Late Goals Lift Carson-Newman Over Women's Soccer 2-1


JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Carson-Newman scored twice in the final 18 minutes to take a 2-1 win over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer action on Saturday night at McCown Field.  With the win, the Lady Eagles improve to 5-6 overall and 3-1 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 5-4-2 and 1-2-1.

Catawba took the early lead just 10 minutes into the match as Erinn Wescoat (Egg Harbor, NJ/Absegami HS) tallied off an assist from Juliana Conte (Hampton, Ontario, CANADA/Trinity Catholic).  That score would hold through the first half as each team managed just two shots.

Carson-Newman applied the pressure in the second half with 10 shots to just two for the Lady Indians.  The Lady Eagles would net the equalizer in the 73rd minute on a goal from Morgan Gruenfelder.  With just four minutes remaining, Andrea Saevik broke free and netted the game-winner.

Sarah Tompkins had a pair of saves for Carson-Newman.  Catawba keeper Lindsey Webster (Hopkinton, MA/Hopkinton) recorded six saves.
