08_WS_Chowan_06

MILLEDGEVILLE, GA -- Kristin Burton scored a pair of second half goals as 12th-ranked Armstrong Atlantic claimed a 3-1 win over Catawba in women’s soccer action at the Bobcat Shootout on Sunday afternoon at Georgia College & State University’s Bobcat Field.  The Pirates improve to 3-1, while the Catawba Indians suffer their first loss and fall to 1-1-1.

After a scoreless 30 minutes, Erin O’Rourke put AASU on the scoreboard in the 33rd minute.  She fired home a rebound off the post on a shot from Burton.  Catawba knotted the score with just 25 seconds left before the half as Kaitlyn McFarland (Indian Harbour Beach, FL/Satellite HS) scored off assists from Merrit Rollins (Columbia, SC/Lippen HS/W. Carolina) and Kristen Girardi (Asheville, NC/N. Buncombe HS/W. Carolina).

Armstrong Atlantic recaptured the lead just 1:27 into the second on the first of Burton’s two goals.  The reigning PBC Player of the Year added another goal in the 56th minute.  Tracey Mitchell made five saves for AASU.  Catawba split keepers.  Chelsea Binder (Woodstock, MD/Mount Hebron) had two saves in the opening half, while Lindsay Webster (Hopkinton, MA/Hopkinton HS) stopped three shots.

The Pirates held a slim 14-12 lead in shots, with Catawba having the edge in corner kicks 4-1.  Freshmen twins, Maria and Stephanie Borland (Hagertown, MD/N. Hagerstown HS) were named to the all-tournament team.
