Artem's Late Goal Helps Lacrosse Advance Past Wingate in DSC Tournament


WINGATE, NC --Catawba’s Braden Artem (Acton, Ontario, CANADA/Christ the King) scored five goals and assisted on the overtime game-winner as Catawba knocked off host Wingate 10-9 in the opening round of the Deep South Conference Men’s Lacrosse Tournament on Tuesday afternoon at Belk Stadium.  The Catawba Indians earned some revenge against the Bulldogs, who defeated them 8-2 on Saturday.  The Indians improve to 10-3 overall and advance to face Mars Hill on Thursday in the DSC semifinals.  Wingate falls to 7-8.

Artem collected four of his five goals in the opening half that saw Catawba build an 8-2 lead.  Freshman John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) put the Indians up just 45 seconds into the contest.    Freddie Turcio (Guilford, CT/Guilford HS) followed with a pair of goals to stretch the lead to 3-0. 

Artem tallied at the end of the first quarter and the start of the second as the Indians went up 5-0.  Wingate scored two of the next three goals, but Artem had two final tallies before the half.  The last came with just six seconds remaining before the break.  Catawba held a 20-11 edge in shots in the opening 30 minutes.

Travis Barrett scored two goals for Wingate in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 8-4 then the Bulldogs charged back in the final five minutes.  David Lee scored a man-up goal with 5:01 left to ignite a five-goal spurt that put Wingate on top with 1:05 left.  Lee had two other goals in the rally while Garrett Kendall added the two scores.

Artem was able to salvage the game for Catawba as he scored a man-down with a mere five seconds remaining.  In overtime, Artem assisted on the winner by Marty Tuohy (Weymouth, MA/Weymouth HS) at the 2:45 mark of extra time.

The teams were nearly dead even in shots and ground balls, while the Bulldogs were 14-of-22 on face-offs.  The Bulldogs converted just 1-of-9 in man-up situations, while Catawba capitalized in overtime for the lone goal of its five advantages.  Michael Pecchia (Coquitlam, BC, CANADA/Heritage Woods) posted 11 saves for the Indians, while Danny Dlugozima and Mason Cook combined to stop 11 Indian shots.
