Catawba held a 14-10 edge in shots and a 7-4 advantage in corners. “I was extremely pleased with the effort today,” said Catawba Coach John Cullen.
“It was the first time we had conceded a goal and the first time we had to play from behind and we showed a lot of maturity against a team that made the NCAA’s last season. It was a good learning experience and a great overall performance to get a 3-1 result on the road against a quality opponent.”
