Chinn Sets Two School Marks As #12 Lacrosse Downs Lenoir-Rhyne

HICKORY, NC -- Freshman John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) scored five goals and senior Casey Chinn (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) set school marks for face-off wins and ground balls as 12th-ranked Catawba knocked off host Lenoir-Rhyne 18-10 in Deep South Conference men’s lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon at Moretz Stadium.  The Catawba Indians improve to 6-1 overall and 3-0 in the DSC, while the Bears fall to 2-7 and 0-3.

Scheich got Catawba on the board after the Indians had fallen behind 2-0 in the opening five minutes, but it was a stretch of eight unanswered goals in the second quarter that proved to be the deciding surge.  The Indians also closed the game with the final four goals after the Bears had pulled within 14-10 with seven minutes remaining.

The Bears went on top 4-2 just eight seconds into the second quarter on a tally by Anthony Mangili then Catawba answered with its eight-goal barrage.  Goals by Braden Artem (Acton, Ontario, CANADA/Christ the King) and Scheich drew the Indians even and Artem’s tally at the 8:01 mark put the Tribe up for good.  Mangili ended the run in the closing seconds of the half, but Catawba led 10-5 at the break.

Catawba out-scored the Bears 4-1 in the third quarter to build a 14-6 edge before Lenoir-Rhyne made a run to start the final period.  Marty Tuohy (Weymouth, MA/Weymouth HS) scored a man-up goal with six minute left and Scheich added two more down the stretch.

Chinn won 21 of 27 face-offs for Catawba, breaking the old record of 20 wins set by John Godfrey in 2003.  He also posted 17 ground balls to top Godfrey’s mark of 15 which he set in 2002. 

Scheich added an assist to his five goals to total six points.  Artem also accounted for six points with three goals and three helpers.  Tuohy and Freddie Turcio (Guilford, CT/Guilford HS) each scored three goals.  Tyler Kotch led Lenoir-Rhyne with four goals and had one assist.  Mangili and Robert Darrow each scored a pair of goals, while Logan Hansen picked up seven ground balls.

Catawba held a 49-36 edge in shots with Bear goalie Patrick Stasio recording 20 saves.  Michael Pecchia (Coquitlam, BC, CANADA/Heritage Woods) was credited with 14 saves between the pipes for Catawba.  The Indians also held a 37-30 edge in ground balls and won 22-of-31 face-offs.  Catawba scored on all six man-up opportunities.

Catawba will jump back into action with two home games this upcoming week against ranked opponents.  The Indians host #5 Merrimack on Monday at 7 p.m. then entertain 7th-ranked Mars Hill on Saturday at 7 p.m.
