Dominating second half lifts Women's Soccer to win over Pembroke

SALISBURY, NC -- Senior McKenzie Burman (Rolesville, NC) scored a goal and added two assists as Catawba defeated visiting UNC-Pembroke 4-2 in women’s soccer action on Tuesday night at Frock Field.

The win improved Catawba to 6-1-1, while the Braves fell to 4-3-1. Burman got the scoring started in the 16th minute as she took a pass from Kelly Fearman (Alliston, ONT, CANADA) in the box, pushed past a defender, and drilled a shot for her first goal of the season. UNC-Pembroke answered on the half hour as Kim Oijerstedt (Stockholm, SWEDEN) passed to Melanie Cobb (Richlands, NC), who slotted a shot inside the far post for the equalizer.

Catawba would control play for much of the second half and retook the lead just three minutes into the final half when Leigh Telzrow (Dallas, TX) headed home a cross from Burman just under the crossbar for the 2-1 lead. Burman would assist on the eventual game-winner as her cross found the head of Kim Crowley (Glendale, AX) who drove the header back across the goal in the 58th minute.

The Braves trimmed the lead to a single goal with 11 minutes remaining as Kelly Jones (Maple Hill, NC) delivered a through ball to Oijerstedt, who dribble in on a breakaway to cut the margin to 3-2. Catawba was able to get a final goal just seconds from time when Lindsay Hinkle (Highland, MD) freed Julie Wilson (Norfolk, VA), who dribbled to the six before scoring. I would just like to praise the girls for their effort, said Catawba Coach John Cullen.

We introduced some new things on Monday and we only had a short time to work on it, but we looked much more improved. We should be able to build on this for future games.
