Football Looks to Snap Recent Drought vs. Wingate
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba’s football team will try for its third win in a row as its hosts Wingate on Family Weekend this Saturday at 6 p.m. After a season-opening loss to now second-ranked West Georgia, The Catawba Indians have reeled off a pair of wins, including last weekend’s 14-7 victory over Carson-Newman to begin league play.
The Catawba defense held Carson-Newman to just one score in posting a second straight road win over the Eagles. Jonathan Jean racked up a dozen tackles that included a sack. Kyle Kitchens also had a sack and blocked a field goal attempt on the final play of the first half.
Offensively, the Indians held possession for just over 35 minutes in the game. Mike Sheehan ran for one score and threw for the deciding touchdown early in the fourth quarter. He finished 19-of-24 passing for 163 yards. Chad Hollandsworth pinned the Eagles inside their 20 on five of his eight punts.
Wingate began its conference slate with a 37-0 shutout of Brevard to improve to 3-0. Jordan Berry caught three touchdown passes, two in the first half to help the Bulldogs to a 23-0 edge. Berry finished with seven catches for 73 yards. Kyle Johnson threw the three scores, completing 18-of-26 passes for 193 yards. Lawrence Pittman ran for 99 yards.
The Bulldogs held Brevard’s option attack to just 66 total yards and a mere 48 on the ground. The unit recorded five sacks and helped force three turnovers.
Catawba has lost four straight to the Bulldogs and have not beaten Wingate at home since 2007.
