Pfeiffer Tallies 4-1 Victory Over Catawba to Remain Undefeated


SALISBURY, N.C. -- The Catawba College men’s soccer team concluded its final home game of the year with a 4-1 loss to #1 Pfeiffer University Wednesday night at Frock Field. The loss drops the Indians to 5-10 on the season while Pfeiffer improves to 16-0.

Martim Galvao tallied the first goal of the night in the 13th minute. Galvao began alone the right sideline before beating two Catawba defenders to the middle of the field to rip a shot past Catawba goalie Christian Watts.

Later in the 38th minute of play, Catawba committed a foul that set up a scoring opportunity the Falcons. Galvao took the kick from midfield range into the box where Jaime Siaj was able to flick the ball onto Cristobal Allendes. The Chilean junior connected to beat Watts for the two goal advantage.

Catawba senior, Kenny Bonilla tallied his seventh goal of the season in the 58th minute. The goal came from header just inside the near post after receiving a Belony Joseph lob. Joseph created space after beating two Pfeiffer defenders off the dribble.

The game became extremely physical in the second half resulting in 24 fouls between the two teams. With 15 minutes left to go in the game a penalty just outside the Catawba box resulted in a red card for Watts.

Playing a man down, Pfeiffer capitalized in the 81st minute to beat Catawba’s backup goalie, Kennedy Little. The goal came when Galvao controlled the ball in the middle of the box and found Santi Moar on the right side. Moar’s drive beat a diving little.

In the 86th minute Pfeiffer sealed the game when Alex Stoiljkovic took a short corner and lobbed the ball in front of the Catawba net. Roberto Soares outjumped the Catawba defenders to head the ball into the goal.

Watts finished the night with nine saves while Little stopped four in the last 15 minutes.  Pfeiffer’s keeper, Tomas Correa recorded one save in the game.

Pfeiffer outshot Catawba 27-5 and led in corners 9-1.

Catawba will conclude the regular season on Saturday with a trip to Lincoln Memorial for South Atlantic Conference action. Kickoff is marked for 3:30 p.m.
