SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba held visiting Belmont Abbey to one goal over the final three quarter as it rallied for a 6-5 win in men’s lacrosse action on Wednesday night at Shuford Stadium.  The 11th-ranked Catawba Indians improve to 9-2 overall, while the Crusaders fall to 5-6.

Catawba got a pair of goals in the opening six minutes to go on top 2-0, but the Crusaders scored the next four over a six minute span to grab a 4-2 advantage.  Nick Boylan (Canandiagua, NY) tied the game at the 4:34 mark then put Belmont Abbey on top with 2:17 left in the quarter.  Six seconds later, Brian Watson (Tampa, FL) upped the lead to 4-2.

The Indians scored the lone goal of the second quarter to pull within 4-3 at the break.  Braden Artem (Acton, Ontario, CANADA/Christ the King) got the goal with 3:31 left in the half.  Belmont Abbey regained its two-goal margin in the opening two minutes of the third quarter, but a man-up goal by John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) got Catawba back within a goal at the 10:29 mark and Freddie Turcio (Guilford, CT/Guilford HS) pulled the Indians even with 6:46 left in the quarter.

Artem scored the game-winner early in the fourth quarter then Catawba held off Belmont Abbey for the final 13:25 to post the win.  Artem and Turcio each had two goals for Catawba, while Scheich had a goal and an assist.  Boylan led the Crusaders with two goals.  Tanner Scharr (Canandiagua, NY) had a goal and an assist.  Mike Pease (Alexandria, VA) grabbed seven ground balls for Belmont Abbey and also caused seven turnovers.

Catawba held a slight edge in shots (27-26) and ground balls (35-31), while winning one extra face-off.  Michael Pecchia (Coquitlam, BC, CANADA/Heritage Woods) turned back 14 shots in goal for Catawba, while Tony Kikola (Baltimore, MD) made 10 saves for the Crusaders.  Catawba scored once on six man-up opportunities, while denying Belmont Abbey in each of its six tries.
