Women's Soccer Rolls to 5-2 Win Over Pfeiffer

09_WSoccer_MH_02

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba picked up a 5-2 win over visiting Pfeiffer in women’s soccer action on Wednesday night at Frock Field.  The Catawba Indians up their record to 10-3-1, while the Falcons fall to 8-5.

Catawba started quickly, taking the lead in the second minute.  Erinn Wescoat (Egg Harbor, NH/Absegami HS) deflected a defensive pass and fed a perfect through ball to Alyssa Retundie (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS), who ran onto the ball in the box and slid a shot past Falcon keeper Jamie Alcala (Fredricksburg, VA).

 Pfeiffer answered, getting an equalizing goal from Megan Reaves (Mims, FL) at the 14.18 mark.  She connected from 35 yards out on a shot that was lofted over Catawba keeper Lindsay Webster (Hopkinton, MA/Hopkinton HS) and just under the cross bar. 

The Lady Indians regained the lead when Andrea Dunshie (Apex, NC/SE Raleigh HS) scored after taking a cross at the back post from Kaitlyn McFarland (Indian Harbour Beach, FL/Satellite HS) in the 38th minute.  Webster kept Catawba in the lead at the break, saving a breakaway from Kirsten Bartsch (Leesburg, VA) in the final 10 seconds of the half.

  Catawba extended the lead to 4-1 before the hour as Tasha Wilhelm (Mt. Savage, MD/Beall HS) scored on a 25-yard shot and Lainey Nichols (Frederick, MD/Middletown HS) converted a penalty kick after Wilhelm was tackled in the box.

Pfieffer got a goal back in the 80th minute on a tally by Kirsten Bartsch (Leesburg, VA) and nearly got within a single goal, but Sarah Mosier (Bel Air, MD/John Carroll HS) stopped Ashleigh Rhoads (Palm Bay, FL) with seven minutes to play.  Kenley Streetman (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) iced the game stealing the ball in the box and scoring in an empty net with just over five minutes left.

Catawba held a 19-6 edge in shots.  Alcala had five saves for Pfeiffer.  Webster’s lone save was the breakaway to end the first half.  Mosier also had a single save, playing the final 17 minutes.

“I have a lot of admiration for Sarah Denton and the Pfeiffer coaches,” said Catawba Coach John Cullen.  “I knew her team would come ready to play and they kept working until the end.  I felt we rose to another level.  We challenged our players to be better in front of goal tonight and be more dangerous in the box and to score five goals against a solid team having a good season is a credit to our players.”
