Men’s Soccer: Caterino Leads Titans Past Gators

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. – The Westminster men's soccer team won their season opener, 4-1, against Allegheny College at home on Wednesday.

Westminster got on top early, 1-0, with a score from senior Tyler Caterino (Monessen, PA / Monessen) in the 14th minute. The Titans were able to build on their momentum in the 36th minute as senior Nate Taylor (Pittsburgh, PA / Keystone Oaks) scored, assisted by graduate student Nick Iregui (Gig Harbor, WA / Charles Wright Academy) and senior Logan Mannheimer (South Park, PA / South Park). Four minutes later, as the first half was coming to an end, senior Noah Weiss (South Park, PA / South Park) found sophomore Kai Haseyama (Encinitas, CA / San Dieguito Academy) for a goal and the Titans seized control of the game with a 3-0 lead.

In the second half, Shane Lisman of the Gators spoiled the shutout by scoring a goal in the 47th minute. As Allegheny tried to put pressure on the Titans' defense for a potential comeback, they would be denied by a multitude of Titan defenders. Caterino scored his second goal of the game to make it 4-1 with less than three minutes left in the game.

Westminster outshot the Gators (23-16) and bested them in shots-on-goal (9-5). Westminster also had a slight advantage in corner kicks (7-6).

Junior goalkeeper Jad Jadallah (Canfield, OH / Canfield) earned the win after having four saves in a complete-game effort.

Westminster is back in action on Saturday, September 4 as it travels to Huntingdon, Pa. to take on Juniata College. Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m.
