Beshk Delivers in Overtime as Women's Soccer Rallies Past UNC Pembroke

SALISBURY, NC -- Sophomore Alexandra Beshk (Mission Viejo, CA/Mission Viejo HS) scored 7:23 into overtime to give Catawba a come-from-behind 3-2 win over visiting UNC Pembroke in women’s soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field.  The win improves the Catawba Indians to 8-3-2, while the Lady Braves fall to 7-5-1.

 For the second time in five matches, Catawba found itself in a 2-0 hole at the break, but rallied once again for a win.  UNC Pembroke took the early lead, getting a goal by Alex McManus (Waxhaw, NC) in the 17th minute and one by Meredith Pierson (Chinquapin, NC) just under four minutes before the half.

Beshk would start the Lady Indian rally just past the hour as she pounced on a loose ball just off the goal line from a cross from Tasha Wilhelm (Mt. Savage, MD/Beall HS) that got under UNCP keeper Whitney Beverly (Richlands, NC).  Lindsay Hinkle (Highland, MD/River Hill HS) drew Catawba level as she found the net from the top of the box following a punch out on a throw in.

Catawba had several opportunities off three corner kicks in the final minute, but each header was blocked or saved.  Beshk hit the crossbar twice in the opening minutes of overtime then capped the comeback as she took a through ball from Wilhelm and beat Beverly from 12 yards out.

Chelsea Binder (Woodstock, MD/Mount Hebron HS) made six saves after entering the game for Catawba at the half.  Beverly had six stops for the Lady Braves.

“As a coaching staff and players I think we experienced every kind of emotion from frustration, to despair, to relief,” stated Catawba coach John Cullen.  "Coming from 2-nil down once again shows tremendous resilience and perseverance, but the worry for us is the manner we started the game.  We have to do a better job starting because we finish with a very strong schedule.  I am proud of the team of how we worked to get the result back, but hopefully we will learn we need to come out ready, sharp and intense and put ourselves in a winning situation sooner.”
