12_WSOC_KirkmanMaryAND

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba earned a first round Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Women's Soccer Tournament home match with a 3-1 victory over Brevard on Saturday afternoon at Frock Field.  The Catawba Indians, 8-2 over their last ten matches, improves to 12-6 overall and finish 5-4 in the SAC.  The Tornados end their season at 1-15-2 and 0-8-1.

Catawba's win, coupled with Anderson's loss to Lenoir-Rhyne, moved the Lady Indians into fourth-place in the league.  Catawba will host Anderson on Tuesday afternoon at Frock Field with kickoff set for 5 p.m.  Anderson claimed a 1-0 win at Catawba back on September 15 in the regular season meeting of the teams.

Mary Kirkman (Burlington, NC/Williams HS) got the Lady Indians out to a quick start against Brevard with a goal in the fourth minute.  Amy Iwanicki (Calgary, Alberta, CANADA/St. Francis HS/Tennessee-Martin) sent across the box to Kirkman at the back post, who fired in a goal just under the bar. 

The Lady Indians were reduced to 10 players right before the end of the half, but went up 2-0 early in the second half on a penalty kick by Allison Baucom (Salisbury, NC/W. Rowan HS).  Baucom was brought down in the box then converted the penalty in the 47th minute.

Brevard closed the gap to 2-1 just on the hour mark.  Katherine Nickles lofted a shot that just got through the hands of Catawba keeper Bethany Davis (Salisbury, MD/Parkside HS).  The Lady Indians clinched the game when Kirkman played a perfect through ball to Iwanicki, who just beat the keeper to the ball at the top of the box and lofted a shot into an open goal in the 68th minute.

Both teams got off 11 shots with six each on goal.  Davis recorded five saves, while her counterpart, Brittany Webster of Brevard, had three saves.  The Lady Indians had nine corners to just two for Brevard.
