SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba overcame a 4-2 halftime deficit, out scoring visiting Brevard 8-2 in a decisive third quarter, to post a 15-7 win in South Atlantic Conference men's lacrosse action on Tuesday night at Shuford Stadium.  The Catawba Indians improve to 5-8 overall and 3-4 in the SAC, securing a spot in the six-team league tournament.  The Tornados fall to 2-13 and 0-8.

Brevard never trailed in the first half, taking the lead just under two minute in on a tally from Ryan Taylor.  Taylor scored again at the end for the quarter for a 4-1 Tornado advantage.  Liam Lynch (Marietta, Ga./Pope), who scored midway through the first quarter for the Indians, put home the lone goal of the second quarter to make it 4-2 at the break.

Brevard built its lead to 6-3 in the opening two minutes of the second half before Catawba went on a 10-0 run.  Connor Kennedy (Weddington, N.C./Weddington/Tampa) got the barrage started with a goal at the 7:38 mark of the third.  Kennedy fed Tony Bellotte (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park) with one of his five assists 30 seconds later and Joe Barber (Upper Marlboro, Md./Bishop McNamara) tied it at the 6:25 mark from Bellotte.

Kennedy gave Catawba its first lead at the 2:13 mark of the quarter and Cole Fanzo (Crofton, Md./S. River) scored back-to-back to push the Indians to a 9-6 lead.  Bellotte scored with just two second left in the quarter to make it 10-6.  Catawba scored three man-up goals in the final period to close out the win.

Fanzo posted four goals to lead the Indians.  Kennedy had two goals and five assists, while Bellotte had two goals and two helpers.  Lynch also found the net twice for Catawba.  Ryan Applegate (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Ponte Vedra) stopped 11 shots in goal.

Taylor and Natron Curtis each scored a pair of goals for Brevard.  Colton Girard recorded nine saves in goal.

Catawba will finish up the regular season in its final home game of the year on Saturday at 7 pm against Lenoir-Rhyne.
