Whiteley Nets Two Goals as Women's Soccer Takes 4-1 Win


 SALISBURY, NC -- Senior Lauren Whiteley (Greensboro, NC/SE Guilford HS) scored a pair of first-half goals as Catawba defeated visiting Mount Olive 4-1 in women’s soccer action on Tuesday night at Frock Field.  The Catawba Indians improve to 2-0, while the Trojans fall to 1-3.

 Whiteley took a pass from Lainey Nichols (Frederick, MD/Middletown HS) five minutes into the match and beat Trojan keeper Ali O’Steen (Mayodan, NC) to put Catawba on top.  Nichols would tally a goal of her own a little over eight minutes later as she ripped a shot from 20 yards out that found the right side of the net for a 2-0 edge.

Catawba grabbed a 3-0 lead when Whiteley collected a loose ball 25 yards out and dribbled in to the box before netting her second goal of the match.  The Lady Indians final goal of the night came off a corner kick as freshman Andrea Dunshie (Apex, NC/SE Raleigh HS) headed home the kick from Carrie Wollaston (Landenburg, PA/Ursuline Academy).

Mount Olive got on the board in the 73rd minute when April Jacobs (Fayetteville, NC) scored off a pass from Gina Dos Santos (Whitehall, PA).  O’Steen made a dozen saves in goal for the Trojans as Catawba enjoyed a 26-7 edge in shots. 

“I was very pleased, especially with the way we dominated the first half,” said Catawba coach John Cullen.  “I was also happy for Lainey [Nichols], who worked hard over the summer rehabbing an injury and scored an outstanding goal.  Overall, as a staff, we are pleased with how we are playing and sharing the ball.  We need to work harder on movement off the ball.”
