SALISBURY, Md. – The Catholic University men’s soccer team fell to No. 20 Salisbury on Wednesday by a score of 5-0 in the 2010 season opener.  CUA was outshot 19-7 for the game and had three corner kicks to the Seagulls’ seven.

In the second half Dave Corrigan, Mike Napolitano and Phil Bucheimer scored for Salisbury as it won the opener on a hot and sunny afternoon.

In goal for CUA Quinny Daly stopped eight shots in 90 minutes of action, while Brandon Mumby got the start for Salisbury and played 70 minutes before giving way to John Vnenchak.
