Men's Lacrosse Win DSC Tournament Championshp 7-6 Over FSC

MARS HILL, NC -- Catawba withheld a late rally by Florida Southern to claim the 2012 Deep South Conference Men's Lacrosse Tournament Championship with a 7-6 victory over the Moccasins on Sunday afternoon at Meares Stadium.  The Catawba Indians win the DSC Tournament for the second straight year and improve to 14-2.  The Moccasins, who also lost to Catawba in last year's final, fall to 10-6.

Catawba grabbed the early lead, scoring the first two goals.  Tom Cullop (New Windsor, MD/S. Carroll HS) scored the opening goal at the 11:25 mark on an assist from Braden Artem (Acton, Ontario, CANADA/Christ the King HS).  Artem scored himself midway through the quarter for the 2-0 lead. 

Florida Southern cut the margin in half with just over four minutes to go in the opening quarter on a tally by Chris Murphy (Camillus, NY/W. Genesee HS).  The Indians would lead 2-1 after the first 15 minutes.

 A goal from Catawba's Freddie Turcio (Guilford, CT/Guilford HS) and one from the Moccasins' Dane Sorensen (Victoria, BC, CANADA/Claremont Secondary HS) kept the teams separated by a goal midway through the second quarter.  Cullop notched his second of the game with 2:33 remaining in the half to give the Indians a 4-2 edge at the break.

Three minutes into the second half, Sorensen again pulled Florida Southern within a goal on his second score of the game.  Catawba answered on a goal by John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) then went up 6-3 on a second tally from Artem at the 3:36 mark of the third.

Catawba led 7-4 after a goal from Cory Losselyong (Lewisville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) with 11:18 left, but FSC rallied late to again close within a goal.  Brendan Mykle-Winkler (BC, CANADA/Westhampton Beach HS) scored with 3:52 remaining and Mat Thompson (Akwesasne, Ontario, CANADA/Herkimer CC) made it 7-6 with 2:15 to go. 

Cullop nearly sealed it for Catawba, but his shot with just under a minute left hit the post and gave FSC one final chance.  Shane Tompkins’ (Bear, DE/Penn HS) shot with nine seconds left was wide and Turcio caused a turnover in side the final five seconds to give Catawba the win.

Artem and Cullop each scored a pair of goals for Catawba.  Sorensen had two goals for Florida Southern.  The Moccasins held a 40-30 edge in shots, including a 23-9 edge in the second half.  Michael Pecchia (Coquitlam, BC, CANADA/Heritage Woods HS), who was named the MVP of the tournament, posted 17 saves for Catawba.  Andrew Almansberger (Orlando, FL/Freedom HS) stopped 13 shots for Florida Southern.
