Nash's Second Half Goal Allows Railsplitters To Remain Unbeaten In SAC Play

Box Score

HARROGATE, TN - The Lincoln Memorial University men's soccer team moved its South Atlantic Conference record to 5-0 Saturday afternoon when the Railsplitters knocked off visiting Catawba College 1-0 in Harrogate during homecoming festivities on the LMU campus.

Although the Railsplitters dominated the match from a possession standpoint and in the shots-on-goal category by a margin of 9-1, it wasn't until late in the second half of play in the 76th minute when LMU junior midfielder Chris Nash (Coventry, England) caught a deflected shot that came off the hands of Catawba goalkeeper Evan Harvey and squeezed it into the frame to give the Railsplitters their 1-0 margin of victory. 

Defensively, Harvey was tested by the Railsplitters from the beginning of the first half, as he tallied nine eight saves on the afternoon, giving up the game-winning-goal with only minutes to play.  LMU keeper Michael Watkins (Statesville, NC) however was challenged only once.

Now 6-3-3 on the year and 5-0 in league play, the Railsplitters are currently one of two unbeaten teams in South Atlantic Conference play along with Anderson University and are set to host in-state rival Tusculum College Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m.  The match with the Pioneers is one of two remaining regular season home matches this season.
