Corace and Mills Help Women's Lacrosse Rally Past Erskine
DUE WEST, SC -- Catawba rallied in the second half to post a 14-12 victory over host Erskine in women’s lacrosse action on Wednesday afternoon at Huggins Field. The Catawba Indians improve to 5-6, while the Flying Fleet drops to 6-6.
Alyssa Corace (Mahopac, NY/Mahopac HS) and Ebony Mills (Harrison, ME/Oxford Hills HS/Mount Ida) each scored twice in the final half as the Lady Indians overcame a 9-7 deficit at the break. Corace finished with four goals and an assist, while Mills had three goals and two helpers.
Corace's first goal of the game followed back-to-back tallies from freshman Nicolette Salay (Columbus, NJ/N. Burlington Regional HS) to give Catawba a 4-2 lead after 10 minutes. Mills put the Lady Indians up 7-5 with 6:24 to go in the first half before Erskine put in four goals in the final six minutes of the half.
Catawba erased the deficit as Mills followed a goal from Meredith Jones (Barnesville, MD/St. John's Catholic HS) to pull the Lady Indians even with 21:42 to go. Samantha Burns gave Erskine its final lead at 11-10 with 18:59 to go then Corace scored to tie the game less than a minute later.
The Lady Indians scored three goals over the next 10 minutes, taking the lead with 10:02 left on a goal from Kim McConnery (Welland, Ontario, CANADA/Belmont Secondary HS/Victoria Univ.). Erskine closed within 13-12 on a goal from Ali Cole with 4:14 remaining, but Catawba kept the Flying Fleet off the board down the stretch and Mills iced it with her final goal with 10 seconds left.
