Mainer's two goals propels #19 Women's Soccer to sixth straight win

SALISBURY, NC – Senior Megan Mainer (Raleigh, NC) scored a pair of goals to help 19th-ranked Catawba College to a 4-0 win over visiting King College in women’s soccer action on Wednesday afternoon at Frock Field. The Lady Indians, winners of six straight, improve to 12-2-1, while King falls to 11-5. Catawba will host Mars Hill on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the opening round of the South Atlantic Conference Tournament. Mainer opened the scoring in the 17th minute off a cross from Kim O’Hagan (Branchburg, NJ). O’Hagan’s initial cross attempt had been blocked, but on her second try she lofted a cross to the back post that Mainer headed in. The score would remain 1-0 until 10 minutes into the second half when Catawba struck twice in just over a two minute span to pull away. Lisa DeMeyer (Jamestown, NC) scored at the 55:58 mark on a long shot that was not handled by the Tornado keeper. Mainer would strike again at the 58:14 mark, with a flick-header off a corner kick from Cathrine Balentine (Charlotte, NC). Senior Charlsie Downing (Bloomington, IL) capped the scoring in the 75th minute off a pass from Monica Ortega (Miami,FL). Catawba keeper Kim Clayton (Haw River, NC) made three saves in recording the shutout, her eighth of the season and 29th in her stellar career. Amy Patterson (Stone Mountain, GA) made seven stops for King, who were outshot 15-4.
