SALISBURY, N.C. -- Mount Olive, ranked 17th in NCAA II, picked up a 17-5 win over host Catawba in women's lacrosse action on Monday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  The Trojans improve to 9-3, while the Catawba Indians fall to 5-6.

The Trojans finished off the first half by scoring the last six goals to go up 9-3 at the break.  Catawba had battled back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game on back-to-back goals by Megan Shortt (Kernersville, N.C./E. Forsyth).  Just 30 seconds after Shortt tied the game, Riann Daziel put the Trojans up to stay with 14:22 to go before the half.

Daziel had three of her four goals in the opening half.  Saffron Snethen joined Daziel with four goals, while Claire Wigler totaled three goals with a pair of assists.

Catawba got three goals from Shortt.   Meredith Jones (Barnesville, Md./St. Johns Catholic) and Kirstyn Kruse (Sagamore Beach, Mass./Williston Northampton Prep) each added a goal and two helpers.  Bethany Davis (Salisbury, Md./Parkside) equaled her own school mark as she posted 17 saves over 54 minutes in goal.

Catawba is set to host Brevard in league action on Friday at 5 pm.
