Lucas Hauth runs toward a crowd of cheering fans after scoring a late goal in the game vs. High Point.

 

CLINTON, S.C. – Senior Benjamin Gilligan scored early in the second half to lift Davidson to a 1-0 blanking of Presbyterian in non-conference men’s soccer action Tuesday evening inside Martin Stadium.

With their second straight shutout, the ‘Cats conclude the regular season 9-6-2 overall, while the Blue Hose fall to 6-5-2 with two games remaining.

Playing just over an hour from his hometown of Aiken, S.C., Gilligan’s eventual game-winner came off a low left-footed strike at the 53:43 mark. His second score in a Wildcat uniform since transferring from South Carolina was set up by Connor Smith.

Both keepers finished with a pair of saves.

Senior Lucas Hauth paced the Wildcats with two shots.
