SALISBURY, NC – Catawba College scored three second half goal and defeated visiting Mars Hill 4-2 in South Atlantic Conference women’s soccer action on Saturday afternoon. The Lady Indians improve to 8-2-1 overall and 3-1-1 in the SAC, while Mars Hill falls to 6-4-3 and 1-4. Freshman Kyley Thompson (Hagerstown, NC) opened the scoring with the first of her two goals in just the sixth minute. Mars Hill responded on a goal by Danielle Dickens (Sanford, NC) just six minutes later as she beat Catawba keeper Kim Clayton (Haw River, NC) outside the penalty box and shot into an open net. The 1-1 score held until after the half, when freshman Maran Bock (Avondale, AZ) scored consecutive goals in just over a two minute span to give the Lady Indians a 3-1 edge. Her first goal came in the 53rd minute as Lisa DeMeyer’s (Jamestown, NC) cross was headed down by Megan Mainer (Raleigh, NC) onto the foot of Bock, who was just off the goal mouth. Her second came after a shot by Thompson was deflected by Mars Hill keeper Laura Humphries (Greeneville, TN) and went to Bock, again just off the goal mouth. Thompson would add an addition insurance goal on a breakaway in the 67th minute. It marked her team-leading ninth tally of the season. Rebekah Bunch (Asheboro, NC) closed out the scoring just 20 seconds after Thompson put Catawba on top 4-1 as she took a pass from Courtney Van Dyke (Maitland, FL) and beat Clayton to the near post.
