Chaplin Lifts Catawba to 1-0 Victory Over Brevard
BREVARD, NC -- Kali Chaplin's first half goal proves to be a game winner to lift Catawba over Brevard 1-0 in South Atlantic Conference women's soccer action on Saturday afternoon at the Brevard Soccer Field. The Catawba Lady Indians improve to 8-5-1 on the season and 4-3-1 in the conference. With the loss Brevard falls to 3-9-1 and 0-6-1.
Catawba’s Kali Chaplin (N. Palm Beach, FL/Benjamin School) netted the game's lone goal in the 40th minute when she corralled a loose ball in front of the net and beat goalie Brittany Webster on her left side.
The Tornados Lindsay Pritchard had a golden opportunity when she nearly buried a shot off her shoulder, but the Indians Bethany Davis (Salisbury, MD/Parkside) stonewalled the shot.
Catawba outshot BC, 16-7, including by a 10-2 margin in the first half. The Indians accumulated 14 corner kicks compared to BC’s two. Webster finished the day with seven saves while seven different Tornados registered a shot.
Davis racked up three saves to go with her clean slate while Chaplin paced the Indians with four shots while three others took two.
