Catawba Too Much for Belmont Abbey Winning 3-1


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College’s onslaught of attacks was too much to handle for visiting Belmont Abbey in men’s soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field as the Catawba Indians won 3-1.  With the win Catawba improves to 7-3-1 on the season while the Crusaders fall to 4-8.

The Indians drew first blood midway through the first half as sophomore Kenny Bonilla (Salisbury, NC/Salisbury HS) put an unassisted goal past Dominic Schneider.  Bonilla’s aggressive attacks cost him a yellow card in the 37th minute after running into the keeper on a long ball.

In the second half, Corey Faughnan (Jacksonville, NC/Jacksonville HS) would add a second goal to Catawba’s tally. 

Belmont Abbey’s Clay Dimick would respond in the 71st minute to bring the score back to 2-1 in favor of Catawba.

Adam Kurdi (Chapel Hill, NC/E. Chapel Hill HS) would put the game out of reach for the Crusaders after connecting with a Domhnall Minogue (Greystones, IRELAND/Presentation) longball in the 84th minute.

Catawba recorded 13 shots on the night despite being called offsides eight times.  Belmont Abby tallied just six shots and three offsides.  Catawba also held the advantage in corner kicks with five to Belmont Abbey’s three.  Belmont Abbey committed 16 fouls in the game while Catawba committed just nine.

Schneider saved five shots on the day even when giving up the three goals.  Catawba keeper, Frankie Cardelle (Salisbury, NC/Salisbury/NC Central) saved just one shot in the game. 

Catawba returns to action on Saturday as the Indians face South Atlantic Conference opponent, Brevard.  Kickoff is scheduled for 4 pm.
