#20 Women's Soccer upsets #5 Tusculum 3-0

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. --- Catawba College freshman Paige Harrington (Albemarle, N.C.) scored two goals to lead the 20th-ranked Lady Indians to a 3-0 upset win over No. 5 Tusculum College Saturday evening at Pioneer Field. The last two times Tusculum has been ranked in the top 10 and faced Catawba, the Lady Indians have dealt the Pioneers a shutout loss. In 2001, Catawba downed No. 7 Tusculum 2-0 in Salisbury, N.C. The Lady Indians took an early lead on a goal by sophomore McKenzie Burman (Rolesville, N.C.) in the sixth minute. She followed up her own missed shot on a loose ball after a corner kick. Harrington scored the first of her two with just over three minutes remaining in the first half, giving Catawba a 2-0 halftime lead. She put the match out of reach in the 54th minute, dribbling the ball the last 30 yards before putting a shot over the TC goalkeeper. The Lady Indians' Cathrine Balentine (Charlotte, N.C.) went the distance in goal, making three saves for the team's 10th shutout on the season. TC's Alyssa Alterman (Covington, La.) had six saves and allowed all three goals. Tusculum (9-3-1, 4-1 SAC) hopes the third time is the charm in their match with UNC Asheville Tuesday afternoon. Matches scheduled in 2002 and 2003 against the Bulldogs were rained out. Catawba (12-1-1, 4-1-1 SAC) plays at Presbyterian College next Saturday at 7 p.m. Score by Period 1 2 F #20 Catawba (12-1-1, 4-1-1) 2 1 3 #5 Tusculum (9-3-1, 4-1) 0 0 0 Scoring Summary CAT - McKenzie Burman, 6:14 CAT - Paige Harrington (Lauren Ebersole), 41:43 CAT - Paige Harrington, 54:08 Shots: TC 11, CAT 18 Corner Kicks: TC 4, CAT 5 Fouls: TC 7, CAT 10 Offsides: TC 0, CAT 1 Goalkeeping TC - Alyssa Alterman (82:12, 6 saves, 3 GA); Ashley Moreira (7:48, 2 saves, 0 GA) CAT - Cathrine Balentine (90:00, 3 saves, 0 GA) A - 139
