Women's Soccer records third straight clean sheet

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College picked up their third-straight shutout as the Lady Indians defeated visiting Concord, WV 4-0 in women’s soccer action on Tuesday afternoon at Frock Field. Catawba improves to 5-2 with the win, while the Mountain Lions fall to 2-7. McKenzie Burman (Rolesville, NC) picked up her team-leading ninth goal in the 17th minute putting the Lady Indians on the board. Junior Kim Crowley (Glendale, AZ) found the back of the net, at the 22:35 mark, for her third of the season, firing in a shot from 30 yards out. Catawba took a 3-0 lead in the 25th minute as Kyley Thompson (Hagerstown, MD) took a shot from a sharp angle on the left side tallying her fourth of the year. Catawba’s fourth and final goal of the night came in the 82nd minute as freshman Nikki Blackwelder (Asheville, NC) scored her first collegiate goal of the season as Crowley picked up the helper. Jenny Cleland (Winchester, VA) led Concord with four shots on the night, three of them on goal. Cathrine Balentine (Charlotte, NC) and Kathleen Blake (Greensboro, NC) combined on the shutout for the Lady Indians. For the Mountain Lions, Kristen Gray (Atlantic City, NJ) made six saves in relief of starter Sarah Coelho (Catlett, VA). “We weren’t at our sharpest tonight,” stated Catawba Coach John Cullen. “We did enough to win the game, but we’ve set standards here and tonight we were disappointed as a coaching staff because we fell a little below them. It’s always good to win 4-0 and not play particularly well. Hopefully we have a good game in us for the conference match on Friday.” CONCORD, WV (2-7) 0 0 - 0 CATAWBA (5-2) 3 1 - 4 SCORING SUMMARY C - 16:19 – McKenzie Burman (9) C - 22:35 – Kim Crowley (3) C - 24:06 – Kyley Thompson (4) C - 81:58 – Nikki Blackwelder (Crowley) Shots at Goal: Catawba 19, Concord 9 Corner Kicks: Catawba 15, Concord 1 Goalkeeper Saves: Concord – Sarah Coelho 0, Kristen Gray (29’) 6 Catawba - Cathrine Balentine 1, Kathleen Blake (46’) 5 Offsides: Catawba 2, Concord 0 Fouls: Concord 12, Catawba 4 Cautions: Concord – Davies (69’) ATT: 101 ######
