SALISBURY, NC -- Braden Artem (Acton, Ontario, CANADA/Christ the King) and Marty Tuohy (Weymouth, MA/Weymouth HS) each scored four goals as 11th-ranked Catawba defeated Florida Southern 13-9 in Deep South Conference men’s lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  With the win, the Catawba Indians improve to 8-2 overall and 4-1 in the DSC.  The Moccasins fall to 6-6 and 3-2.

The teams battled through a tight first half.  Adam Ismaeil (Middletown, NY) and Ike Hopper (Syracuse, NY) had goals to give Florida Southern early one-goal leads in the opening quarter.  Tuohy scored a man-up goal late in the quarter to pull Catawba even then tallied early in the second quarter to give the Indians their first lead at 3-2. 

Freddie Turcio (Guilford, CT/Guilford HS) gave Catawba a 4-3 lead with 9:30 left in the first half and that score held up until the break.  Turcio scored again just over a minute into the second half for a 5-3 lead and Catawba went on to score five in the quarter to go up 9-5 after three periods.  The teams traded goals back and forth in the final quarter as the Indians kept its four-goal margin the rest of the way.

Turcio picked up three goals in the win, while freshman John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) handed out three assists.  Hopper, Stephen Boyle (Selden, NY) and A.J. Monteleone (Stony Brook, NY) each scored twice for Florida Southern.

The Moccasins held a 36-30 edge in shot and picked up 28 ground balls to 18 for Catawba.  Michael Pecchia (Coquitlam, BC, CANADA/Heritage Woods) posted 14 saves in goal for the Indians.  Andrew Almansberger (Orlando, FL) stopped nine shots for Florida Southern.  Catawba was 2-for-4 on man-up opportunities, while holding the Mocs to one goal in six man-up situations.
