Women's Soccer Has Five-Game Winning Streak Snapped at Mount Olive


MOUNT OLIVE, NC -- Freshman goalkeeper Lyndsey McIntyre recorded a career-high 13 saves for her first collegiate shutout, while Jackie Jimenez and Marie Richters sparked the offense with a goal and an assist apiece as Mount Olive defeated regionally 10th-ranked Catawba 3-0 in women’s soccer on Tuesday afternoon at Amon Field.  The Trojans improve to 2-6, while the Catawba Indians fall to 6-2. 

The win was the second in a row for the Trojans, despite being outshot 21-5.  Mount Olive was held to only two shots in the first half, but the second shot was the charm as the Trojans broke a scoreless tie late in the half.  Lyndsay Brennan dribbled to the top of the box and played the ball inside to Richters, who chipped past the goalkeeper for her first collegiate goal.
McIntyre already matched her previous career high of seven saves in the first half, stopping a pair of 18-yard shots by Alyssa Retundie in a span of 20 seconds late in the half and also stopping a header from the near post on a corner kick.  Catawba nearly got on the scoreboard in the 33rd minute on a shot that caromed off the bottom of the crossbar, but the Indians were called for offside before the shot was taken. Catawba was flagged for offside four times in the first half. Mount Olive went into halftime with a 1-0 lead.
Mount Olive stopped two dangerous scoring opportunities in the first eight minutes of the second half.  Trojan defender Caroline Smith prevented a potential breakaway in the 51st minute, chasing down a Catawba forward and forcing a goal kick.  Erynn Marino blocked a 10-yard shot two minutes later.
The Trojans added a goal just inside the 58th minute as Nia Celata dribbled from midfield all the way down to the left corner.  Celata crossed to Richters, who found Jimenez open for an 18-yard shot to give Mount Olive a 2-0 lead.
McIntyre recorded three saves in a span of less than four minutes shortly after the Trojans’ second goal, including saves on two close-range headers.  Catawba appeared to get on the scoreboard in the 72nd minute after McIntyre deflected a shot and the Indians put the ball in the goal, but a handball negated the goal.
Mount Olive sealed the win in the 75th minute when Jimenez lofted a service from midfield to Pattie Adkins, who outran the Catawba defense and slipped past the keeper to put the ball in an empty net.  The goal was the first for Adkins, who redshirted last year.  Along with the shot advantage, Catawba also held an 8-1 advantage in corner kicks. The Indians were flagged for offside seven times.

"It was a very frustrating night," said Catawba Coach John Cullen.  "We were very wasteful in front of the goal tonight.  We have worked on it hard in practice, but are not bringing it into the matches.  We have to continue to work at it because at the moment it is costing us games."
