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.  The win marked the second victory over a nationally-ranked squad for the Catawba Indians this season, who improve to 7-3-3 overall and 2-1-3 in the SAC.  The Bulldogs fall to 8-2 and 5-1.
 
Catawba scored first, just 33 seconds into the contest, when Valentin Nava (Salisbury, NC/Carson HS) one-timed a cross from Carson Smith (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS).  That would be the lone goal of the second half as the Indians took a 1-0 lead to the halftime locker room.

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. 

The Indians had defeated #17 Mars Hill 2-1 earlier this season in overtime.  Catawba travels to Tusculum for its next match on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
