Women's Lacrosse Falls in Back-And-Forth Battle With Shippensburg

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Shippensburg pulled away from a 9-9 tie over the final 13 minutes and grabbed a 13-11 win over host Catawba in women's lacrosse action on Monday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  The Raiders improve to 2-1 on the season, while the Catawba Indians fall to 2-2.

The game was tied seven times and the lead changed hands on three occasions in a tightly played contest.  Alyssa Corace (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac) pulled Catawba even at 9-9 with 16:10 to go, but Allison Fugate put the Raiders up for good with 12:23 left.  Amanda Frank followed a little over a minute later to put the visitors up 11-9 and take the first two-goal lead since Shippensburg led 5-3 with just over seven minutes left in the first half.

Nicolette Salay (Columbus, N.J./N. Burlington Regional) and Megan Shortt (Kernersville, N.C./E. Forsyth) twice got the Lady Indians within a goal in the final 10 minutes, but Frank answered each goal for Shippensburg to keep a two goal edge.  Frank finished with a game-high five goals.  Fugate posted three goals with Madi Newman scoring twice. 

Kirstyn Kruse (Sagamore Beach, Mass./Williston Northampton Prep) put Catawba on top just 42 seconds into the game and Meredith Jones (Barnesville, Md./St. Johns Catholic) made it 2-1 at the 26:35 mark.  Shippensburg would run off three straight goals to lead 4-2, but Catawba came back to score the final three of the half to go on top 6-5 at the break on Salay's tally with 3:06 left. 

Shippensburg scored the first two goals of the second half and although Catawba pulled even three times, the Lady Indians could never retake the lead.  Jones had two goals and four assists to lead the Lady Indians.  Shortt, Corace, Salay and Hannah Scott (Centreville, Md./Queen Anne's Co.) all had two goals.  Catawba dominated the draw controls, winning 22 of 26.  Scott had 10 draw controls and Shortt six.  Scott also caused three turnovers.

Shippensburg edged Catawba in shots 27-23 and held a 27-24 advantage in ground balls.  Catawba scored just once on five free-position shots, while the Raiders converted three of five.  Ally Frymoyer tallied seven saves for Shippensburg.  Bethany Davis (Salisbury, Md./Parkside) stopped seven shots for Catawba with Madison Anselmo (Port Jefferson Station, N.Y./Comsewogue) recording two saves over the final five minutes.

Catawba is back in action on Friday as the Lady Indians host West Chester at 1 pm.
