Women's Soccer Improves Unbeaten Streak to Six Matches


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba recorded a 4-0 win over visiting Wingate in South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer action at Frock Field on Saturday afternoon night.  The Catawba Indians improve to 6-2-2 overall and 3-0-1 in the SAC, leading the league with 10 points.  The Bulldogs fall to 3-6-1 and 0-2.

Catawba wasted little time in taking the league, scoring off a corner kick in the fourth minute.  Lauren Whiteley (Greensboro, NC/SE Guilford HS) delivered the kick that Alyssa Schoenberg (Woodbury, MN/Woodbury HS) volleyed home for the lead.

The next two goals were scored on breakaways.  Tasha Wilhelm (Mt. Savage, MD/Beall HS) slid a ball through the defense that Alexandra Beshk (Mission Viejo, CA/Mission Viejo HS) ran onto then got past Wingate keeper Kathryn Smith (Indian Trail, NC) and dribbled from the top of the box to the empty net for a 2-0 edge. 

The final goal of the half came in the final two minutes as Ashley Boles (Ft. Bragg, NC/Smith HS) outraced Smith for a ball at the top of the box and would also score into an empty net.  Wilhelm tallied the final goal just past the hour mark.  Wingate held an 11-6 edge in shots, but Kathleen Blake (Greensboro, NC/NW Guilford HS) had four saves to post her second shutout of the season. 

“I’m pleased because we talked about starting quicker and with more purpose and came out and got a 2-0 lead by the half,” said Catawba coach John Cullen.  “We are starting to do the little things better, we’re finishing off goals, keeping clean sheets and defending better.  We finished the month strong after a 2-2 start which was important.  It gives us momentum going into October.”
