SALISBURY, NC -- Junior Steven Ridolfo (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Gettysburg) scored with 18 second to play to lift Catawba to a 12-11 win over visiting Rollins in Deep South Conference men's lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  The Catawba Indians improve to 5-6 overall and 3-3 in the DSC, while the Tars fall to 3-9 and 2-4.

It marked the second straight one-goal win for Catawba.  The Indians had caused a turnover from Rollins with 30 second to play that led to the winning goal that was assisted by John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS).  After the goal, Daniel Rew (Forest Hill, MD/Bel Air HS) won the ensuing face-off and ran out most of the clock before a final shot from the Tars went wide as the horn sounded.

The Indians won the back-and-forth game that featured six ties and a pair of lead changes.  Goals from Tom Cullop (New Windsor, MD/S. Carroll HS) and Scheich gave Catawba a 3-1 lead early in the second quarter.  Cullop’s third goal of the half put the Indians up 5-2 before a Rollins goal by Jack Dever (Huntington, NY) made it 5-3 at the break.

Rollins scored five of the first six goals of the second half, including four in a row to go on top 8-6 at the 6:45 mark of the third quarter.  A tally from Cullop with seven second to go in the quarter pulled Catawba even at 9-9 heading to the final 15 minutes.

Cory Losselyong (Lewisville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) scored twice in a little over a minute around a man-up goal from Austin Ricci (Winter Park, FL) that gave Catawba an 11-10 lead with 9:33 left.  Riley Robinson tied the game with 1:44 remaining then Ridolfo got the winner.

Cullop had four goals and an assist to lead Catawba.  Ridolfo and Losselyong each had three goals, while Scheich had a goal and four assists.  Robinson and A.J. Gogan (Bexley, OH) had three goals for Rollins.  Adam Stefanowicz (Rydal, PA) picked up two goals.  Rew won 12-of-18 face-offs for Catawba.

Catawba will next host Wingate next Friday at 7 p.m. in its last game before the DSC Tournament.
