GREENVILLE -- After cruising through its first round match in the Class A playoffs with an 11-0 win, the second-seeded Christ Church boys soccer team pulled away from Indian Land in the second half, holding on for a 3-0 win Thursday at Carson Stadium.

"(Indian Land) had a nice team. They worked hard and you've gotta give them credit," Christ Church coach David Wilcox said. "We possessed the ball well, let them chase us and then they got tired. It was a good win."

The Cavaliers had plenty of scoring chances in the first half, but were only able to capitalize on one with 14 minutes remaining. Chandler Catanzaro fired a laser from outside the box in front of the goal, past a diving Indian Land keeper and into the top corner of the net.

"(Chandler's) goal was a beautiful goal, which would have gone in against any keeper. That's one of the best goals I've ever seen on this team," said Wilcox.

Leading 1-0 at the break, the Cavaliers got some breathing room on a goal with 29 minutes remaining. Josh Shaw hammered a free kick from 30 yards away that rolled past the diving Warrior goalie.

Eight minutes later, Dominik Reindl found the net after two near misses in the first half, scoring with a header off of a throw-in to give Christ Church a comfortable 3-0 margin.

"The goal by Josh on the free kick was equally as nice (as Catanzaro's goal), and I think that would have gone in on any keeper. It went through their wall, but as far as the placement, he hit a rocket right in the corner," Wilcox said. "(Dominik's) goal was a throw and a flick, but it went in, and that's all that counts."
