SALISBURY, NC -- Junior John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) set a school record with nine goals to lead host Catawba to a 21-12 win over Wingate in Deep South Conference men's lacrosse action on Friday night at Shuford Stadium. The Catawba Indians improve to 6-6 overall and 4-3 in the DSC, while the Bulldogs fall to 2-12 and 1-6.
Wingate led 6-5 at the half and trailed only 9-8 late in the third quarter when Catawba took control. Matt Symes (Coquitlam, BC, CANADA/Centennial HS) scored a man-up goal for the Indians at the 5:33 mark of the quarter that started a barrage of six Catawba goals in a just over a four minute span. That upped the lead to 15-9.
The Indians had five of the first six goals to start the final quarter to make the score 20-10. Scheich broke the record with this ninth tally to make it 19-10 with 7:26 remaining. It bested the old mark of eight goals which was held by Phil Hemmeler who reached that number twice, once in 1999 and again in 2000.
Catawba scored the opening three goals and appeared to be in control until the Bulldogs snatched the momentum late in the opener quarter with three goals in the final four and half minutes. Wingate too the lead at the 12:50 mark of the second quarter on a goal by Chase Watts (Winston-Salem, NC). Scheich put Catawba on top for good at 8-7 with 10:53 to go in the third quarter, the first of his six second-half tallies.
