CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Forced to play a home game away from campus, the Covenant men's soccer team had little difficulty in getting their second straight win as they defeated USA South foe Huntingdon 4-0 on Wednesday night.

The match was moved to Chattanooga Christian School after heavy rain over the last few days left Scotland Yard unplayable.

Covenant moves to 9-4-2 overall and 5-1-1 in conference play. The win keeps the Scots in second place in the USA South standings, just two points behind Greensboro. Huntingdon drops to 2-7-4 on the year and 1-3-2 in league play.

Joel Friesen got the scoring going in the 11th minute with his seventh goal of the season, a career-high for the senior. Friesen headed in the ball off a throw-in from Danny Knight to put the Scots up 1-0.

Covenant struck twice in the final minute of the first half, both coming from Snoopy Davidson. Davidson found the back of the net with 59 seconds remaining in the period, assisted by Friesen, and then headed in a beautiful cross from Gordon Carpenter just 30 seconds later giving Covenant a 3-0 edge. The scores for Davidson were his fifth and sixth goals of the year.

In the second half, Russell Harrison notched his first collegiate goal in the 54th minute when he took a free kick and knocked it in off the upper right portion of the post.

Covenant outshot the visiting Hawks 16-0 on the night. Scots keepers Daniel Kubin and Jonathan Crossman combined for the shutout. Alex Brown made three saves for Huntingdon.

The Scots will be off for nine days before hosting USA South opponent Averett on Friday, Oct. 24 at Scotland Yard. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m.
