SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba got a career-high five goals from Alex Danzter (Holly Springs, NC/Holly Springs HS) and topped visiting Tusculum 15-8 in South Atlantic Conference men's lacrosse action on Saturday night at Shuford Stadium.  The Catawba Indians improve to 5-4 overall and 3-1 in the SAC, while the Pioneers fall to 4-5 and 0-4.

Tusculum grabbed the early lead as Jack Timerson scored three minutes into the contest.  The Pioneers were up 2-1 after a tally from Alexander Kleinberg, but Catawba reeled off the next seven goals to lead 8-2 early in the third.

Dantzler tied the game for the Indians at the 6:41 mark of the first quarter and Tyler Ulrich (Ephrata, PA/Ephrata HS) put Catawba on top with 4:49 to go in the period.  Dantzer capped the run by scoring three of the final four goals for the 8-2 edge.

The Indians were in control after going up 5-2 after a quarter.  It was 7-2 at the break.  Catawba held a 47-28 edge in shots and won 18-of-26 face-offs.   

Davis Hughes (Windermere, FL/W. Orange HS) followed Dantzler with two goals and three assists.  Ulrich and Adam Hebert (Charlotte, NC/Charlotte Catholic HS) each scored a pair of goals.

Mitch Chapman led Tusculum with three goals.  Ben Boyd scored twice. 

Catawba will return to action on Monday at Shuford Stadium to take on Queens at 4 p.m.  The game was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but has been moved up due to the impending weather forecast.
