Corace And Beggs Net Four Goals As Women's Lacrosse Tops Wingate


SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba scored 11 second-half goals and claimed a 17-10 win over visiting Wingate in South Atlantic Conference women’s lacrosse action on Wednesday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  The Catawba Indians improve to 5-3 overall and 4-1 in the SAC, while Wingate falls to 6-4 and 2-2.

Alyssa Corace (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac HS), with four goals and two assists, and Caroline Beggs (St. Johns, Fla./Bartram Trail HS), with four goals, led the Lady Indians.  Megan Shortt (Kernersville, N.C./E. Forsyth HS) added three goals and Meredith Jones (Barnesville, Md./St. John’s Catholic HS) had two goals and two assists.

With the game tied 6-6 at the break, Catawba tallied three times in the opening two and half minutes of the second half to take control.  The last two were scored by Beggs.  The Lady Indians broke the game open with a six-goal streak to go on top 16-8 with just over four minutes to play.

After winning just four of 13 draw controls in the first half, Catawba dominated the second half, taking 12 of 16.  Hannah Scott (Centreville, Md./Queen Anne’s Co. HS) and Kourtney Jones (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman HS) each won six draw controls for the Lady Indians.

Wingate got four goals from Erin Murphy and two from Jaclyn Chiesa.  Logan Bounds had a goal and two assists, while Madison LaBarbera had a pair of helpers.

The Bulldogs led 2-1 after just over two minutes on goals from Chiesa and Murphy.  Shortt tied it at the 25:42 mark and the Lady Indians reeled off four straight goals for a 5-2 edge.  The Bulldogs battled back and sent the game to the break deadlocked at 6-6 on Brittany Andrews’ goal with just 22 seconds left in the half.

Once Meredith Jones put Catawba ahead just 53 seconds into the final half the Lady Indians were on top the rest of the way.  Beggs put in back-to-back goals for a 9-6 edge and Shortt started the final run of six straight tallies with 21:44 remaining to give Catawba an 11-8 advantage. 

Bethany Davis (Salisbury, Md./Parkside HS) stopped a dozen shots in goal for Catawba.  Nicole Hinkle had 10 saves for Wingate. 

Catawba travels to Tusculum on Saturday for another SAC contest at noon against the Pioneers.
