The Catawba Indians even their record at 7-7, while the Bobcats fall to 3-10.

The Indians would build their lead to 10-1 before Lees-McRae reeled off the final four goals of the half to close within 10-5 at the break.
The Bobcat closed the gap to 11-9 midway through the third quarter, but a goal by Nick Desper (Carrboro, NC/Chapel Hill HS) at the 7:40 mark and another by Green 40 seconds later sparked an eight-goal run that gave Catawba a comfortable 19-9 lead with 13 minutes to play.
