WASHINGTON – Benjamin Aryeetey scored the lone goal of the game in the 85th minute as Salisbury notched a 1-0 victory over Catholic in non-conference action on Saturday, Sept. 21 in Salisbury, Md.

For the game, Catholic held a 9-to-5 advantage in corner kicks, while Salisbury controlled the shots taken 17-to-13. Meuschke picked up eight saves in the loss.
