Van Hoever's nine points help Lacrosse end losing streak at Presbyterian


   CLINTON, SC -- Catawba used dominating second and fourth quarters to post a 22-11 victory over host Presbyterian in Deep South Conference men’s lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon in Old Bailey Stadium.  The Indians snap an eight-game losing streak and improve to 3-8 overall and 3-5 in the DSC.  Presbyterian ends its season at 2-9 and 1-8.
It was a tight first quarter as Catawba held a 5-4 edge with Ryan Greaves (Owings, MD) giving the Indians the go-ahead goal off an assist from Mark Van Hoever (Pleasant Garden, NC) at the 1:14 mark.  With 8:04 remaining in the first, the Blue Hose led 3-1 behind back-to-back goals from Tyler Dunn (Casheirs, NC) that were both assisted by Tim Cassios (St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA).
 
The Indians exploded in the second period, outscoring PC 6-1 for an 11-5 advantage at halftime.  Catawba’s Matt Riley (Baltimore, MD) had a pair of goals in the run.
 
In the third quarter, the Blue Hose were only able to get within five (13-8) despite receiving two goals each from Cassios and Jared Domino (St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA).  Randall Worthington (Churchville, MD) had two of the Indians’ five goals.
 
It was all Catawba in the fourth period as six different players scored for the Indians.  Catawba out shot PC, 54-30, hustled to 72 ground balls, and was 29-of-37 face-offs.  Midfielders Sean Sullivan (Rockville, MD) and Eric Finland (McLean, VA) each won 13 face-offs and scooped up nine ground balls apiece.
 
Cassios finished the game with nine points to match the game-high on six goals and three assists, while Domino added a pair of goals and two assists and Dunn chipped in two and an assist.  Drew Tobias (Whitsett, NC) picked up seven loose balls, while Walton Crosby (Jacksonville, FL) and Matt Roach (Greensboro, NC) each had two caused turnovers.  Goalie David Hetu (Apex, NC) played all 60 minutes, making 16 saves and having six ground balls.
 
Van Hoever also had a game-high nine points on four goals and five assists for the Indians, while Riley contributed four goals and three assists plus nine ground balls.  Worthington added six points on five goals and an assist and Brent Smith (Ellicott City, MD) chipped in a hat trick and two assists, while Sullivan had three caused turnovers.  Ben Huber (Westminster, MD) and Tres Pethel (Mooresville, NC) split equal time in the net, combining for eight saves.
