09_WSOC_RetundieAlyssa

SALISBURY, NC -- Sophomore Alyssa Retundie (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) had a goal and an assist to help Catawba to a 6-0 win over visiting Brevard in South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer action on Friday afternoon at Frock Field.  The win improves the Catawba Indians to 12-4-2 overall and 5-2-1 in the SAC.  The Tornados fall to 6-11-1 and 0-7-1.

Retundie opened the scoring in the 14th minute.  A long ball from near midfield by Laela Ghorbani (Highlands Ranch, CO/Highlands Ranch HS) bounced at the top of the box and Retundie beat Brevard keeper Sydney Douglas (Houston, TX) with a header as the two collided.  Freshman Katie Gair (Milton, Ontario, CANADA/St. Mary Catholic HS) put the Lady Indians up 2-0 at the half with a strike just outside the box that deflected into the right corner in the 22nd minute.

Catawba added a pair of goals two minutes apart midway through the second half.  Erinn Wescoat (Egg Harbor, NJ/Absegami HS) took a feed from Andrea Dunshie (Apex, NC/SE Raleigh HS) after a flick from Alanna Hantho (McLean, VA/Langley HS) and scored from the six at the 67.08 mark.  Tasha Wilhelm (Mt. Savage, MD/Beall HS) added a penalty kick at 69:05.

Maria Borland (Hagerstown, MD/N. Hagerstown HS) maneuvered through the Brevard defense and found the upper left corner from the top of the box in the 81st minute for her team-leading seventh tally of the season.  Amanda Beck (Thomasville, NC/E. Davidson HS) closed out the scoring, tapping a shot over the goal line following a shot off the post from Retundie that was directed under the keeper by Kristen Girardi (Asheville, NC/N. Buncombe HS/W. Carolina).

Douglas had nine saves for Brevard.  Catawba held a 33-5 edge in shots with all five Tornado attempts coming in the second half.  Catawba keeper Lindsay Webster (Hopkinton, MA/Hopkinton HS) made four saves in posting her fifth shutout.
