Big Senior Night Gets Women's Soccer Home Tournament Match
SALISBURY, NC -- The Catawba women’s soccer team earned a home match for the upcoming Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament with a 5-0 victory over visiting Mars Hill on Saturday afternoon at Frock Field. The win improves the Catawba Indians to 10-7-1 overall, and 6-4-1 in the SAC, while the Lions fall to 4-11-2 and 2-8-2. The Lady Indians will host Lincoln Memorial on Tuesday in the first round of the tournament.
Needing a win to move into fourth place and earn the right to host the tournament match, Catawba wasted little time in taking control of the match. Senior Amy Iwanicki (Calgary, Alberta, CANADA/St. Francis HS/Tenn.-Martin) took a pass from Mary Kirkman (Burlington, NC/Williams HS) in the fifth minute to stake the Lady Indians to the quick lead. Juliana Conte (Hampton, Ontario, CANADA/Trinity Catholic HS) added a second goal in the 11th minute.
Catawba took that 2-0 lead to the half, but added to the margin eight minutes into the second half on a strike from Alex Hulsey (San Diego, CA/Francis Parker HS). Iwanick and Conte assisted on the goal. Allison Parker (Mt. Ulla, NC/W. Rowan HS) added a fourth goal in the 66th minute and Sophie Waller (Watford, ENGLAND/St. Michael’s Catholic HS) capped the scoring with just under eight minutes left.
Catawba held a 20-5 edge in shots with a 10-5 advantage on goal. The Lady Indians had five corners to one for Mars Hill. Bethany Davis (Salisbury, MD/Parkside HS) and Angelica Pawlowski (Las Vegas, NV/Bishop Gorman HS) combined on the shutout for Catawba. Davis stopped four shots with Pawlowski recording one save. Maslyn Greene (Dallas, GA) had three saves for Mars Hill, while Hannah Stapleton (Concord, NC) had a pair of saves.
Catawba will next host Lincoln Memorial in the first round of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. Complete pairings will be announced by the conference office.
