HARROGATE, Tenn. -- Catawba got four goals from Connor Kennedy (Weddington, N.C./Weddington/Tampa) and shutout host Lincoln Memorial over the final half in recording a 12-3 victory in South Atlantic Conference men's lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon at the LMU Soccer Complex.  The Catawba Indians earn their first win in improving to 1-3 overall and 1-1 in the SAC.  The Railsplitters fall to 3-2 and 0-2.

After an opening goal by Cole Fanzo (Crofton, Md./S. River), Kennedy netted two straight for a 3-0 Catawba lead.  The Indians led 5-1 after the opening quarter then saw the Railsplitters close within 5-3 after goals from Jared Courchene and Nick Borriello.  The Indians were able to gain an 8-3 halftime lead on goals by Reid Lichtenberger (Austin, Texas/Vandergrift), Liam Lynch (Marietta, Ga./Pope) and Isaiah Welch (Abingdon, Md./Patterson Mill) in the final 2:17 of the quarter.

Kennedy scored the only two goals of the third quarter to extend Catawba's lead to 10-3, while Welch and Justin Warnock (Jamestown, N.C./SW Guilford) closed out the scoring in the fourth.  The Indians held LMU without a goal over the final 38 minutes.

Lichtenberger and Welch followed Kennedy with two goals each.  Josh Reedy (Lake Mary, Fla./Lake Mary) assisted on three goals.  Ryan Applegate (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Ponte Vedra) made 11 saves in goal. 

Catawba dominated the face-offs, winning 14 and losing just two.  Connor Eakes (Broomfield, Colo./Broomfield) won 13 of his 15 attempts.  The Indians held a 41-30 edge in shots.

Catawba returns to action on Tuesday, hosting Bentley at 7 pm.
