Men's Soccer Falls to Erskine in Opener
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Erskine rallied to win over host Catawba Saturday night at Frock Field. This game was both team openers.
Catawba took the lead with the opening goal in the 17th minute. Omar Green took a pass at the top of the box from Jack Ragen, dribbled to the left of the keeper and fitted a shot just inside the far post.
Erskine equalized the match in the 53rd minute. On their initial corner kick of the match, Luke Randle collected a deflection at the top of the box and fired past Catawba keeper Evan Jeckells.
The flying fleet then stole the lead with 7 minutes left in the game, drawing a foul at the top left side of the box. Dario Pavon’s free kick took a deflection and rolled in front of the goal where Alex Mushata tapped in over the goal line.
Jeckells made four saves for Catawba. Mikael Varin stopped two shots for Erskine.
Catawba returns to action on Wednesday as they host Mount Olive at 5 pm.
