SALISBURY, NC -- Sophomore Alyssa Corace (Mahopac, NY/Mahopac HS) tied a school record with eight goals as host Catawba downed Lees-McRae 17-7 in women's lacrosse action on Tuesday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  Corace tied the record set by Ebony Mills (Harrison, ME/Oxford Hills HS/Mount Ida) against Lees-McRae in 2012.  With the win, the Catawba Indians pick up their first win of the year and improve to 1-2.  The Bobcats fall to 1-1.

Meredith Jones (Barnesville, MD/St. John’s Catholic HS) got Catawba started, scoring just 1:21 into the contest.  Kim McConnery (Welland, Ontario, CANADA/Notre Dame HS/Monroe CC) made it 2-0 after five and a half minutes before Corace tallied three times over a six-minute span to put the Lady Indians up 6-0 midway through the first half.

Taylor Drake (Jupiter, FL) notched the first goal for Lees-McRae at the 14:24 mark, but Corace scored back-to-back to make it 8-1.  Jenah Tracy (Naples, FL) had two first-half goals for the Bobcats as Catawba led 11-3 at the break.  Corace tallied six goals in the opening 30 minutes.

Katelin Rooney (Naples, FL) scored early in the second half for Lees-McRae then Catawba put in three straight for a 14-4 lead with 14:46 left.  Corace netted her seventh goal at the 11:43 mark and tied the record with 6:43 to go to give the Lady Indians a 16-7 edge.

McConnery followed Corace with three goals for Catawba.  Jones added two goals and two assists.  Tracy picked up three goals for the Bobcats with Drake collecting two goals with two assists. 

Catawba held a 36-15 edge in shots.  Mia Emmerson (Orlando, FL) stopped a dozen shots for Lees-McRae.  Bethany Davis (Salisbury, MD/Parkside HS) came up with six saves for Catawba.

Catawba will play its first South Atlantic Conference game on Saturday, hosting Brevard at 4 p.m.
