Women's Soccer falls to Carson-Newman in battle of ranked teams

SALISBURY, NC -- Carson-Newman, ranked 18th in NCAA II, scored twice in the second half and defeated 25th-ranked Catawba 2-0 in South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer action on Saturday night at Frock Field.

The Lady Eagles improve to 11-1 overall and 4-1 in the SAC, while Catawba falls to 9-2-2 and 3-1-1. Each team had several chances to break through in the first half, but were not able to find the net.

Brittany Moore (Lenoir City, TN) had the first chance on a volley off a cross from Rebecca Angus (Middleborough, ENGLAND), but was denied by Catawba keeper Kathleen Blake (Greensboro, NC) just before the half hour. McKenzie Burman (Rolesville, NC) had a breakaway chance for Catawba five minutes later, but her strike was wide. Angus was saved on a blast from the top of the box in the 38th minute, while Catawba’s

Alyssa Schoenberg (Woodbury, MN) had a header off a corner kick just over the bar. Carson-Newman continued to threaten in the second half, but were constantly denied by Blake until the 75th minute when Megan Julian (Knoxville, TN) settled down a cross from Christie Murray and put home the first tally.

With Catawba pushed up in the closing minute, Angus collected a ball at midfield and dribbled down uncontested for an insurance goal with just 21 seconds left. Blake made 13 saves for Catawba as Carson-Newman held a 22-7 edge in shots. It was a close match between two good teams, said Catawba Coach John Cullen. I thought the first goal would play a big part in the match and once they got it we had to chase. We were unable to step up in the last 30 minutes when we needed to.
