Overtime Goal Lifts LMU Over Catawba 3-2
HARROGATE, TN -- Mario Pinto's game-winning score in the 98th minute, lifts Lincoln Memorial to a 3-2 overtime victory versus the Catawba Indians in South Atlantic Conference men's soccer action on Saturday at the LMU Soccer Complex. The Lincoln Memorial Railsplitters improve to 9-5-1 on the season and 6-3-1 in South Atlantic Conference play. Catawba falls to 8-5-1 overall and 4-5-1 in the league with the loss.
After 30 minutes of scoreless action, the Indians broke the game open with a goal in the 32nd minute. Corey Faughnan was responsible for that goal as he headed in a flick pass from Matt Wilkinson to put Catawba on top, 1-0. Faugnhan's fourth goal of the season proved to be the only score of the half.
Lincoln Memorial worked quickly to tie the game in the second frame as Leonardo da Silva curved a free kick past the Indian keeper, Frankie Cardelle, in the 55th minute to knot the match at one apiece.
Pinto gave Lincoln Memorial the lead in the 73rd minute after receiving a pass from freshman George Burne in the middle of the box where he flicked one into the back of the net.
The Indians responded only nine minutes later as Kenny Bonilla rocketed a ball past LMU keeper Marcel Barwanietz to square the match back up at 2-2.
The two teams combined for six shots in the final eight minutes of regulation with each squad firing three attempts, however, neither team would score, sending the game into overtime.
Pinto would break the tie in the 98th minute as he took a long pass from da Silva and drove one into the lower left corner to send LMU away with a 3-2 victory.
The Railsplitters finished with a 27-15 edge in shots and Pinto led the way with 11 shots and five shots on goal. Corey Faughnan paced the Indians with seven shots and four shots on goal.
LMU keeper Marcel Barwanietz picked up the win after making four stops and allowing two goals in 97:54 of work. Cardelle suffered the loss after surrendering three goals and making three saves over that same span.
Catawba returns to Frock Field on Tuesday to host coach Ken Hassler's former team, Montevallo. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 pm.
