Women's Soccer set record with 10th straight win

WINGATE, NC -- Catawba College scored four second half goals en route to a 4-0 win over host Wingate in South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer action on Saturday afternoon at the Wingate University soccer facility. The win sets a new school record for Catawba for consecutive victories and also marks its best start to a season. Catawba, ranked 17th in NCAA II, improves to 10-0 overall and 3-0 in the SAC. Wingate falls to 6-4 and 1-2. The first half was a defensive struggle, as neither team could find its rhythm. Wingate outshot Catawba 4-2 in the opening frame. The Lady Indians wasted little time getting on the board in the second half. Sophomore forward McKenzie Burman (Rolesville, NC) scored her team-best 11th goal of the season in the 48th minute. Catawba freshman forward Paige Harrington (Albemarle, NC) passed the ball downfield and Burman beat a Wingate defender one-on-one for the score. Ten minutes later, Catawba sophomore defender Leigh Telzrow (Dallas, TX) converted a header on an assist from senior midfielder Jennifer Lowe (Enfield, CT) at the 58:18 mark. Lowe leads the South Atlantic Conference with 11 assists on the season. Lowe found the back of the nets on a give-and-go assist from Burman in the 68th minute. Catawba’s final tally was a Wingate own goal. Catawba outshot Wingate 12-11, thanks to a 10-7 advantage in the second half. Lady Indian goalkeeper Cathrine Balentine (Charlotte, NC) recorded the shutout, her third of the season, notching four saves. The Indians have recorded eight shutouts this season. Wingate netminder Alissa DiDonato (Lawrenceville, GA) played almost 71 minutes.
