Burman sends Women's Soccer past Wingate 1-0

SALISBURY, NC -- Junior McKenzie Burman (Rolesville, NC) scored her 13th goal of the season in the 61st minute sending Catawba College to a 1-0 win over visiting Wingate University in South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer action on Saturday night at Frock Field. The Lady Indians push their winning streak to seven and remain undefeated in SAC play at 8-2, 4-0. The Bulldogs fall to 7-4 and 1-2. Through the first 45 minutes Wingate out shot Catawba 5-3 and had the physical advantage but couldn’t push across the go-ahead goal. Burman struck just past the hour as Steph Morey (Ehprata, PA) sent a pass straight up the middle to a streaking Burman, who beat Bulldog keeper Kathryn Smith (Indian Trail, NC) on the left-side for the 1-0 advantage. Wingate had two quality chances for the remainder of the contest with the first coming in the 64th minute. Lisa Service (Tyrone, NORTHERN IRELAND) fired a shot from 20 yards out that hit the crossbar and deflected straight down, but never crossed the goal line. The Bulldogs final shot came off the foot of Caitlin Brougham (Medway, MA) who blasted a shot toward a wide-open net, only to have Lauren Ebersole (Hagerstown, MD) block the shot on a defensive save. Cathrine Balentine (Charlotte, NC) made four saves on the night, picking up the shutout. Smith made one stop for the Bulldogs. This is what a conference game should by about, stated Catawba Coach John Cullen. Two quality teams playing a quality match. Credit to Wingate for playing an outstanding match, but credit also to our girls, who stepped it up in the second half.
