Cobras Late Goal Defeats Indians 2-1

18_MSOC_GasparBorjaCOK
SALISBURY, N.C. - Early lead slips away in the second half as Catawba drops a 2-1 decision against visiting Coker Sunday at Frock Field.

Freshman Borja Gaspar opened the scoring when he tallied his third career goal at the 28:04 mark, giving the Indians (2-9-0, 0-7-0) a 1-0 lead. Junior Hunter Faust laid a perfectly placed pass on the right foot of Gaspar, who slid the ball in the net between the Cobras' (4-6-0, 2-3-0) keeper, Justin Watkins, and the far post.

Catawba's keeper, Gianluca Tommasi provided a momentum boost with 16 seconds left in the opening half, which was physical, resulting in 19 fouls between the two teams and four yellow cards. A foul called against the Indians at the edge of the box was deemed to be inside the penalty area, awarding a penalty kick to the Cobras.

Christian Provenzano was stonewalled by Tommasi, preserving the 1-0 lead at intermission.

Momentum swung from Catawba to Coker when a Cobras' fatuous bounce went their way in the second half.

In the 55th minute, Provenzano's attempted cross ricocheted off a sliding Catawba defender and into a wide-open Indians' net.

After netting the equalizer, Coker increased its pressure and continued to push forward but the Indians' bend-but-not-break defense held off the Cobras' offensive onslaught. Coker struck for the eventual game winner with 2:23 left in regulation off a set piece. Joao Silva lobbed a ball into the box from 30 yards out on the near side and Matt Trimby headed it down and past Tommasi.

Inside the numbers:
- Both teams recorded nine shots apiece, while Coker held the advantage in corner kicks at 6-4.
- Coker was whistled for 19 fouls, three yellow cards and one red, while Catawba committed 12 infractions and two yellow cards.
- Tommasi registered two saves, while Watkins collected three.
- Gaspar totaled three shots, including two on goal, while Keenan Tuck took two and Tom Singhgolden, Michael Nuquse and Hunter Faust added one each.

Next Up:
Catawba travels to Hickory, N.C. Wednesday for a mid-week tilt at Lenoir-Rhyne. Kick-off is at 5 p.m.
