Women's Soccer moves on to semifinals

SALISBURY, NC -- Freshman Mary Attea (Kenmore, NY) scored two goals as third-seeded Catawba College advanced to the semifinals of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Women’s Soccer Tournament with a 4-0 win over sixth-seeded Carson-Newman in first round action on Wednesday afternoon at Frock Field. The win ends the Lady Indians’ four-match losing streak and improves Catawba to 8-6-1 overall. Carson-Newman ends its season at 9-7-2. Catawba will face Presbyterian in one of the tournament's 11 a.m. semifinals at Tusculum College in Greeneville, TN, on Saturday.Attea opened the scoring in the eighth minute as Kim O’Hagan (Branchburg, NJ) played a ball into the box that freed Attea for a tap in goal. The Lady Indians would strike again less than 10 minutes later as senior Jennie Carson (Summerland Key, FL) headed home a cross from Jen Lowe (Enfield, CT) for a two goal edge. Catawba closed out the first half scoring on a nice solo effort by Jamie Fink (Woodbridge, VA) who dribbled into position just inside the box and fired past Lady Eagle keeper Leslie Durst (Sevierville, TN) at the 32:01 mark. Attea closed out the scoring on an assist from Fink in the 64th minute. The four goals marked a season-high for Catawba, who had not scored more than one goal in a match since a 2-0 win over Lenoir-Rhyne on Sept. 26. Junior goalkeeper Kim Clayton (Haw River, NC) made four saves to record her seventh shutout of the season. #6 CARSON-NEWMAN (9-7-2) 0 0 -- 0 #3 CATAWBA (8-6-1) 3 1 -- 4 SCORING SUMMARY C - 7:22 - Mary Attea (2) (Kim O’Hagan) C - 16:16 - Jennie Carson (2) (Jen Lowe) C - 32:01 - Jamie Fink (4) C - 63:42 - Attea (3) (Fink) Shots at Goal: Catawba 19, Carson-Newman 7 Corner Kicks: Catawba 2, Presbyterian 4 Goalkeeper Saves: Carson-Newman - Leslie Durst 2 Catawba - Kim Clayton 4 Offsides: Catawba 2, Carson-Newman 0 Fouls: Catawba 14, Carson-Newman 10 Cautions: Carson-Newman - Jallo (35'); Catawba - Black (42') ATT: 108 #######
