Women's Soccer Stays In SAC Race With Key Win Over Lincoln Memorial

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba earned a key win over Lincoln Memorial, defeated the Lady Railsplitters 2-0 in South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer action on Saturday afternoon at Frock Field.  The Catawba Indians stay in the race for the league title, improving to 12-4-1 overall and 5-1-1 in the SAC.  LMU falls to 10-4-1 and 3-3.

Catawba scored its first goal midway through the opening half.  Freshman Lena Suarez (Charlotte, NC/Hopewell HS) found space in the box and fired in her team-leading ninth goal of the season in the 21st minute.  The Lady Indians would take that one-goal lead into the break, holding a 9-6 edge in shots.

Another Lady Indian freshman struck less than five minutes into the second half for a two-goal cushion.  Erinn Wescoat (Egg Harbor, NH/Absegami HS) took a cross from senior Nikki Blackwelder (Asheville, NC/Asheville HS) and beat LMU keeper Denise De Resende (Taguatinga, BRAZIL) at the 49:41 mark.

The Lady Railsplitters would out-shoot Catawba 11-4 in the final half, but Lady Indian keeper came up with nine of her 11 saves in the period.  De Resende would record five saves for LMU.  Lincoln Memorial finished with a 17-13 edge in shots, with Catawba holding a 5-4 margin in corners.  Catawba was whistled for 27 fouls to six for LMU.

“I am very happy for my senior class tonight,” said Catawba Coach John Cullen.  “I was pleased with their individual performances and how they led the team.  LMU is a very strong technical team and you have to have very high levels against them and attention to detail and we did an exceptionally good job with that tonight.  We played well ourselves, having good discipline and composure.  We finished a second straight year without losing a regular season home match and those seniors have played a big part in that.”
