Girardi and Gibbons Pace Women's Soccer to Win Over Queens


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba claimed its first win of the year in women’s soccer action on Wednesday night by taking a 3-1 decision over visiting Queens at Frock Field.  Senior Kristen Girardi (Asheville, NC/N. Buncombe HS/W. Carolina) and freshman Brittany Gibbons (Woodleaf, NC/W. Rowan HS) each had a goal and an assist for the Catawba Indians, who improve to 1-2.  The Royals fall to 0-3.

Senior Alyssa Retuntie (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) got Catawba on top early as she took a pass from Girardi and fired home a shot from the top of the box in the ninth minute.  The score would stay that way until the break.  Catawba held a 6-1 edge in shots in the opening half.

Girardi added to the Catawba lead just past the hour.  Gibbons slotted a low cross into the box that the senior directed in from the six in the 62nd minute.  Gibbons pushed the margin to 3-0 as she bombed in a goal from 30 yards out with just under 20 minutes to play.

Queens fought hard from there and pulled a goal back three minutes later when Brooke Foil (Knightdale, NC) got loose on a breakaway.  Catawba thwarted a couple Royal chances in the final minutes. 

The Lady Indians finished with an 11-4 edge in shots.  Keeper Lindsay Webster (Hopkinton, MA/Hopkinton HS) collected one save for Catawba, while Kelsey Seretis (Norfolk, VA) made three stops for Queens.

Catawba returns to action on Sunday as they host Florida Tech at noon.
