share of the league championship and the top-seed in the tournament. Tusculum improves to 14-1-1 overall and 6-1 in the SAC, while the Indians fall to 9-7 and 3-4. The teams combined for 37 shots in the offensive-minded match, but the Pioneers got the only tallies on a pair of first goals. Matt DeMartini (Dover, NJ) scored the first goal in the 20th minute, while Paul Hopkins (Portsmouth, ENGLAND) added the second in the 27th minute. Both teams had quality chances in the final period. Catawba’s Clain Zimmerman (Tallahassee, FL) had a chance with just under 30 minutes to play, but defender Dave DeSouza (Oakville,ONTARIO,CANADA) cleared the shot off the goal line. Tusculum also had a pair of chances that were denied by Tribe defenders Ryan Hudgins (Poquoson, VA) and Nick Brown (Ajax,ONTARIO,CANADA). The final Tribe chance came with 20 minutes left, but Brennan Regner (Mebane,NC) fired just over the bar.
