Men's Soccer advances to semifinals on McAleese's penalty kick

MARS HILL, NC – Sophomore Kyle McAleese (Stafford, VA) scored on a penalty kick just over ten minutes into the second half to lift fifth-seeded Catawba to a 2-1 win over host and fourth-seeded Mars Hill in an opening round match of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men’s Soccer Tournament on Wednesday night at Meares Stadium. Catawba improves to 12-7 and advances to a Saturday semifinal against top-seed and host Tusculum at 9 a.m. in Greeneville, TN. It marks the third staight year the Indians have advanced to the semifinals despite being the lower seed. Mars Hill ends its season at 6-11. Catawba opened the scoring in cold and extremely wet conditions. Freshman Kenny Crowe (Reeders, PA) scored at the 16:30 mark on a header off a corner kick. The goal was assisted by Ryan Hudgins (Poquoson, VA). Mars Hill tied the match just before the half after Benj Bostic (Wingate, NC) connected on a long pass from Jonathan Hoyt (Ames, IA) and Craig Cook (Marietta, GA) in the 44th minute. The teams went into the locker room at halftime knotted at 1-1. In the 57th minute, McAleese was fouled in the box and drove a penalty kick into the back of the net for what would prove to be the match winner. Catawba out shot Mars Hill 16-to-12. Catawba keeper David Durham (Oak Ridge, TN) made six saves in the match while Mars Hill's keeper Matt Nocks (Greenville, SC) stopped five Indian shots. #5 CATAWBA (12-7) 1 1 -- 2 #$ MARS HILL (6-11) 1 0 -- 1 SCORING SUMMARY C - 16:30 – Kenny Crowe (3) (Ryan Hudgins) MH - 43:01 – Benj Bostic (Jonathan Hoyt, Craig Cook) C - 56:32 – Kyle McAleese (2) – PENALTY KICK Shots at Goal: Catawba 16, Mars Hill 12 Corner Kicks: Catawba 5, Mars Hill 4 Goalkeeper Saves: Mars Hill – Matt Nocks 5 Catawba – David Durham 6 Cautions: Mars Hill – Cook (81’); Catawba – Rubio (65’), Ry.Hudgins (75’), Crowe (88’) ATT: 70 #######
