Women's Lacrosse Bow Out To #13 Queens In SAC Semis
SALISBURY, N.C. -- The Catawba women's lacrosse team saw its most successful season to date come to an end with a 21-5 loss to 13th-ranked Queens in the semifinals of the South Atlantic Conference Tournament on Friday afternoon at the Queens Sports Complex. The Catawba Indians close out the year at 9-9, while the Royals improve to 12-5 and advance to Saturday's championship game.
Catawba scored the opening goal as Meredith Jones (Barnesville, Md./St. Johns Catholic HS) put the Lady Indians up just two minutes into the game. Queens tied the game at the 27:14 mark and took the lead for good with 26:19 remaining after back-to-back goals from Nicole Forgione.
The Royals went on to score 12 straight goals before a three goal spurt by Catawba late in the half. Queens led 14-4 at the break and cruised to the win.
Megan Shortt (Kernersville, N.C./E. Forsyth HS) had two of Catawba's five goals. Jones and Nicolette Salay (Columbus, N.J./N. Burlington Regional HS) each had a goal and an assist. Caroline Beggs (St. Johns, Fla./Bratram Trail HS) had the other tally for the Lady Indians adding one more to her school-record total for 51 on the year. The freshman also set a record with 69 points. Jones set a record with 24 assists on the season.
Jena Ready led Queens with six goals and added a pair of assists. Forgione and Brittany Larranaga both had three goals. The Royals held a 35-14 edge in shots and won 16 of the 28 draw controls.
