Green Terror notches 3-2 win at Catholic

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Michael Beard (Crofton, Md./Archbishop Spalding) broke a 2-all deadlock with a goal in the 81st minute to lift McDaniel to a 3-2 victory at Catholic in non-conference men's soccer action on Wednesday.

The Green Terror (7-6) took just 10 shots compared to the 23 fired by the Cardinals (10-3) but Beard capped a 13-minute stretch that netted four goals to lift his team to the win.

Marrio Davis (Baltimore, Md./Friends School of Baltimore) passed from the left to Beard, who drove the ball over the Catholic keeper for the senior's first goal since his freshman season with 9:50 on the clock.

Timothy Wineke (Reisterstown, Md./North Carroll) opened the scoring with a penalty-kick goal at the 17:17 mark.

After nearly 50 minutes without scoring, Michael DiMarco netted a Tyler Bills feed at the 67:10 mark to knot the score at 1-all.

Fewer than four minutes later, Adam Dolbey (Marydel, Del./Cesar Rodney) knocked a ball off the post and past the keeper to put McDaniel back in front by one.

Matt Hofrichter needed just 4:11 to once again even the game, punching home a low shot past a diving keeper off a Mike Brennan helper.

Robert Hollasch (Marriottsville, Md./Liberty) made a season-best 12 saves for McDaniel.

McDaniel returns to action at Muhlenberg on Saturday. Game time is 1 p.m.
