Cardinals Double Up Fredonia in 2-0 Victory

FREDONIA, N.Y. - The Catholic University men's soccer team scored a goal in both halves on its way to a 2-0 win over Fredonia State on Saturday. 

The Cardinals controlled the whole match, allowing four shots and just one on goal. Head Coach Travis Beauchamp's team took 21 on the afternoon. 

Senior midfielder Tyler Martin was instrumental in the team's success. He opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, and then assisted the next goal in the second half. 

Fellow senior Jake Nabbie got his first goal of the season in the 70th minute thanks to an assist from Martin. The Cards' backline preserved the clean sheet to win 2-0. 

Goalkeeper Jack Long saved the only shot on goal he faced, and was aided by defenders Nick Battaglia and Ryan Kennedy for their 90 minutes of play. 

Philip Meszaros, Mason Reinhart, and Brian Galfond were all named to the Fredonia Classic All-Tournament team for their efforts during the weekend. 

Catholic is back in action on Wednesday, September 12 against Stevenson for a 4 p.m. match.
