Women's Soccer Claims Shutout at Mount Olive
MOUNT OLIVE, N.C. -- The Catawba College women's soccer team remain undefeated after a 4-0 victory over the University of Mount Olive Wednesday afternoon at Amon Field. The #14 Catawba Lady Indians improve to 3-0 on the year while Mount Olive falls to 0-3.
Catawba freshman, Kate Weisner, scored the first goals of the night with four minutes remaining in the first half. The goal was considered the game winner which made it her third in just three career games. The goal came on a breakaway that beat the Trojan keeper to the left side post. The goal also extended Weisner's early streak to three consecutive games of scoring a goal.
In the second half, Becky Frost doubled the Catawba led after taking a Sophie Waller pass and netting the ball past a diving keeper. With the goal, Frost would match Weisner's streak of consecutive games scoring.
Weisner would add a second goal on the night in the 71st minute. Weisner's shot bounced of the bottom of the crossbar and landed behind the goalie. The second goal also marked the second game in a row of scoring multiple goals.
In the final ten minutes of the game, Karen Presnell scored the final goal for the Indians which marked the first of her season.
Catawba's Bethany Davis and Angelica Pawlowski combined for the shutout. Davis recorded one save in 63 minutes of action while Pawlowski tallied five saves in the remaining time. Mount Olive's keeper, Gigi Ramirez recorded six saves in the loss.
The Lady Indians outshot Mount Olive 19-11 while aslo recording six corners and holding the Trojans to none. Catawba remained on the attack throughout the game as they were called offsides on four occasions.
The Indians will play their first home game of the season at Frock Field on Saturday as they begin South Atlantic Conference play against Anderson. The Lady Indians are set to kickoff at 5:00pm.
