Women's Soccer Triumphs over UNC Pembroke in OT
SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba celebrated victory in its last home game of the year in dramatic fashion with a 1-0 non-conference defeat of UNC Pembroke Tuesday night at Frock Field. The Lady Indians improve to 5-10 overall as the Braves fall to 8-5-3.
The Lady Indians secured the game-winner just three and-a-half minutes into the first overtime period. Alyssa Retundie (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) was caught in the right corner of UNC Pembroke’s side of the field when she cleared it out to Athena Bless (Asheboro, NC/SW Randolph HS). Bless took a touch and then found Juliana Conte (Hampton, ONT, CANADA/Holy Trinity Catholic HS) hovering far post 12 yards from goal, which finished right post past Brave keeper Brittany Bennett.
Lindsay Webster (Hopkinton, MA/Hopkinton HS) compiled three stops for Catawba which outshot Pembroke 10-8.
The Lady Indians look to cement their spot in the SAC tournament next week in Rock Hill, SC as they travel to Brevard for a 2:00 pm start on Saturday, Oct. 29 to finish off the regular season.
