SALISBURY, N.C. – The Newberry College men’s soccer team remained unbeaten in South Atlantic Conference play as they went on the road and beat Catawba 2-1 on Saturday night.
A pair of young Wolves again led the way as freshman defender Paul Marie (France) and freshman forward Davis Bryan (Dacula, Ga.) scored to put Newberry on top as they improved to 3-3-1, 2-0-1 while Catawba fell to 2-6, 0-4.
The game didn’t open up until the second half but once the teams came out from the break, it was Newberry who took advantage. The quick freshman Marie blew past the Indians defense just over two minutes into the second half and beat Catawba goalkeeper Christian Watts to put the Wolves up 1-0.
Newberry doubled their lead 20 minutes later as Bryan finished off a ball played in by sophomore Tomas Garcia (Vinda Del Mar, Chile) that gave Newberry the cushion they needed to hold on to get the win.
Catawba pushed numbers forward as the game winded down and it culminated in a later goal as Bobby Cardelle scored off of a cross at the 87:17 mark. The Indians again applied pressure to attempt to geth the equalizer but couldn’t find the tying goal and the Wolves held on to take the win.
Newberry outshot Catawba 14-9 on the evening while also holding the edge in shots on goal at 7-6. In his first game since the Wolves played in the Catawba Invitation to open the season, junior forward Lucas Ferreira (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) posted a team high four shots while Marie and Bryan each posted two. Five other Newberry players also recorded a shot.
Senior goalkeeper Nick Lucido (Lakeland, Fla.) made five saves in the game, with four of the five coming in the second half including a huge save on a penalty kick.
Newberry will be back on the road on Sept. 30th as they travel to Mount Olive in a 7:30 p.m. matchup.
