Men's Soccer Upsets #8 Wingate
SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba upset #8 Wingate 3-1 in South Atlantic Conference men's soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field.

Wingate tied the score 1-1 in the 48th minute, as freshman defender Victor Tozelli (Sao Paulo, BRAZIL) knocked in a goal after a cross from Gui Lima (Sao Paolo, BRAZIL) . It was his second goal of the season.
Catawba retook the lead 10 minutes later when Corey Faughnan (Jacksonville, NC/Jacksonville HS) sent a ball toward goal that was put in by Ezra Ntirugelegwa (Durham, NC/Jordan HS). Spencer Preston (Estero, FL/Estero HS) sealed the win with a minute to play when drove in a ball from Matt Gallagher (Chapel Hill, NC/Chapel Hill HS/St. Leo) near the top of the box.
Catawba goalkeeper Frankie Cardelle (Salisbury, NC/Salisbury HS) made six saves. Wingate keeper Sanjit Kang (Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA) posted two saves.
