Women's Soccer drops decision at #22 Francis Marion

FLORENCE, SC – Playing without its top two scorers, Catawba fell to host Francis Marion 3-1 in women’s soccer action on Tuesday afternoon. The Lady Indians were without Kyley Thompson (Hagerstown, MD), who was injured in Saturday’s tie with Tusculum, and Jamie Fink (Woodbridge, VA), who was injured in the win over Brevard last Tuesday. Both could return on Saturday. The Patriots, ranked third in the Southeast Region, improve to 7-1, while Catawba, the region’s fifth rated team, falls to 5-1-1. Freshman Katie Riley scored the go-ahead goal and also assisted on another score to lead 22nd-ranked Francis Marion University to the win. Patriot junior Katie Roberts gave FMU a quick 1-0 advantage when she tallied her team-leading 11th goal of the season only 58 seconds into the match. Riley assisted on the goal. Catawba freshman Stephanie Morey (Ephrata, PA) knotted the score at 1-1 when she scored off a pass from Megan Mainer (Raleigh, NC) at the 15:20 mark. The deadlock lasted only 1:30 before Riley scored an unassisted goal and put Francis Marion ahead 2-1. It was Riley's sixth goal of the year. FMU junior Tristen Grooms accounted for the only goal of the second half, when she dribbled in and found the net at 56:50. The Patriots outshot the Lady Indians 18-8, while Catawba led in corner kicks 5-4. FMU goalkeeper Amanda Liles registered two saves, while Catawba's Kim Clayton (Haw River, NC) recorded four saves.
