HICKORY, NC – Carson-Newman, ranked seventh in NCAA II, claimed the title at 2006 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Women’s Soccer Tournament, defeating Catawba in a penalty kick shootout on Sunday afternoon at Bears Field. The game is officially listed as a tie as the teams played to a 1-1 draw through overtime.

The Lady Eagles are now 16-1-1, while the Catawba Indians are 12-4-4 and will await word for a possible NCAA Tournament bid.Catawba scored just 58 seconds into the match when freshman Jenna Peeples (Longmont, CO) scored in the box on one touch off a cross from the right side by fellow freshman Tasha Wilhelm (Mount Savage, MD). The goal was Peeples’ first of her career. Carson-Newman tied it in the ninth minute after Megan Julian (Knoxville, TN) finished off a cross from Erica Stegner (Nicholasville, KY). However, neither team was able to score the rest of the way despite Carson-Newman’ s 17-7 advantage in shots.

Carson-Newman won the shootout 4-2, although individual shootout results were not released. It was a hard fought match between two tired teams, stated Catawba Coach John Cullen.
