WINGATE, NC -- Catawba got three goals from Alyssa Corace (Mahopac, NY/Mahopac HS) and grabbed a 10-8 victory over host Wingate in South Atlantic Conference women’s lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon at the Irwin Belk Track Complex turf field. The Catawba Indians even their overall mark at 3-3 and improve to 2-0 in the SAC. The Bulldogs fall to 1-2 and 0-2.
Wingate scored the first two goals, but Catawba came back on goals from Corace, Meredith Jones (Barnesville, MD/St. John's Catholic HS) and Kim McConnery (Welland, Ontario, CANADA/Notre Dame HS/Monroe CC) to lead 3-2. A goal from Ebony Mills (Harrison, ME/Oxford Hills HS/Mount Ida) and a second from Jones pushed the lead to 5-2 midway through the first half.
The Bulldogs rallied back to pull even by the half. Logan Bounds notched the tying goal with 2:19 left before the break.
Corace scored twice for Catawba in the first eight minutes of the second half to put the Lady Indians up 7-5. Wingate closed within 8-7 on a goal from Allie Holland with 14:05 remaining, but Mills tallied at the 10:30 mark for a two-goal lead. Nicolette Salay (Columbus, NJ/N.
